Alex is establishing his beneficiaries for his life insurance policy. The policy is for $150,000.00 and 1/2 will go to his daughter, 3/8 will go to his stepson, and the rest will go to his grandson. What dollar amount will go to the grandson? (Please explain step-by-step)
well do you know the amounts his daughter and stepson will get?
No, I need those steps as well. If that's ok?
well you've been given a fraction of what each person gets. the daughter gets half, the stepson get's 3/8 ... and the remaining goes to the grandson. what is half of 150,000? what is 3/8 of 150,000? do you know how to find those 2 amounts?
Refresh my memory? Lol
75k will go to the daughter 18750 will go to the grandson 56250 will go to the stepsom I think this is the answer. Someone should check my math to be absolutely sure
I think I told you not to solve it angeldark... you're not even sure if your answer is right... i'm trying to get her involved in solving it so she understands it.
@LynnMichael if the daughter got half of the amount, it means that she got \(\large \frac{1}{2} \times 150000 = 75000 \) use the same idea to find how much the stepson got
that's not the final answer... i hope u know that
