can 110/19 be reduced
No because 19 is not a prime factor of 110
on one of my answers for the age thing i got r=110/19 but i need a whole number i think i did this wrong too
my equation that i got was (r-5)-5=20(r-5)
and when i tryed to solve i got 110/19
are you sure it shouldnt be \[-5(r-5) = 20 (r-5)\]
well the problem says: Gloria is 20 years older than reggie. five years ago, she was five times as old as he was. how old is each now
The equations you get are g = r+20 g-5 = 5(r-5) =5r-25 Then need to solve these simultaneously ie taking the 2nd - 1st you get -5=4r-45 so 4r=40 r=10 and g=30
oh i know what i did again shouldnt my first equation be G=R+20
oh yeah i keep forgetting that part
20-5 would be 15 right?
or is it negative
