Devin throws a football 7 and 1/3 yards. Carl throws it 2 and 1/2 times farther. How much farther did Carl’s throw travel than Devin’s?

A 11 yards
Explaination

Carl’s throw went 7 and 1/3 * 2 and 1/2 =22/3 * 5/2=110/6 = 18 and 1/3 yards. The difference between the two throws is 18 and 1/3 - 7 and 1/3 = 11 yards.
