Kevin First I multiplied 3/8 so it's 3*8 and that is 24 and 64 goals were scored but 3/8 of the goals were blocked so 64 minus 24 is 40 so 40 goals were scored.

This problem was easy for me because I did 1/2 * 3/1 = 3/2. When I got that, I turned it into a mixed fraction and got 1 1/2 miles to go. I hope that people have a fun time figuring out this problem! Bye!
Thank You for solving my problem! The answer is 0.5 because 3/2=1.5 and 1.5-1.0=0.5. Good try!

24 because I did 8x7=56 then I did 8x8=64 goals and 8x3=24...tada!!! the answer.

24 shots were blocked because 64 divided by 8 is 8 and 8 times 3 is 24.

24 shots were blocked. One-eighth of 64 is eight, so three-eighths would be 24. So 24 shots were blocked.

24 shots were blocked! This problem was not that hard, but, it took me 2 minutes to solve it! Try Parker B's problem!

24 shots were blocked. 64/8=8 then times 3 and that gets you 24.

64/8=8 and 3x8= 24

I think the answer is 24. 64/8=8 and 8x3=24

Hello, I'm excited to start this blog about math because I love math. Math isn't the only thing i like to do, I like to play Sunflake soccer, read, and hang out with my friends. One of my favorite ways to solve math problems is using partial products. That's some of the things about me. See ya later!
