okay so i am in algebra 1 and i keep getting these two problems wrong. i got all of the other ones right but i keep getting these two wrong so i end up getting a 60%! this will be the fourth time that i will be redoing it. someone please help me!!! its making me so upset and i want to get my assignment higher than a 60% because i really care about my grades and i really want to pass algebra!
It has been determined that an average high school student uses 13,000 yards of pencil lead during their time in school. What is this distance in inches?
