Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets look at teh left hand side \[(10+\frac{5}{8}+3+\frac{5}{8})+2+\frac{3}{8} \\ (10+3+2)+(\frac{5}{8}+\frac{5}{8}+\frac{3}{8})\] can you add 10 and 3 and 2 together?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh I guess we can write in fraction form later I was trying to keep it in fraction form because the choices are written as fractions but we can go to decimals if you want then write as fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you don't want to write 1.6 that is an approximation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[16.625=n+12 \\ 16.62512=n\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes 1612 =4 so 16.62512=4.625 so if the directions was to "solve for n" you would say 4.625 and there is only one choice above that says 4 and something if the directions say "solve for N" you would say none of these but as you said you meant to say "solve for n" :p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes that does say 4 and something
