Answers

  1. Answer:
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Plant B is taller than Plant C.  
    We need to determine by how much.  
    To do this, we divide 6 2/3 inches by 4 4/15 inches.  
    The LCD is 15, and so we have: 5/4
    Plant B is 1 and 1/4 times taller than Plant C.  
    This can be restated as Plant C is four-fifths as tall as Plant B.Plant C is shorter than Plant B, as we saw earlier.  
    The difference is found through subtraction:  100/15 – 64/15 = 36/15 inches = 12/5 inches shorter, or 2 2/5 inches shorter
