A) I don't know how you got your answer, but 112 is right.

B)

87 + p = 225

p = 225 - 87

p = ?

C)

225 - x = p

225 = x + p

On A I did

113 + x = 225

X= 225-113

X= 112

Thanks so much Ms. Sue. I would have failed this math asignment if it werent for you! I will most likely come back here whenerever I have issues again. Thanks again!
