Hi im Sianny!
I know that 3/4 of 10 = 7.50
But when I have been doing similiar sums I use a method e.g. 3/4 of 12 = 9
I simply divided the 4 into 12 and multiplied the top by this answer. It works with lots of these sums but not with 3/4 of ten. Why and what am i doing wrong.
I thought this method could be used with all these sums.6 AnswersMathematics3 years ago

It was my birthday last February and an older relative, who I don't see very often, gave my husband's sister some money in a card for me. Despite asking for it for the last 10 months on and off. I haven't received the card. I don't get on with my sister in law and I think this was done out of spite (she could have put it in the post or given it to another relative to drop off). Then, my husband asked for it on a visit recently, he was handed a blank envelope with money inside. It was clear that my sister in law had "borrowed"the money and just put it back (without the card) out of panic when my husband wanted it. The strange thing is, my husband thinks it's ok that she did this! He said maybe she needed the money and I'm being too harsh. They are certainly not poor and I find it morally wrong that she could do that. What are other people's opinion about keeping the card for ten months and then finally giving it to me like this? My husband says I'm over-reacting but theft is never a good thing in my book. The sister in law has said nothing and my husband hasn't challenged her at all. Nothing has been said except, "Here's the money".6 AnswersFamily6 years ago
My son is 5 and doesn't want to go to school anymore. There's a boy in his class with diffcult behaviour issues who hits, punches and threatens him. This has been going on for some time. This has affected my own son's behaviour and now he hits and pushes other children in his class. I think this is because he feels scared. We have complained to the school and requested that they are kept apart. There are also several classroom weakness that contribute to the problem - lack of supervision (my son received a nasty bump on the head and the teacher knew nothing about it nor did she tell us - I had to ask!), boredom and lack of stimulation in the classroom as well as a lack of praise for good behaviour. When we went to parents evening last night, the headteacher just wanted to defend his staff although I did get him to say the injury was not acceptable and that a good behaviour chart was ignored most of the time. I got the impression that he wasn't really listening and just wanted to skip to "solutions"not listen to the They will not move the other child into another class and suggested that my son "make friends "with the bully". I feel that the teachers ignore our wishes and are very pushy in trying to get their own way (they insisted my son at one point needed help with his language but an independent assessment proved otherwise). I have lost confidence in the school which is very large. There is a smaller village type school nearby. Any advice? Thanks in advance!4 AnswersPrimary & Secondary Education6 years ago
Is there anything that makes you swell with pride or just go gooey with the nice things that your toddler does? Maybe,it's the kiss before bedtime or maybe something he does that makes you laugh? My son always shares his biscuits and toys which makes me think "what a sweetie!". I'm keen to know what other parents think!3 AnswersToddler & Preschooler7 years ago
I went to see a car today ( 2002 Hyundai Coupe) and it was very nice. However when I looked under the bonnet I saw something I wasn't sure about. Can anyone enlighten me? The coolant appears to have squirted out of the top and I could see orange, sandy fluid inside at a high level. Also, there was staining over the engine I think from this coolant. It looked corrosive and a bit like how rust would form. Thanks in advance from any mechanics!2 AnswersMaintenance & Repairs7 years ago
Am I being sensitive about people's reactions to my wedding or not? I wonder what most people think?
Here's the story..... I got married last month. It was a simple, no-fuss affair but nevertheless I tried to make an effort on a limited budget. I wore a black fitted jacket with a black fitted dress with a panel of flowers. A smart, classic look for a 42 year old on her second wedding. My husband wore a black suit. I styled my hair and kept my make-up to a minimum. It wasn't elaborate with flowers or profesional styling but we all looked smart. I designed a small cake with our names written on it and a heart. Again, simple but elegant. I put up a few decorations at home and decorated the table with nice things. ll in all, it looked pretty but not overdone. My sister-in-law and her husband came over for the ceremony but she made absolutely no comment about anything. Not our rings, my dress, my shoes, nothing. Not even a general comment, like, ÿou look nice", or "the table is pretty". I didn't hear a single word. I was disappointed that nothing was commented on. Surely, if you don't like anything, you can certainly praise someone's efforts for trying? I would definitely comment a bride on her big day, even if I just said, "nice hair clip", or something small that I did like. I can't understand her behaviour. Was she just being rude or a tiny bit jealous? I don't want negative people in my circle. What would you do? Kick her to the kerb? Or just carry on? I told her I didn't want our private photos on Facebook and the next day, she put them on there. We've never been great friends. I'm also saddened by my husbands other relatives. His mother also made no comment, except a general "nice photos", but surely you compliment the bride a little bit? Thanks for your answers in advance!!2 AnswersFamily8 years ago
I'm learning Dutch and I have a problem! I find it really difficult to remember all the verbs and the simple past form of them - bewegen + bewoog / belijden +beleed / breken + brak etc. I have a big book full of them and I wondered if there's an easy way to learn them? Is there a pattern where certain letters change into others? I've noticed that the ij combination (for example, blijven) changes to ee (bleef).
Any help, gladly received! Thanks in advance.2 AnswersNetherlands9 years ago

I want to cut my boyfriend's sandwiches up using a metal cutter on Valentine's day - where in The Netherlands can I buy one. I don't shop online (he'll know!) but suggestions from well-known shops on the high street would be good. Thanks in advance!3 AnswersNetherlands9 years ago
I have very pale skin, lightish brown hair but natural black eyebrows. I want to give them some definition using an eyebrow powder but do I go for black to match them or something softer. I tried a dark brown tester in a shop but it clearly was a mismatch disaster! Would charcoal be better? I want them to look natural and not "hard looking", by being too dark. How do I apply it too? Also I have greenish blue eyes, so what is the best eye shadow, eye liner combination. I'm in my 40's and I don't want to look too made-up.2 AnswersMakeup9 years ago
I only know one line in the lyrics "Don't come around here no more". But the singer (I think he's british) sings also about his ex girlfriend's lies and how she wants him back. He sounds angry and a bit spiteful and he's got a regional accent which I can't remember! Maybe a northerner or from london but you can hear it coming through when he sings. I think it's a british band though and fairly well known. Really vague I know but if you could put me out of my misery I'd be really grateful! Thanks!2 AnswersOther - Music9 years ago
I know, this seems a strange question!! But I blow-dry my hair every morning with a hairdryer and my boyfriend says that he doesn't know any Dutch women who use a hairdryer - they just "wash and GO!". I find this really hard to believe!!! British women like to use hairdryers and straighteners and having blow-dried hair is usually a must every morning. What do Dutch women think about his comments?
