## snowballhockey 3 years ago Kyle lives 7/9 miles from school. If he walks to school each day, how far will he walk in a 5-day week? What do u do is it mulitpying or dividing please help me!!!!!

1. karatechopper

multiply 7/9 by 5

2. jlengyel

How much does he walk in one day? He walks 7/9 in the morning then 7/9 in the afternoon right? So figure out what that means for 5 days in a week.

3. snowballhockey

so u multiply 7/9 by 5 and then u will get the answer is that right?????

4. snowballhockey

well

5. jlengyel

Well, that is correct if you are only calculating how much he walks to school. But what about walking home? You're asking how much he walks in a week, so you're really asking what is 7/9 * 10

6. snowballhockey

7. snowballhockey

no itonly says to school thoe so what wouldn't be what i said

8. snowballhockey

so wouldn't be 7/9 5 is that right well it would be multiplying then in't that right

9. jlengyel
