I thought the answer was 150
anonymous
  • anonymous
I definitely would not say the answer is 150 considering that 250 support Moore alone.
anonymous
  • anonymous
How'd you get 150?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I did 250-100
anonymous
  • anonymous
Why'd you subtract the 100 people that supported Moore as well as Allen?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Don't they also support Moore?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I subtracted it because isn't it apart of the 250
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hmm. Let me double check the question real quick.
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, they are separate people because a person that supports only Moore can not also be the same person that supports both Moore and Allen. Understand?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh I understand
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, all you need to do is add all of the people that support Moore together to get the answer.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you have your adjusted answer then?
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait, but where does the 100 people come from?
anonymous
  • anonymous
It is in the question.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes but that 100 is moore and allen together, the people who support both of them
anonymous
  • anonymous
...your point?
anonymous
  • anonymous
if I add that 100 to the 250 that would be the people who also support allen and the question just wants the people who support moore
anonymous
  • anonymous
It still says that they are supporters of Moore as well.
anonymous
  • anonymous
The question does not ask you how many support Moore alone, but just the people that support him, so yes 100(both)+250(Moore)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Got it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
what if it did ask for moore alone? how woul di go about solivng it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
The answer for that one is in the question
anonymous
  • anonymous
which is 250?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I believe that is what I read as well.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, for the question that was actually asked, do you have the answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I take that as a not yet.
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry yes I do thank you
anonymous
  • anonymous
Alright, good luck with the rest of your studying.
