Nope sorry ur wrong

My dad, the nationally accredited math teacher says....

*drumroll*

Major Payne is correct.

The sequence S30=1(1-230)/1-2

Simplifies to S30=230-1=1,073,741,824 PENNIES divided by 100 = \$10,737,418.23

So there!

I will always bow to the knowledge of a nationally accredited math teacher! Especially when they agree with me. Kudos to your dad for settling this.

"Stopping along the trail to rest, Judy saw that one-third of the rest of the group from the Girl Scouts was behind her and three-fourths were ahead. Not counting Judy, what was the total number in her group?"

Just a guess:

If one-third is behind her and three-fourths is ahead of her than that means that she has more than one full group of girl scouts with her...

13?

It can't be 13 because if 1/3 of the group is behind her that means that there are 4.33 girl scouts behind Judy..
That would be an odd sight...

It can if you add Judy and that makes 14. But riddle was to not count her. Fuzzy math always works.

I am taken from a mine, and shut up in a wooden case, from which I am never released, and yet I am used by almost everybody.
