5+n. I got my answer because the problem said that Lillith already completed 5 and then she completed some more. It never told you how many more she completed.

5+n=n I got my answer by taking the only number in the problem, and then I used a varriable to show the numbers that are unknown!

Mr. Travers wanted to figure out how many goals he averaged per game for his soccer season. Mr. Travers scored 14 goals in 8 games. How many goals does he score per game?

Alexis, how do you find the average of something? Think "mean"

Still, have no clue.

To find average or mean you need to add up all the scores and divide by the number of scores. EX. If you took your test scores of 95, 90, 100, 98, and 92. Then added them and got 475 and divided by 5 (# of tests) you would get your average or mean of 95. How about now??? Can you get an answer?

New Question: Kate got 16 out of 20 questions correct on a test. She wanted to know what percent that would be, but she remembered in math she had to start with the fraction, change it to a decimal, then move the decimal to get the percent. What fraction, decimal, and percent would she have?

16/20 then you divide 16/20 and then it wont go in so you add a zero to the 16 then it will go in so then you get 0.8. then you multiply 0.8 times 100 and you get 80 percent and that is your answer .

The answer is 5+n because Lilith answered 5 math questions and then wanted to do some more. So the teacher provided them. The answer is 5+n because the n stands for the unknown number. So in this case Lillith answered 5 math questions and then did more but the number oof how many more she did was and is unknown.

Given a regular pentagon with one side measuring 7 cm, find the perimeter of the shape by showing your work two different ways.

Mr. Travers yesterday I was walking to the store and I saw my step cousin Aalayah driving in a car and she got out and then she came up to me and she asked me if she could sleep over and I called my mom and asked her if its ok and she said 'yes'. And I was happy.

Hi Mr. Travers. Two days ago I was so sad, that we didnt have any math, beacuse I love math and that, marth was really easy for me. Sometimes I am a super worker at math, but then sometimes I am not.
