Another math problem Q


Recommended Posts

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?
