Abbeygurl4 Posted October 8, 2012 Share Posted October 8, 2012 My ds is on lesson 74, lesson practice problem "c". C. Eighty is 0.4 of what number? The method they want him to use is : 80 = 0.4 x Wn 80/0.4 = 0.4 x Wn/0.4 ( I couldn't type it as a fraction) 200 = Wn DS's method is : 80 = 0.4 of X 0.4 = 2/5 (80 divided by 2) 5 = 200 My question is : Is there a reason behind Saxon having him do this problem a specific way or can ds use his method? Ds says that the Saxon method is very confusing to him. I'm not sure what to do. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
