If Benita will be 24 years old in 8 years, how old was Juliana 3 years ago? What number is halfway between 1/2 and 0.85? Good luck if u do this i will put more! __________________ impossible is just a word used by people who are too afraid to do something themselves. In reality there's no such thing as impossible.

i said that number cuz it said half way between 1/2 and 0.85
