Scuff Posted June 3, 2009 Share Posted June 3, 2009 We just started up IP again and I'm running into problems already! I can figure these out, but am at a loss on how to explain it or how they want the student to figure it out. So, help pls! First problem: Topic 2, #25 The sum of 2 numbers is 100. The smaller number is 60 less than the bigger number. What is the smaller number? And they have a bar chart with it showing 100= 60 + ? & bigger # The answer is 20. With the bigger # being 80. But how does one firgure that out besides trial and error? Second problem is similar. Topic 2, #26 The sum of the two numbers is 1000. The difference between them is 400. Find the larger number. So 300 and 700, but again, is there a method to figuring this out?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
