we can solve by using the cross product rule:
send the decimals so i can !
objects smaller than a piece of paper can be measured with a meter stick because anything smaller than a piece of paper can be measured with centimeters or millimeters.
each friend receives 41 marbles, wayne has 180 marbles left.
wayne starts with 303 marbles total. if he decides to give 123 of his marbles away to his friends, we can subtract this amount from his total to get how many he has left:
303 - 123 = 180 marbles left
we also want to know how many marbles each of his three friends receives. since he wants to split them equally, we need to divide the number he is giving away by 3:
123 ÷ 3 = 41 marbles a piece to each friend
