On Tuesday 1.2 inches of rain fell. Two more inches of rain fell the next day. How many inches of rain fell on Wednesday?
I don't know what to do

The question is ambiguous. Taking the simple statement that two more inches fell on Wednesday, then then the answer is 2 inches.
Or 
1.2 + 2 = 3.2 inches

But in the question does it already give the answer? It said 2 inches of rain fell the next day. Then it said how many inches of rain fell on wednesday?
So its 2?

Wednesday is the next day after Tuesday.

I know. So I think its 2 cause it doesnt say anything about adding
