evan drove into the country for a long weekend. he planned to drive 118 miles on each of 4 days, however his car broke down and he was only able to drive 43 miles on the first day. how many miles per day must he drive to reach his destination.

118 * 4 = 472
(472  43) / 3 = _______ 
143

so it would be 144 cause 47243=429 next you would divide 429 with 3 so 3 goes into 4 one time so put the 3 there then subtract 43=1 then you bring down the 2 and get 12!next thing you do is 3 goes into 12,4 times so you put the 4 next to the 1 and get 14.Your almost done!next thing you do is 3 goes into 14 4 times so you put 12 on the bottom then subtract 1212=0!Then you bring down the 9 and get 09! 3 goes into 9,3 times so you put another 9 below the first 9 then you subtract so it would be 99=0! so 0 left over and the numbers on top would be your answer! Your welcome! :D
