The answer is 2335 4/5 because 2540*23 = 58420 so you divided the quotient by 25 and you will get 2335 20/25 then simply it by 5 and you get 2335 4/5.

The real answer is 2336 4/5. The reason of this is when you 23/25 x 2,540= 58,420/25. After you got this answer you would take it and divide it by 25 which would give you 2336.8 which is equal to 2336 8/10. With this anwer you know to take 8/10 and simplify it to 4/5 Your answer should now be 2336 4/5. This is now your final answer.

Key terms: Whenever a word math problem has "is", its means equal to, "=". When you see the word "of", it means multiply, "* or x".

The Mississipi River is (=) 23/25 of (x or *) Missouri River.

Mississipi River = 23/25 x Missouri River

Since they say Missouri River is (remember "is" means equal) 2,540. Missouri River= 2540

Mississipi River= 23/25 x 2,540

If your teacher wants fractions, then simply turn 2540 into 2540/1. 2540 divided by 1 is still 2540. It's still a fraction and it makes sense too!

Then you do the following steps of PEMDAS

1) Multiply Across since its fractions
Mississipi River= 23/25 x 2,540/1
23* 2540 and 25* 1

Mississipi River= 58,420/25

2) After you multiply, then divide

Mississipi River= 2,336.8

TA-DA!
