Guess if you can't figure it out. There is no penalty for wrong answers in this section.
Negative numbers are not possible as answers in this section. If your answer comes up negative, do it again.
You may begin to enter a short answer in any column. For instance, .6 can be entered in columns 1-2, or 2-3, or 3-4.
If an answer is a repeating decimal (like .33333333), just enter as many decimals as will fit in the grid (.333).
You may enter an equivalent decimal for a fraction as your answer, but why waste the time evaluating the fraction?
Do not try to enter mixed numbers. For example, if your answer is 3 1/2, enter it as 3.5 or 7/2.
