2001 white storks = g

2002 white storks = g/2

2003 white storks = g/2 - 45

A.) g/2 - 45

B.) g/2 - 45

Substitute 1800 to g

= 1800/2 - 45

= if not same denominator, you must multiply whole number to denominator then add to numerator then divide back to the denominator. Like this:

= 45 x 2

= 100

= 100 + 1800

= 1900

= 1900/2

= 950

There are 950 white storks migrating in 2003.
