Can someone please let me know what I am doing wrong here:
2 C = 3 S & 3S = 4P
thus 2C = 4P or P = C/2
if P=18, C should be 36 isn't it?
In a certain game, the units of currency of 3 countries are the crown, shield and the pound, respectively. If 2 crowns equal 3 shields and 3 shields equal 4 pounds, how many crowns equal 18 pounds?
Would you explain this question please? Thank you for your help!
ask yourself a logical question...if 3S= 4P..shouldnt there be less Shilling out of 18Pounds?
i mean the ratio says there fewer shillings for more pounds..similarly there are fewer crwons for more shillings ..then how can there be more crowns from 18 pounds..has to be less..
i did the same mistake as you when setting up..and then when i asked myself the logical question..it became clear
