Question:

You want to make some strawberry-banana smoothies. You have 15 strawberries and 5 bananas. It takes 3 strawberries and 1/2 a banana to make one smoothie. How many strawberry-banana smoothies can you make? What will be left over?

Marne C.
Answer:

Total Strawberries/Strawberries in each smoothie... 15/3 = 5 Total Bananas/Bananas in each smoothie... 5/0.5 = 10 While you have enough bananas to make 10 smoothies, you only have enough strawberries to make 5. So, you can make 5 strawberry-banana smoothies. All the strawberries were used up, so to figure out how many extra bananas you have left, you can do: the total bananas - (the number of bananas required for 5 smoothies)... 5 - (5x0.5)= 2.5. So, there are 2.5 bananas left over.

Question:

Describe one of the major problems that the founding fathers encountered while writing the Declaration of Independence.

Marne C.
Answer:

One of the major problems encountered was a disagreement between the colonies over the continued practice of slavery in the new nation. While multiple founding fathers including John Adams and Thomas Jefferson vehemently opposed slavery, others were adamant it remain or they would not support the declaration. Approval of the Declaration of Independence had to be unanimous among the colonies, so in order to free themselves from Britain, it was agreed that slavery would remain legal.
