after diving 93m below sea level, a diver rises at a rate of 6 meters per minute for 8 minutes. where is the diver in relation to the surface?
i can't figure this one out
6x8=72
72 + 93= 165
but this still doesn't look right at all!!!!!!!!

Nope, it isn't right.
To begin, 6 times 8 = 42
Visualize the diver going down 93 meters.
Then he comes back up 42 meters.
You can't add these together. What do you think you should do with these numbers? 
Hi Ms.Sue,
I would subtract 9342= 50 
Oops  neither one of us checked MY math. I had a typo in my multiplication.
6 * 8 = 48
93  48 = 45 meters below the surface 
lol I came back just now to type about that.
also this problem has me lost
rewrite the division as a multiplication
22/24= 22x?
and it states not to simplify write it as a fraction?
I have no clue but I tried this 1 1/22?
