I have to type it in!
anonymous
  • anonymous
alright i made a mistake and that is instead of 17/MP is should be MP/17
anonymous
  • anonymous
and that gives us 21.25 for MP
anonymous
  • anonymous
so now we subtract MQ from that to get x
anonymous
  • anonymous
and we end up with 6.25 as the answer :)
