  1. 1. find what percentage of the trip Keith drove, then his wife must have driven the remaining percentage

    2.
    1.5J = (1/2)K
    3J = K
    divide by K
    3J/K = 1
    divide by 3
    J/K = 1/3

    3. with radius r, area = πr^2
    reduce radius by 10% ---> new radius = .9r
    new area = π(.9r)^2 = .81π
    decrease = .19π
    .19π/π = .19 or 19%
