Turtles 2

A box turtle hibernates in the sand at 11 5/8. A spotted turtle hibernates at 11 16/25 feet. Which turtle is deeper?

Result

x =  2

Solution:

a=11+58=938=11.625 ft b=11+1625=29125=11.64 ft  b>a x=2a=11 + \dfrac{ 5 }{ 8 }=\dfrac{ 93 }{ 8 }=11.625 \ \text{ft} \ \\ b=11 + \dfrac{ 16 }{ 25 }=\dfrac{ 291 }{ 25 }=11.64 \ \text{ft} \ \\ \ \\ b>a \ \\ x=2
