This one should be easy as you don't need to carry the 1 into the 10's column. Simply add 4 + 2 in the one's column to get 6 and add 1 +2 in the ten's column to get 3. So your answer is 36.
Any type of word used to describe an action, state or occurrence is a verb. Run, walk, crawl, think are verbs.
On this problem add the one's column together to get 4 + 7 = 11. Leave the "1" in the one's column and carry 1 into the ten's column. Now add 2 plus the "1" you carried over to get 3. The answer is 31.
If a word ends in ch, sh, s, x, or ss, you'll need to use "es" to pluralize the word. With other word endings, an "s" is sufficient to mean more than one.
Here's a quick way to add this up. If you just take "2" from 57 you get 55, AND you can add that "2" to 48 to get 50. Now the addition problem is 50 + 55. That's much faster and easier to add up!
Could you do this in your head? Start with the ones columns to get 16. Leave the six and carry the 1 into the 10's column. Now you have 4 + 8 + 1 in the tens column or 13. Leave the 3 in the 10's column and carry the 1 to the next column to get 1 + 3 +1 = 5. The answer is 536.

The best answer is a present tense singular verb., which is "includes".
Add 12 to both sides of the equation to get 4x - 12 + 12 = 4 +12, or 4x = 16. Divide both sides of the equation by 4 to get x = 4.
Congested and nauseated both indicate the person doesn't feel well and most likely doesn't want to eat. If the person is satisfied he or she is not wanting for a meal.
Cross multiply to get 12 x 6 = 30x or 72 = 30x. Then divide both sides by 30 to get 2.4 = x .

All the other phrases need additional words to make the sentence grammatically or logically correct. For instance, "The statue was knocked sideways, AND looked".
As the number travels to the right of the decimal, the number gets smaller. So .015 is 15/1000
