Boris has

**2****1/2 times**as much cash as Anna.Charlie has

**3/4**as much cash as Anna, Anna has**$25.60**in cash.**a)**How much cash do the three people have

**altogether**?

**b)**How much

**more**cash does Boris have than Charlie?

**a)**First I converted the fractions into decimals..

Then I multiplied the decimal numbers by the amount of Anna's cash (25.60)

After I added my answers with Anna's amount of cash.

**b)**For this question I just subtracted the amount of cash Charlie had by the amount of cash Boris had.

Great job Ana! I love your pictures, they were clear and I like the colours you used to signify which money was Boris' and which was Charlie's. I also like how you used colour for the important words. Next time, you should explain how you got 5÷2 = 2.5 and also with the other conversion. Also, you should explain why you multiplied the decimals by Anna's amount of cash. Otherwise, it was a great post! Keep it up! :)
