**Reiny**, Sunday, September 21, 2008 at 12:51pmFirst of all, do not put so many questions all into one posting, please.

Your answers are correct, except the following:

11) I got 121.91

16) should be 78

31)

18w + w + (10/7)w ??

= (306w+17w+10w)/17

= (333/17)w

33) is it (x-2)/3 = 4/5 ??, if so then

5x - 10 = 12 ( I multiplied both sides by 15

5x = 22

x = 22/5

**Carmen**, Sunday, September 21, 2008 at 1:18pmthank you but I still do not get 33.

the question is

x minus the fraction 2/3 = the fraction 4/5. to get the answer i would add the fraction 2/3 to the fraction 4/5 which gets me x = 22/15, right?

**Reiny**, Sunday, September 21, 2008 at 3:34pmyes, if that is how the question was written.

you had posted:

x - 2/3fraction = 4/5fraction

which I had interpreted as

(x-2)/3 = 4/5

the answer I provided reflected that version.

Your original question with the word "fraction" inserted was quite confusing.
