    It's your turn now, Jab.

    How do you think you can figure out these problems?

    Um. Well I tried this but im not sure:

    A) 113+x= 112
    -113 -113

    B) 87+p= 225
    -87 -87

    C) No idea :{

    A) I don't know how you got your answer, but 112 is right.

    87 + p = 225
    p = 225 - 87
    p = ?

    225 - x = p
    225 = x + p

    On A I did

    113 + x = 225
    X= 225-113
    X= 112

    Thanks so much Ms. Sue. I would have failed this math asignment if it werent for you! I will most likely come back here whenerever I have issues again. Thanks again!
