You get an A for the day. You must have been really good in math in school

Reverse the operations.  42 ÷ 3 = 14. 14 - 8 = 6. 6× 4 = 24

Well done old girl,er,Bob i mean,

I hate math story problems, b/c they're always so vague

MCM, this isn't a story problem, though, and I know you could do it. With story problems, one has to weed through what they NEED to know against the extra stuff thrown in to confuse.
