Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Whenever 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wow thank u i should of typed it like that lol ok so 4x = 36 and x = 9 but is that the answer ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i understand now so that would mean the answer is 16=x

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OR 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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)
