When do you use a semicolon?
Semicolons are used to connect closely related thoughts and/or ideas when something stronger than a comma is needed. The can be placed between 2 independent clauses (basically sentences that stand alone), used with commas to create clear lists. If semicolons are overused in a work, they lose their effectiveness. Therefore, try them wisely. Here is a link to additional information and study about the use of semicolons: https://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/Semicolons.html

A farmer sold twice as many apples in the afternoon than in the morning. If she sold 360 kilograms of apples that day, how many kilograms did she sell in the morning and how many in the afternoon?
Solution: Let x be the number of kilograms the farmer sold in the morning. Then in the afternoon, she sold 2x. So, the total is x+2x=3x. This must be equal to 360, so 3x=360. 360 divided by 3 equals 120. Therefore, the farmer sold 120 kg in the morning (x) and 240 kg in the afternoon (2x).
