Ms. Sue,
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

Jab,
On A I did
113 + x = 225
X= 225113
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!
