    The question is how much did he make per hour.... per means to divide so word for word make per hour means 92 / 18 That would give you 5.11 per hour. so how many $5.11 are there in $138 138/5.11 27.0058 hours I would assume you would answer 27 hours.

    but its like x is above the 6 and the 6 is above the 4 i guess like cross multiply

    Whenever you have a fraction = a fraction you can always cross multiply (top left times bottom right = bottom left times top right) x 6 - = - 6 4 so x times 4 = 6 times 6 4x = 36 x = 9

    In other words 9 6 - = - 6 4 if you reduce both of those fractions you get 3 - 2

    9.5 x --- = --- 19 30 30(9.5) = 19x 285 = 19x x = 15

    It doesn't matter which way you multiply, you get the same answer.

    At a certain time of day, a tree casts a 9-foot shadow at the same time that a person 6 feet tall casts a 4-foot shadow. What is the height of the tree?

    OR You can do Shadow of tree Height of tree ------------- = ------------ Shadow of person Height of person 9 x - = - 4 6 9(6) = 4x 54 = 4x x = 13.5

    I am SO sorry... don't know what is wrong with my math. They both = 13.5 because 54/4 = 13.5 (I don't know WHERE I got 16)
