Eleven members of the Middle School Math Club each paid the same amount for a guest speaker to talk about problem solving at their math club meeting. They paid their guest speaker $1−A−2−$1_A_2_. What is the missing digit AA of this 33-digit number?
The missing digit is number 3. The total amount should be $132
I multiplied 11 by the numbers 10 and above to get the possible three digit answer who has 1 as the first digit and 2 as the last digit.
11 x 10 = 110
11 x 11 = 121
11 x 12 = 132
The 11 members of the Middle School Math club each paid $12 for a guest speaker.
