A. 5 feet B. 12 feet C. 18.4 feet D. 10.4 feet
This is just like the previous problem. Calculate how much Brittany is going to use 4 pieces each 4/5 ft long or a total of 16/5 ft or 3 1/5 feet or 5.2 feet. The piece that this is going to be removed from is 15.2 feet since this is in decimal units use the 5.2 feet 15.2-5.2 = 10 ft. I don't see this as a choice have you copied the choices correctly or I have goofed both are possibilities! lol
radar, I think your conversion from 3 1/5 to 5.2 feet is perhaps incorrect?
I see my error it is 3.2 that i subtrtace from the 15.2 or 12 feet
Yes joshusnoble2000 therein is the problem, I had a "senior" moment lol
Haha. It happens to the young too. Embarrassingly often for this one.
Yes indeed, I hope Kyrie is not ruined for life because of that mistake. How about Kyrie did you see where I goofed?
3 1/5 =3.2 NOT 5.2 lol
Lol you didn't ruin me. But lost me...Yes.
Lol I have no idea what the answer might be! D:
Where are you at with this. Do you see how the amount used by brittany (total) is 3.2 ft.
The answer is 12, but I want you to understand how to solve it. The first step it figure out how much Brittany used.
is the answer C?
No it is B
:O well darn..I still don't understand this! :'S
Choice C of 18.4 ft is more string than was on the original piece The only had a 15.2 piece so you know the amount left after Brittany whacks off what she needs is going to be LESS than 15.2 ft.
Kyrie, you must first figure the amount that Brittany is going to remove from the string. She is going to take off 4 pieces each 4/5 of a foot or 4 times 4/5. Does that seem reasonable?
So she would need to take off 4 times 4/5 or 16/5. That is 4 times 4/5|dw:1328722911488:dw|
Convert 16/5 to a mixed number = 3 1/5 convert to decimal 3.2
Subtrtact the 3.2 from the 15.2 piece leaving 12 ft remaining. You have gone, I hope you are not one who only wants an answer rather than gaining the knowledge how to get the answer.
