My name is Jonathan and I am a grade 6 student. My question is: what 2 numbers would multiply 17 and 19 for a total of 1000. The numbers should not contain any decimal. Hi Jonathan,I divided 17 into 1000 to and got 58.8 so 58 times 17 is not quite 1000. In fact 58 x 17 = 986 which 14 less than 1000. Thus But 19 is 2 more than 17 so if I replace one of the 17's by a 19 I will increase the total by 2. That is I need to do this 7 times since 14 is 7 times 2. Thus Check it. Make sure the arithmetic is correct. Now can you do this one? What 2 numbers would multiply 13 and 15 for a total of 1000? Cheers,Penny
