10. Sunshine447

which is 1/2, right?

11. MauriceLong

yes

12. Sunshine447

okay, so it's asking if 25 is half, whats the whole. How many halves make a whole?

13. MauriceLong

2 halfs makes awhole

14. MauriceLong

0.02

15. Sunshine447

right, so we mulitply the half by.........?

16. MauriceLong

so, 0.50*25

17. Sunshine447

no, 2 * 25 because we want the whole (2 halves) so we multiply the half by 2. In other words, 2*25=?

18. MauriceLong

2*25= 50
