Faith earned 1/3 of her allowance from washing the dishes and 1/6 of her allowance from cleaning her room. How much of Faith \$36 allowance was not earned from washing the dishes or cleaning room?

• MATh -

1/6=\$6
1/3=\$12=
\$18-\$36=
\$18 or 1/2

First find out how much of her allowance she earned washing dishes and cleaning her room:

(1/3)+(1/6) (Find LCD)
=(2/6)+(1/6)
=3/6
=1/2

So if 1/2 of her allowance is earned washing dishes and cleaning her room, then the other 1/2 of her allowance is earned doing other things. So:

(1/2)(36)=\$13.00

Sorry, hit the wrong key:

(1/2)(36)=\$18.00
