**April**, Tuesday, September 30, 2008 at 5:59pmok thank you.

See I say there are 75 cars, cars only. Making it a total of 104 of cars and trucks.

29 trucks

29 cars

and then the 46 more cars

total 75 cars and 29 trucks.

problem ask for just cars.. 75

29 + 46 = 75

He keeps getting the total 75 then subtracting 29 (for the trucks) and having 46 cars. So he has the answer as 46 - 29 = 17

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, September 30, 2008 at 6:25pmYes. There are 75 cars in the parking lot.

The answer of 17 doesn't make any sense.
