Homework Help: math

Posted by Malena on Tuesday, February 1, 2011 at 8:55pm.

I am so bad at word problems! Help me find out how to figure this one out.

1/5 of the boys are absent and 2/5 of the girls are absent in Drewís class. Bert thinks that you multiply, so his answer is 2/5 of the class are out. Elmo thinks that means 3/5 of the class is out. Ernie thinks 3/10 of the class is out. Kermit didnít find out how much of the class are out, but he thinks the answer is between 1/5 and 2/5. Analyze each personís answer to find out who is right. Then determine who knows the most math.
