is there a list of answers or is it one of those that you have to guess? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
do you have anyone helping you?
let's define our variables first let T = the number of cookies terri has let J = the number of cookies jennifer has with me so far?
i am not sure if he is still here, he has not responded to me at all
I'm here sorry
no problem, but i think that the expert left..
my computer doesn't update fast when someone responds all the time
I'm back lol ok, so they have 480 cookies altogether, then T + J = 480, with me so far?
it also says that terri has 1 2/3 as many cookies as jennifer to make things easier, I'm going to rewrite 1 2/3 as 5/3, since these two fractions are equal so T = (5/3)J, with me so far?
great, now we can replace "T" with "5/3 J" so T + J = 480 becomes J + (5/3)J = 480 know where to go from here?
would you do 2j x 5/3= whatever
where are you getting 2 from
start by adding J + (5/3)J = ?
combining the 2 js
uh not quite 1 + (5/3) = ?
as a fraction please
terri and jennifer now have diabetes
good, we can also write 2 2/3 as 8/3 now we have J + (5/3)J = (8/3)J so (8/3)J = 480 know where to go from here?
@Vocaloid i feel as if you are a genius
divide 8/3 on both sides
yup so 480/(8/3) = ?
hmmm not quite when we divide by a fraction, we can flip the fraction and multiply so 480/(8/3) becomes 480*(3/8) which equals...?
ahaha that's nice of you guys to say, I'm far from a genius though
and yes 180 is the answer, good job~
thank you so much!
so Jennifer has 180 cookies
wait... if you have time, can you help me?
