1. x=5 - x
------ +1 The dashed line is divide. so x=5-x divided by 2 and there is a 1 added 2 on next to it. I think its 2.3 recurring, my sister thinks its 2 who is right or are both of us wrong?

If you wouldnt mind would you mind telling me if the answer to this question is 9 or not.A piece of card, 7 cm by 11 cm, has a square hole cut out of it. A second piece of card 8cm by 13cm, has four
square holes, the same size as the first, cut out of it. The area of card left is the same in each case.What is the side length of the hole?
