Here is the answer:
Daisy did 2/5ths or %40 of the barn in those two days as she can do the whole lot in 5 days she did 2/5ths or %40 in 2 days so thats %40 of the barn done.
Didith did 2/8ths or %25 of the barn in those two days, 
so the amount of barn painted in the first two days is: 1/4 + 2/5 which equals %65 of the barn complete in the first two days. so there is %35 of the barn left to paint and only Daisy (who can paint %20 of the barn in one day) 
so to figure out how many days it takes Daisy to paint %35 of the barn this is what to do:
%20 = 1day %35 - %20 = %15 5x5x5x5 = 20 5x5x5 = 15 therefore it takes Daisy 1/4 of a day to paint %5 of the barn therefore it takes Daisy 3/4 of a day to paint %15 of the barn (i hope you are following me here!) 1 + 3/4 = one and three quarters of a day
Therefore it took Daisy one and three quarter days to paint the remaining %35 of the barn.
So it took Days one and three quarter days to finish the job after Didith left.
Hope this is helpful

How do you work a mean problem in math


Easy peasy. Add up all the values, then divide by how many values you had. So the average of 3, 7, 8, 12, 2, 4, 19, 5 is

(3+7+8+12+2+4+19+5) / 8 = 60 / 8 = 7.5

2 1/5 times 2 2/3


2 1/5= 11/5
2 2/3 =8/3
(2 1/5)*(2 2/3)=(11/5)*(8/3)=(11*8)/(5*3)=88/15

Find two numbers such that the sum of the first and three times the second is 5 and the sum of the second and 2 times the first is 8


Let the two numbers be X and Y:
X + 3Y = 5
2X + Y = 8

Rewrite the second equation to Y = 8 - 2X and substitute in first equation:
X + 3(8-2X) = 5
X + 24 - 6X = 5
-5X + 24 = 5
-5X = 5 - 24
-5X = -19
X = 19/5 = 3.8
Y = 8 - 2(3.8) = 8 - 7.6 = 0.4

Check: 3.8 + 3(0.4) = 3.8 + 1.2 = 5
2(3.8) + .4 = 7.6 + 0.4 = 8

2+3=8 3+7=27 4+5=32 5+8=60 6+7=72 then 7+8 =?


The answer is 98:
2 + 3 = 2 * ( 2 + 3 ) - 2 = 8
3 + 7 = 3 * ( 3 + 7 ) - 3 = 27
4 + 5 = 4 * ( 4 + 5 ) - 4 = 32
5 + 8 = 5 * ( 5 + 8 ) - 5 = 60
6 + 7 = 6 * ( 6 + 7 ) - 6 = 72
7 + 8 = 7 * ( 7 + 8 ) - 7 = 98

Foil Method 2(3x-4)(4x+5)


Hello,
You have the method: apply it.
2 *(3x-4)(4x+5) =(6x-8)(4x+5)
Now apply the FOIL method
F: 6x*4x=24x^2
O: 6x*5=30x
I; -8*4x=-32x
L: -8*5=-40

so the result is
24x^2 + 30x-32x -40 =24x^2 -2x-40

What is the difference between 8 and -9


Hello,
8-(-9)=8+9= 17.

Suppose you have a temperature of -9 degrees outside and 8 (in fact +8) degrees in you home. What is the difference of temperature between the inside and the outside.
Starting from the -9 deg mark, you move up the scale counting the number of degree marks until you reach +8 degrees.
Each time you see a degree mark you add one
-9 Does not count, it is the starting point.
-8 Count 1
-7 2
-6 3
-5 4
-4 5
-3 6
-2 7
-1 8
0 9
+1 10
+2 11
..


+8 17

Hope it helps.

8y-4(5-6y)+20 distributive property


Hello,
You are talking of the distributivity of multiplication with respect to the addition or subtraction. The only term where you have multiplication and addition/subtraction is the one with parentheses because
4(5-6y) = 4*(5-6y). * means multiply by

Distributing the product consists in removing CORRECTLY the parentheses.
I consider the term alone
4*(5-6y) = 4*5 +4*(-6y)= 20 -4*6*y = 20 -24*y
You put this result in a package and replace it where it was it the original expression.
So
8*y -(package) +20= Replace package
8*y -(20-24*y)+20 = 8*y -20 -(-24y) + 20 Remember -*(-) = +
8*y -20 +24*y +20= Remember -20+20 =0
8*y -20 +20 +24*y= Addition is commutative
8*y +24*y = 32*y
Let y be an orange 8 oranges + 24 oranges =32 oranges.Coclusion
8y-4(5-8y)+20 = 32y
