11 is how much she lost not how much she has now so we use 11 again. she had 55 and lost 11. the equation is now 55-11=?

  • anonymous
and whatever you get from that \[55-11=x\] you simply use the x and place it on top of 86 like so \[\frac{ x }{86 }\]

and that's the fraction and you leave it as is or simplified further if you can.
