Faith earned 1/3 of her allowance from washing the dishes and 1/6 of her allowance from cleaning her room. How much of Faith $36 allowance was not earned from washing the dishes or cleaning room?

  • MATh - ,

    1/6=$6
    1/3=$12=
    $18-$36=
    $18 or 1/2

  • MATh - ,

    First find out how much of her allowance she earned washing dishes and cleaning her room:

    (1/3)+(1/6) (Find LCD)
    =(2/6)+(1/6)
    =3/6
    =1/2

    So if 1/2 of her allowance is earned washing dishes and cleaning her room, then the other 1/2 of her allowance is earned doing other things. So:

    (1/2)(36)=$13.00

  • MATh - ,

    Sorry, hit the wrong key:

    (1/2)(36)=$18.00
