Assume 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters.
(numbers in clues are rounded to the nearest hundredth)
- Boston and Winnipeg had a total accumulation of thirty-six and thirty-two hundredths centimeters.
- New York and Winnipeg had a total accumulation of thirty-three and seventy-eight hundredths centimeters.
- Winnipeg had two times more snow than Toronto.
- New York and Toronto had a total accumulation of ten and fifteen hundredths inches.
Still rounding things to the nearest hundredth:ReplyDelete
New York = 17.78 cm
Winnipeg = 16.00 cm
Boston = 20.32 cm
Toronto = 8.00cm
From the question we get the following equations:ReplyDelete
N+T=25.78 (Converted Inches to Centimeters)
Subsitute eq 4 in Eq. 2, we get
Solve the above eq with eq. 3, we get
As usual, you impress me with the answers you give. I can't add anything else to your explanation.ReplyDelete
