**Bekah**, Tuesday, September 27, 2011 at 2:08pmStep 1: Eric = 1/2 of Dans; Eric + Dan = 18

Step 2: 12 + 6 = 18

Step 3: Eric has to be 6 because half of 12 is 6 and when you add them together you 18.

Step 4: Equation- Part A: D = 12; E = 1/2D; T= 18.

Equation- Part B: E + D = T

so... 1/2D + D = 18!!!!

enjoy!
