204.8?
or 205 bleh
|dw:1353115107314:dw| so he's adding 70 white balls
what about the 12 ugh this sucks where did the 80 come from?
what 12? :/
1280 i mean
|dw:1353115263887:dw|
ohhh
128(10) = 1280 16(x) = 16x
1280/16 = 80
so 80 - 10 = 70. he's adding 70 white balls
is this making sense?
why are you subtracting 10 again?
because x is the total number of white balls AFTER adding. and 10 is the number of white balls already in there. we have to subtract the original from the new
to see what was added
I get it now, thank you :)
can you find out how many striped ball were added now?
balls*
hmmm 43?
wait wait 42!
what would the ratio be then? :/
