For the problems where we type in an answer do we also include the units with the answer?

Hi Gowri,

Good question! For the "Quick Response" questions, unless it is a multiple choice problem you answer should just be a number / decimal (with no units, dollar signs, etc.).

As an example to hopefully make things clear. For the made up simple question "George has a one dollar bill and a quarter, how much money (in dollars) does he have?"

  • Correct Way to Input: 1.25
  • Incorrect Ways to Input: $1.25, 125 cents, 5/4, 1 and 1/4 dollars, etc.

Hope this helps!
