Re: A Gold question :)

(5 coins) X (1/10  oz/coin) = 5/10 oz = 1/2 oz

and

(5 coins) X ( 1/25  oz/coin) = 5/25 oz = 1/5 oz

so

1/2 oz + 1/5 oz = 5/10 oz + 2/10 oz = 7/10 oz

if you arent good with fractions , use decimal and think of it like change

1/2 = 0.50

1/4 = 0.25

1/10 = 0.10

1/20 = 0.05

1/25 = 0.04

(5 coins) X (0.10  oz/coin) = 0.50 oz

(5 coins) X ( 0.04  oz/coin) = 0.20 oz

0.50 + 0.20 = 0.70 oz

Re: A Gold question :)

Im not sure what coins they were bart – i dont understand things like that. I just figured that if everything goes bellly up and I need a doctor for one of my kids – maybe i could pay with gold or silver.

My way of thinking is prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

I run scenarios thru my mind and then try and cover it. I have come to realise though that we can only do our best – not everything can be covered  – a few gold coins sitting around wont hurt anyone 🙂

Thankyou miller that maths makes it real easy/
