Question:

Matt has 5 times as many books as Lisa. Together, Matt and Lisa have 30 books. How many books does Matt have?

Allison W.
Answer:

Matt has 25 books. In order to solve this comparison problem, you need to set it up as an algebraic equation. Lisa has an unknown amount of books, which I represent as x. Matt has 5 times as many books, which I represent as 5x. Together, Matt and Lisa have 30 books, so 5x + x = 30. Then, I can solve for x because I know that 5x + x = 6x, and 6x = 30. I can divide both sides by 6 to find that x = 5. Lisa has 5 books. Since Matt has 5 times as many, I know that he has 25 books.

Question:

What are the characteristics of a fable?

Allison W.
Answer:

A fable is a short, fictitious story that teaches a lesson. It typically uses animals as the main characters. These characters have human characteristics, and they face human problems. A fable introduces characters in a setting, develop a problem, and solve it in the end, thus teaching a moral lesson that humans can apply to their own lives.
