Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from georgia, a student:

1)You are driving to town 15 miles away. If you have already driven 3 1/4 miles, how far away is the town?

Hi Georgia,

Let me ask the same question with different units. You go to the store with fifteen dollars and you spend three and a quarter. How much do you have left?
