Thumbs up Shsat

Anyone attending the specialized highschools here are two questions:

Juliana is half as old as Benita. 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!

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

so i turned 1/2 to a decimal which is 0.50.
and did the differenc between 0.85 and 0.50
