Why do you think I chose 6?Step 2- 6 3=22+3=55x3=1515-3=12

12 is our magic #Step 366+6=126-6=03(6)=183(6)+6=24ACT MATH-Plug-In Contd

1. r= 10 robots2. She needs 2 pieces of wire per robot, thats 20 pieces.Each piece is 9 feet, thats 9x20= 180 feet180 feet is 180 3 = 60 yards of wireThe wire roll is 500, so 500-60= 440 yds left on the roll.440 is our magic numberACT MATH-Plug-In Contd

Step 3-500 - 1/6(10)= 500 -1.67 = 498.333

500-1/3(10)= 500-3.333= 496.667

500 - 2(10) = 500 - 20 = 480500 6(10) = 500 60 = 440500 9(10) = 500 90 = 410
