• SO, according to the video the giraffe is just 2 times taller than shanntanu!
Look: G = 3xS = 18ft tall
G= 18ft tall; S = 6ft tall => G = 2xS taller than S
If the G = 3xS taller than S, the answer would be = 24ft tall!
I think the wording of the question should be like :" The giraffe has 3 times the height..."
• what the heck does that mean
• and what is the point of this agian?
• the point is to use times? I think
• what in the world
• What is a giraff...69!
• but how do i do it?
• so if your multiplying like 1x1=1 because there is only one of it and if its like 2x0=0 because there is none of it
• why are the equations so hard?
• They are not hard, you just dont understand them so you need to get more practice on this.
• Dose E =mc square
