Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, what is 19*3=?. When you get that subtract that number from 60. Do you get 22?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, so we now know that the answer is not A. Now try this: Do 22*3=?. Then subtract 54 from the answer. Do you get 22?
