Length 40391

The wheels are stuck in the water. 40 cm is in the ground, 2/3 of the length is in the water, and 1/5 of the length is above the water. How long is the wheel, how many cm is in the water, and how much is above the water?

Correct answer:

x =  300 cm
a =  200 cm
b =  60 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

40+2/3 x+1/5 x=x  40+2/3 x+1/5 x=x  2x=600  x=2600=300  x=300=300 cm
a=32 x=32 300=32 300=3600=200 cm
b=51 x=51 300=51 300=5300=60 cm
