Yeah @ccswims

- anonymous

ok I figured it out

- anonymous

amir ways 206, and the other person weighs 164

- anonymous

How did u get that ?

- anonymous

since 206 is 42 than 164

- anonymous

okay, so I did 370-42 to get 328

- anonymous

then I divided 328 to get 164

- anonymous

which is what Mike ways

- ccswims

you have to divide it amongest 3 people

- ccswims

not just 2

- anonymous

oh, I did not see that, I think you are right @ccswims

- anonymous

No its 2 people @ccswims

- anonymous

How is it 3 people ?????!

- anonymous

because it is asking about Steven

- ccswims

because they want to know STEVENS weight

- ccswims

not Mikes, if it was about Mike then yea, it would only be 2 people

- anonymous

what are the options?

- anonymous

does it mean all together steven,mike, and amir?

- ccswims

yea

- anonymous

I think I can try it and see if I get anything

- anonymous

No its just asking about steven

- anonymous

And how much he weighs

- ccswims

i think i got the answer, but idk because the weight i got for Amir is pretty unrealistic

- ccswims

i got 165.34 fro Steven

- ccswims

are there any choices you have for this question?

- ccswims

like, multiple choices?

- anonymous

No its just a problem where you show ur work

- ccswims

ok, well what i did was divide 370 by 3 for the 3 people. i then got 123.3. 123.33 - 42 = 81.33. 123.33 + 83.33 = 204.66
370 - 204.66 = 165.34

- ccswims

so basically i got
Amir = 84.33
Mike = 123.33
Steven = 165.34

- ccswims

but idk because Amir's weight seems unrealistic

- anonymous

I don't think that is right because when I added them I didn't get 370

- anonymous

Me either

- ccswims

WAIT

- ccswims

i meant 81.33 not 84.3

- ccswims

but now thats even more unrealistic

- anonymous

I was subtracting 370-42 then got 328 should I divide 328รท3 ??

- anonymous

@ccswims That seems about right, but I don't think the problem is very realistic like you wrote/said

- anonymous

I don't think there is a problem with your answer but rather a problem with the problem XD

- anonymous

Yeah this problem was very stupid !!!
