Ok, let’s build the problem using the numbers given.   The problem would look like this: Gov B + Gov A = 291,025 Gov B = X As Gov A makes 49,425 more than Gov B, it is represented as X + 49,425 So our formula is: X + X + 49,425 = 291,025 We...

Ok, so let’s simplify the fractions this way 2 1/4 = 8/4 + 1/ 4 or 9/4 3 2/3 = 9/3 + 2/3 or 11/3 To add fractions, we need a common denominator, so the easiest one would be /12: 3x 9 for the numerator; 3 x 4 for the denominator would be: 9/4 = 27/12 And 4 x...

Ok, let’s start by rounding the 55 minutes to 60 minutes or 1 hour. We can then add the rounded hour to the whole hour to make two hours. Now that we have rounded and added to get a whole number, we can use multiplication as: 2 hours x 68 (miles per hour) = 136 miles as an approximate...

It is easier to visualize if we think of fractions as division. An example would be 360/1 means the same thing as 360 divided by 1 to equal 360. Let’s start by making all of the numbers fractions. 360 is the same as or equals 360/1 So, if we want to see what the groups of people are,...

To determine the color of each dress set, we use the same formula: (black) 24/1 x 1/3 = 24/3 (red) 24/1 x 1/6 = 24/6 (blue) 24/1 x 1/ 4 = 24/4 Which, would look like this: (black) 24/3 = 8 (red) 24/6 = 4 (blue) 24/4 = 6 If we then add the three dress colors together...

Because no one would have known in 1923 that there would be a second World War.  WWII would begin in 1939, though the Nazi party would be gaining strength in 1923 as a result of inflation in Germany after being presented a bill for damages after starting what we now call WWI.  The General...
