Hey guys sorry mine was late

Mr.B assigned me question number 19

QUESTION:
19. A company made a profit of \$8.6 million on its first year. It lost \$5.9 million on its second year and lost another \$6.3 million ont ist third year.

a) What was the average profit or loss per year over the first three years?

b) The company broke even over over the first four years What was its loss or profit in the fourth year.

a) What was the average profit or loss per year over the first three years?

To get the answer first you need to subtract 8.6 to 5.9, then you will get the answer of 2.7 the subtract another 6.3 then you will get the answer of -3.6, because it says avareage you need to devide it by three because its the first three years, so you will get the answer of -1.2 or loss of \$1.2 million per year

The only difference is that subtracting it instead of adding it bacause it says loosing money per year.

b)The company broke even over over the first four years What was its loss or profit in the fourth year.

The answer is a profit of 3.6 per year

There you go guys hope you understand my answer please leave a cooment and please tell me if i did somethng wrong or if i forgot somthing

Good Job Christian ! But I have to agree with Melissa, it is kind of confusing. Maybe you can try to explain it more. I know it's hard to put it in words and to explain but try because it's better like that (: I like your use of color and your pictures. Especially your skittled sign to COMMENT :D Good job again though.

Great job Christian! I like the use of color and you explained how you got question a vey clearly. Thought I think you could have highlighted the key terms in the green area. You also should have explained how you got the answer for b and you had some grammer erors. But good job for getting creative with the "please comment" sign. :)

Excellent work Christian! Good amount of colours, you explained the question A very well, but I don't really understand how you got question B. I think you should also add a ending sentence to clarify the answer for the questions because they are word problems.
