Division and units 2015-09-08
From Kenneth:
Hello:

Would there be a reason to divide a number without units by another number with units? Here is an example:

35 divided by $5.00 or 35/$5.00

The answer cannot have units ($) because $5 X 7 does not equal 35 but instead $35.00.

$35.00 divided by 5 or ($35.00/5) and $35 divided by $5.00 or ($35.00/$5.00) make more sense.

I thank you for your reply.

Express 13 mills as a decimal part of $1.00. 2009-03-13
From Kenneth:
Hello:

I read the following in an old business mathematics textbook: "Express 13 mills as a decimal part of $1.00."

I can determine the answer as follows: There are 1000 mills in or per $1.00. 13 mills divided by 1000 mills/$1.00 equals $0.013, the answer.

My question is as follows: What does "...as a decimal part of $1.00" indicate or represent from "Express 13 mills as a decimal part of $1.00."?

Is (a decimal part of $1.00) any decimal less than $1.00 with the decimal having a dollar sign before it.

I thank you for your reply.

Express the answer in dollars 2005-01-03
From Abraham:
My question on this question is if I wrote just 5280 because they say they want it in dollars, is that correct or is the only answer, 5279.61 as their answer key says? How should I have known to give it with cents? Should I give myself full credit?

Division with and without units 2004-09-17
From Kenneth:
What does it indicate when the divisor has units (dollars) but not the dividend, as in 500/$10.00 or 500 is divided by $10.00? Are the units understood to be there? Does 500/$10.00 make sense?

Where is the other $1? 2001-06-05
From Samantha:
3 people go to a motel. The room is $30. They split it $10 each. While in the room the Mgr. tells the clerk the room was only $25, so he gives her $5 to take back to the 3 people. On the way she cant decide how to split the $5 between the three people so she puts $2 in her pocket and gives them $1 each.....Therefore, the room now only cost the three people $9 each, which is $27 plus the $2 the clerk pocketed,making a total of $29.....Where is the other $1?

The Bellhop Problem 1999-08-29
From Gerard O'Neill:
Three fellows going to a Math Conference book into a motel. "That will be $30.00" says the bellhop. Each fellow gives $10.00 and they go off to their room. The manager enters and says "That was a $25.00 room. Go and give them $5.00 back."
The bellhop heads off but thinks....."how am I going to split $5.00 between 3 fellows? Hey I will keep two dollars and give each guy a dollar." He does just that.......each fellow now paid $9.00 and the bellhop kept two. 3 X 9= 27 plus the bellhops two = $29.00 Where is the missing dollar?
