    Default Math Problem - 4th Grade

    My daughter is working on activity 40867. On page 3, letter b they ask what is 294x20, when we give the answer 5880, it says we are incorrect. Anyone experience this or know what's going on?

    Thanks!

    Hi Robin,

    I went to the activity to try it for you. It also marked my answer wrong. Then I noticed I had not put the comma in after the 5. When I tried it with the comma it accepted my answer as correct. See if your daughter left out the comma.
    Hope this solves your problem

    That's exactly right! I should have known that since we figured it out for problem A! ha

    Thank you, Carla!

    Since a computer can't "think", how you input an answer is sometimes very important. Common errors are typing a number "zero" instead of a letter "oh" (or vice versa), having the num-lock key on, inserting a space before the answer and, of course, inserting or leaving out a comma (or other character).

    Most of the questions you encounter won't require such consideration.
