24 x 4 = 48/12 = 4

**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 7:14pmNo. That answer doesn't make any sense. The length must be a lot longer than 12 in.

- Math 8 - HELP!!!!! (question) -
**Laruen**, Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 7:45pmwhy can you just multiply 3/4 and 10 to get the answer?

why 3/4 * 8 = 24/4 = 6...?? - Math 8 - HELP!!!!! -
**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 7:54pmBecause you've reduced the size to 3/4 of its original size.
