Add together the amounts Zing earns for babysitting and washing 2 cars. Subtract that answer from $26 to know how much more Zing must earn.

Use one of the methods you tried in the previous questions to figure out how many times Zing must now walk the dog. Remember, you can solve this by adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing!

One way to solve this problem is through division. Divide the amount Zing still needs to earn by $3.75 (the amount Zing gets for walking the dog). If your answer isn’t a whole number, you’ll need to round your answer up, because Zing is paid for the whole job only.
