Marvin

Marvin buys a hose that is 27 ¾ feet long. He already owns a hose at home that is ⅔ the length of the new hose. How many total yards of hose does Marvin have now?

Correct result:

x =  15.4167 yd

Solution:

a=2734=27 4+34=1114=27.75 ft b=23 a=23 27.75=372=18 12=18.5 ft  c=a+b=27.75+18.5=1854=46 14=46.25 ft  x=c yd=c/3  yd=46.25/3  yd=15.417 yd=15.4167 yd
