  1. There were 7.6 litres of water in Jacob's bathtub. Then 2.9 litres drained out. How much water is left in the bathtub? 4.7
7.6 - 2.9 = 4.7
(0.7 - 0.2 = 0.5) + (.6 - .9 = 0.3)  

  1. A carpenter bought a piece of wood that was 6.15 meters long. Then he sawed 2.14 meters off the end. How long is the piece of wood now? 4.01
6.15 - 2.14 = 4.01
(60 - 20 = 40) + (0.1 - 0.1 = 0) + (.5 - .4 = .1)

  1. A chef bought 4.2 kilograms of almonds and 7.8 kilograms of pecans. How many kilograms of nuts did the chef buy in all? 12
4.2 + 7.8 = 12
(40 + 70 = 110) + (0.2 + 0.8 = 1)

  1. It snowed 8.9 inches on Monday and 3.9 inches on Tuesday. How much did it snow on Monday and Tuesday combined? 12.8
8.9 + 3.9 = 12.8
(80 + 30 = 110) + (0.9 + 0.9 = 1.8)

  1. It rained 0.97 cm on Monday. On Tuesday, it rained 0.4 cm less than on Monday. How much did it rain on Tuesday? READ CAREFULLY-THIS ONE WILL TRY AND TRICK YOU!  1.05

0.97 - 0.4 = 1.05
(0 - 0 = 0) + (0.9 - 0.4 = 0.5) + .7

How to have a fun weekend

Are you sitting on your couch by yourself,  playing the game by yourself well, I am here to show you how to have fun in the weekend.

The first way by having a fun weekend is to bring a friend over for the night. Having your friends over is very cool. Because you can play the game, have water fights and more.

Having your friends can make your week awesome.

Another way by having a fun weekend is to eat junk food and watch movies. But don't forget to have a work out the next day. OR ELSE! Dun dun dunnnnnn.

And the last way in having a fun weekend is to spend time with your family. Spending time with your family will help you bond and get to know each other better.

I have learnt that if you bring a friend over it will always be fun and that is how you have a fun weekend.

Why do we drink water.

People have believed that drinking water can only make people hydrated but that's not the only thing.  There is more things water can do.

Dehydration can cause lots of drama. People have been getting tired, Getting some cancer and even headaches. Well to keep away from getting all of those things you need to drink more water so it keeps you hydrated.

Drinking water can clean your insides. If you drink water the water will clean all the waste inside your body so it can stay clean and healthy. If you don't drink water you will die because your insides are not clean and because of dyhatrasion.

So why do we drink water?
Is water important?

Well if you don’t drink water, you will die. It's that important. Depending on our environment. We can live only a few days without water but at least a week. We can live much longer without food but not water. For most of us, we should set up the drinking of water far more than we currently do.

Did you know that drinking water can help you improve your modes when you are angry.
