6. The answer is 2335 4/5 because 2540*23 = 58420 so you divided the quotient by 25 and you will get 2335 20/25 then simply it by 5 and you get 2335 4/5.

16. The real answer is 2336 4/5. The reason of this is when you 23/25 x 2,540= 58,420/25. After you got this answer you would take it and divide it by 25 which would give you 2336.8 which is equal to 2336 8/10. With this anwer you know to take 8/10 and simplify it to 4/5 Your answer should now be 2336 4/5. This is now your final answer.

22. When is this ever gonna matter at all no guy is gonna randomly ask you if the Missouri River is 2540 miles long and the Mississippi River is 23/25 of that length then what is the length of the Mississippi River and technically the correct answer is 2,320 miles but what I don’t care anymore

23. Key terms: Whenever a word math problem has "is", its means equal to, "=". When you see the word "of", it means multiply, "* or x".

The Mississipi River is (=) 23/25 of (x or *) Missouri River.

Mississipi River = 23/25 x Missouri River

Since they say Missouri River is (remember "is" means equal) 2,540. Missouri River= 2540

Mississipi River= 23/25 x 2,540

If your teacher wants fractions, then simply turn 2540 into 2540/1. 2540 divided by 1 is still 2540. It's still a fraction and it makes sense too!

Then you do the following steps of PEMDAS

1) Multiply Across since its fractions
Mississipi River= 23/25 x 2,540/1
23* 2540 and 25* 1

Mississipi River= 58,420/25

2) After you multiply, then divide

Mississipi River= 2,336.8

TA-DA!
