Hi Jenny, I am also working on another problem PM Std Ed 6A pg 56 #6 Mrs. Roland is planting some greens in a straight row. Each plant is placed 7/12 m apart. There is a plant at each end. How many green bean plants are there in a distance of 7m? The answer is 13m Wouldn't it be 7 divided by 7/12? 7 x 12/7 = 12 but then you add the 2 ends 7/12 + 7/12 = 14/12 = 1 1/6 So the answer would 13 green bean plants vs 13 1/6? I think, right? : ) Thanks!
Hi Jenny, my daughter was working on a problem and needed support, PM Std Ed 6A pg 48 #4. Her math tutor said the sentence, "There are twice as many girls as there are boy in a class." was not necessary information. They solved the problem 2/9 + 1/6 = 4/18 +3/18 = 7/18 The answer in the book is 5/27 not 7/18 I see the solution provided is very different. Would you please explain it for me so that I may walk my daughter through it correctly. Thanks! BMG
