okay thanks! can you please explain to me how you got this answer? : )
Well you have given: Distance b/n 1st and 2nd is 5.7 and distance between 2nd and 3rd is 1/3 of 5.7, which means divide 5.7 by 3
so distance b/n 2nd and 3rd is 5.7/3 = 1.9
so you multiply then divide?
or just divide?
So from 1 to 2 there is 5.7 and from 2 to 3 there is 1.9. Which means from 1 to 3 there is 5.7+1.9 = 7.6
no u just divide, and sorry my previous answer was a typo, its not 13.3, the answer is 7.6
hmm im totally confused : /
is this the first step --> 5.7 * (1/3) = 1.9 then you would add 5.7+1.9= 7.6?
& you get 7.6 as your answer?
yes
thank youuu! : )
