# Hi... So for this homework question It says " Amy bought 2 and 1/2 gallons of paint for \$60. What is the cost for 1 gallon of paint? " so if you make the 2 and 1/2 improper to 2 and then you make the equation 60/2/1 and flip 2/1 to 1/2 and times those you get 2/2 do that equals 1 whole. Then you go to the top and do 60 times 1/2 and you get 60/120/1 would you put that or do you put something else like 120/1 ?

I'm sorry but the solution you proposed was a bit hard to follow, so I'll just post my solution: we convert "2 and 1/2" to a single fraction:

So, we know that 5/2 gallons cost 60 dollars, which means

To find the cost of a single gallon, we have to solve the equation for g:

April and june bowled together and had a combined score of 425. June's score was 25 less than April's score. find their scores. A=april's score J=June's score

A+J=425
J=A-25
A=? J=?
how do u solve and use the elimination method? thanks

J - A = -25 OVER - J - A = 425

-2A = -450

A = 225

J = 225-25

J = 200
