# Ling is using fraction strips to add 2/3 and 7/12's The sum is one whole Plus how many twelves?

Hello from MrBillDoesMath!

3/12   (aka 1/4)

Discussion:

2/3 + 7/12   = 8/12 + 7/12                     => as 2/3  = (2*4)/(3*4)   = 8/12

= 15/12

= 1 + 3/12

Thank you,

MrB

Which shows a correct order to solve this story problem? Allie, Serena, and Mikala went to the movies. They spent a total of \$30.90 for their movie tickets and \$8.50 each for popcorn and drinks. The total tax for the tickets and snacks was \$3.96. They split all the costs evenly. How much did each girl pay? A. Step 1: Add \$30.90 and \$8.50. Step 2: Add the tax to that amount. Step 3: Divide by 3. B. Step 1: Calculate the price of 1 ticket. Step 2: Divide the total tax by 3. Step 3: Add the amounts from Steps 1 and 2 to \$8.50. C. Step 1: Add the price of the tickets and the amount spent on food. Step 2: Add the amount of the tax. Step 3: Divide that total by 2.

30.90 + 8.50 + 3.96 = 43.36 (total cost)

If they are all splitting it evenly then divide by total ammount of people

43.36 / 3 = 14.45 each

100 POINTS! I REALLY NEED TO GET THIS CORRECT! Factor the quadratic trinomial. x^2−3x−18
Hint: To use type an exponent, use the caret symbol (^) by using the keys shift + 6

By inspection you need 2 numbers that multiply together to -18 and sum to -3. These numbers are -6 and 3. Therefore we have:

x2−3x−18=(x−6)(x+3)
