• Ferran, el senor pregunta que si Hermione puede levantar un plumaje de aves Treinta y Cinco pies en el aire, y lo levanta Cinco veces mas alto de lo que Ron lo levanta, cuanto mas lo levanta? Bueno la respuesta seria 7, porque cinco multiplcado por siete es treinta y cinco. Buena suerte Ferran con sus estudios.
• I'm am still confused can someone explain this please

:(
• It says that Hermoine can lift the feather 5 times higher than Ron, so you just have to divide 35 by 5 that will give you the answer its 7 because 5 goes into 35 7 times
• can someone explain why they did it in a harder and longer way then just doing it quick and easy you could have just done 7x5 and you would get 35 and you know it would be 7
• because its for basic people
