In 1857, a British expedition led by Richard Burton and John Speke set out to find the great lakes shown on Ptolemy's map. After reaching Lake Tanganyika, the two men split up because Burton was ill.
"Who should teach children about personal finance? Ideally, it would be the child's parent or guardian. However, many adults do not have the knowledge necessary to teach such concepts. This is evident by the staggering amount of credit card debt in the United States and the astounding number of adults who claim they cannot balance their own checkbook. Many argue that schools must step in and teach personal finance. Adding this requirement to the compulsory curriculum would require that more teachers be hired, which many school districts cannot afford, and would increase the credit requirement for graduation."

What is your question?
How to paraphrase these these paragraphs
In 1857 Richard Burton and John Speke looked for the great lakes on Ptolemy's map.
I'll be glad to check your paraphrase of the second paragraph.
Children should be taught about personal finance, whether it is from parents, guardians, or teachers. This way they would not end up with a large amount of credit card debt.
Good. Does your teacher expect a longer paraphrase?
I think that will be fine. Thank you so much.
You're very welcome.
