Shore world

High school math revisited:

5 liters of water are poured from tank A into tank B. 10 liters of water were then poured from tank A into tank C. If tank A originally had 10 more liters of water than tank C, how many more liters of water does tank C now have than tank A?
a)0 b)5 c)10 d)15 e)20 Answer below.

Spending a week on the east coast, courtesy of a cousin and her home there. Two shots from the area. Schools here are back in session already so it's really a quieter week because most family vacations are over.

Don't miss on our community site the story and link to our local newspaper that published an article on three local communities and their experience with the LCWR visitation and assembly earlier this month.




The answer is d)15. If you didn't get it, one way is to start with sample numbers and the last sentence, "If tank A originally had 10 more liters of water than tank C..." Let A have 100 and C 90 at the beginning. Now read the first two sentences and do what they say.
