    Mr F says: 5 yrs = 364 days (more or less), 1 month = 30 days (more or less). Therefore .....

    Actually, the question is too vague for an exact precise answer in days to be given.



    add 3 yr 7 months + 2 yr 8 months

    Mr F says: there are a total of 5 years and 15 months. And there's 12 months in a year ....


    subtract 5 yr 8 months from 2 yr 5 months

    Mr F says: -3 years and -3 months after the subtraction.

    subtract 67 ft 4 in from 34 ft 2 in

    Mr F says: There are -33 ft and -2 in aftre the subtraction.


    3 km + 3 m + 3 cm + 3mm = ? cm = ? mm = ? m = ? km

    Mr F says: 1 km = 1000, 1 m = 100 cm, 1cm = 10 mm. Therefore .....

    it takes 2 minutes for robin to walk 10 yd. how many hours it will take for robin to walk 6 mile?

    Mr F says: How many yards in a mile? How many yards in 6 miles? Then ..... 2 minutes for 10 yd means 1 minute for 5 yd means 1/5 of a minute for 1 yd. Therefore ....
    Any questions about this, ask in this thread. Don't make a new one.
