    J, K, and L all lie on the number line, right? J is at 12 and L is at 93. What is the distance between them?

    You're driving down the road. You pass Milepost 12. You are going to Milepost 93. How much farther is it?

    So if you're at J which at 12 on the number line and L is at 93, what is the distance from J to L?

    I don't remember kilometers, but they're as good a unit as any. So if the distance from J to K is 2/3 the distance from J to L, and the distance from J to L is 81 km, what is the distance from J to K?

    13.5km?

    Reality check. 2/3 is greater than 1/2. One half of 81 is at least 40. 2/3 is greater yet. 13.5 doesn't compute.

    How do you calculate 81 times two thirds?

    That was weird. I only hit "Post" once.

    Yes, it is. So if you're at 12 and going 54 farther, where will you be?
