thowell Posted January 23, 2012 Share Posted January 23, 2012 Ok dd11 is using Systematic Mathematics. Here is the question A boys club raised money. They spent 3/5 of the money they raised on food, a total of $17.10. How much money did they raise? How much money was left? The answer is $28.50 and $11.40 left. How does she write this equation? They have taught her to write things like this Ex. 3 is what part of 12 would be the same as 3 = ____ x 12 or what part of 30 is 1/8 would be the same as _________ x 30 = 1/8 I can not for the life of me figure out how to make her understand how to write the equation for this word problem. Thanks for any help!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
