Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Situation A: The hang glider descended 33.57 feet and again ascended 14.98. So 33.57 – 14.98 = 18.58. So now the hang glider is at 18.58 feetSituation B: Initially they gained 7 2/5 yards and then lost 3/5 yards.7 2/5 yards can be written as 37/5. As they lost 3/5 yards, 37/5 – 3/5 = 34/5. So the remaining yards are 34/5 yards.Situation C: Hiker walked 3 1/6 miles and then 2 1/2 miles. So the total distance is 3 1/6 + 2 1/2 = 5 4/6 miles.Situation D: Total amount earned is $23.66 + $15.84 = $39.5.
