Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't think the correct way to find the answer is using the 6.3. All of the possible answers you are giving me are not options. Its just like your walking from point a to point b in this case its 2.2 and 8.5. What Point are you at when you stop onefourth of the way? Could that work?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2take 1/4th of 6.3 then add that result to 2.2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04.3 maybe? My math isn't very good.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2taking 1/4th of 6.3 is the same as dividing 6.3 over 4 when you used that calculator, what is the result of 6.3/4 ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you add 2.2 to that. Then my answer was correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yeah then you compute 2.2+1.575

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/4 distance from a to b \[a+\frac{ba}{4}=\frac{4a}{4}+\frac{ba}{4}=\frac{4a+ba}{4}=\frac{3a+b}{4}\] so you can just use a weighted mean. \[\frac{3\times2.2+8.5}{4}=3.775\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good planning Jim. Say that its incorrect, so I do all the work and get the answer myself. LOL

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well I initially thought you said that 6.3/4 was equal to 3.775
