So a picture appeared on FB asking for the answer to the picture below, to which many people responded "14".
Everywhere I looked, people answered 14. However, I stood out because I was the only one who said that the answer is 11.25.
The problem can be represented algebraically like this:
4x = 5
x = 1.25
9x = ?
9(1.25) = 11.25
So my question is..how the heck did people get 14? Am I using the wrong approach?
