Posted by So lost on .
after diving 93m below sea level, a diver rises at a rate of 6 meters per minute for 8 minutes. where is the diver in relation to the surface?
i can't figure this one out
72 + 93= 165
but this still doesn't look right at all!!!!!!!!
Nope, it isn't right.
To begin, 6 times 8 = 42
Visualize the diver going down 93 meters.
Then he comes back up 42 meters.
You can't add these together. What do you think you should do with these numbers?
I would subtract 93-42= 50
Oops -- neither one of us checked MY math. I had a typo in my multiplication.
6 * 8 = 48
93 - 48 = 45 meters below the surface
lol I came back just now to type about that.
also this problem has me lost
rewrite the division as a multiplication
and it states not to simplify write it as a fraction?
I have no clue but I tried this 1 1/22?
