If we don't put in some brackets, we will be forced to calculate 700 divided by 2, which equals 350. 2200 - 350 does NOT equal 1500. It equals 1850 doesn't it?

Hi Chelsea we don't quite get it your way but this way is probably faster and easier, so make 2.2 into 2200 grams take away 700 grams which leave us with 1500 and divide it by 2 which = 750

Chelsea your strategy is very good but I don't think is correct because you forgot to use "BEDMAS." I think this is the correct answer, make 2.2 kg into 2200 then 700 divided by 2=350 and 2200 minus 350=1850

I'm stuck on finding out strategies to prove my answer is correct. I think that there is 750 grams left.

ReplyDeleteChelsea-2.2 kilograms=2200grams minus 700 divided by two= 750 grams

I think that it's 750 through another way by taking away 700g from 2200kg and it will equal 1500 and then you divide it by 2 which equals 750.

DeleteYes sorry. I just went with the flow on the question. Now I can remember to use BEDMAS

Deleteminus 700 divided by two. Did you need to use some brackets? If so where did you place them?

ReplyDeleteI'm not really sure where I would put the brackets. Can you please help me of where to put them?

DeleteWhat was the equation that you used?

DeleteWe agree, we are are stuck to but we think the answer is.....2.2 kg take off 700 grams,1.5 kg dividing 2 is 750

Do you find it easy to work with Kg and g in the same problem? I always have to change everything to Kg or g.

DeleteYes I have to do the same thing. I find it difficult to work with both of them at the same time

Yes that's what I did but I converted 2.2 kilograms into grams. Nice strategie :)

DeleteThanks Tyla

DeleteWe really found it easier to understand your

way of thinking.

DeleteSo, there is 2.2kg.

ReplyDeleteHold up, before we go on, don't we have to know how much 700g weighs?

By: Jasmine, Brooke and Ramona:)

Yes. I think that it is easier to convert 2.2kg into grams so you can just subtract 700g

Delete700g weighs 700g!

DeleteYes I know. It obvious isn't it?

DeleteAll of this is confusing to me,but I will try my best

ReplyDeleteI recon to solve my answer is BEDMAS my answer is 1150 because half of 700 is 350 so 2200-350=1850 then take away 700 from 1850=1150

ReplyDeleteummmm, my way to solve this answer is to use are strategy named "BEDMAS" so divide 700 that is 350 so 2200-350 is 1850.

ReplyDeleteWe say 2.2 is the same as 1000g. Mum uses 700g, so we have 300g left. 300÷2=150g.

ReplyDeleteSo our answer is 150g

How is 2.2 the same as 1000g?
