answer: she can buy 5 goldfish.
step-by-step explanation: if you divide the amount of money she has to spend by the cost of the goldfish;
$11/5 = 5.5
since she can’t buy 5 and a half goldfish, she can only buy 5.
hello from mrbilldoesmath!
the first marker is labeled 208708; the second (consecutive) one 208709
call the first mile marker "m". then
m + (m+1) = 417417 => combine like terms
2m + 1 = 417417 => subtract 1 from both sides
2m = 417416 => divide both sides by 2
m = 417416/2 = 208708
note: m and (m+1) are consecutive as they immediately follow each other in the set of integers.
the answer has to be 50
