Mom-ninja. Posted January 16, 2012 Share Posted January 16, 2012 Either I'm a dolt or I have a right to get irritated with the math books I have. My answer and the book's answer are different. "Melissa shares equally the cost of a new fence with three other neighbors and the cost of road repair with two other neighbors. The fence cost $600 and the road repair cost $1,200. What is Melissa's share of the cost?" a. $600 / 4 + $1,200 / 3 b. ($600 + $1,200) / 3 / 2 c. $600 / 3 + $1,200 / 2 d. ($600 + $1,200) / 5 Which is the correct expression?
