But i must protest that 1/2 of 30 is 15! Read the way it's written!
30 by half is 15!
30 from half is 60!

1/2=.5 threfore 30 % .5 =15!!
Did I mention the question about the half?

Oh and not all of us know the rules of base ball!

I am smarte dammit!

It says:

Divide 30 by 1/2 and add 10

30 / .5 = 60 + 10 = 70

Will, the instructions were to divide 30 by 1/2, not by 2 (read: go back to remedial math). It's OK, I missed 3 obvious ones also. If one were to just take his/her time, I'm sure most everyone here would ace this phocking test.

When you divide a whole number by a fraction, you multiply the whole number by the denomerator, then divide by the numerator (in other words, flip the fraction upside down). It really is a basic math principle that is taught very early on. You may have just forgot.

Here, just try this: Open the calculator on your PC, and punch in 30 / .5 - what is the answer?
