can someone correct this for me.
If the company shipped a total of 550 items last month, how many were shipped using second-day airfreight?
(If second day freight is 40%,Next day frieght is 15%,and Truck is 45%)

My answer:
550 items shipped – 40% second day airfreight = 220 items were shipped using second-day
airfreight.




That is correct. They provide you with more information than you need to answer the question. That is probably an effort to prepare you for the "real world" but can make math a bit harder to learn. The methods and fashions of math teaching are always changing, and not always for the better.
