right - it's combining like terms.

for example, if I give you 5oranges and 10oranges, how many oranges do you have?
anonymous
  • anonymous
15 yes,,, is just the way the put it together sounds difficult
sandra
  • sandra
right exactly. so now you have to add the fractions by finding the lowest common denominator of 3, 4, and 5
sandra
  • sandra
well, or any common denominator really

awww kk. ur good..lol... math is not my subj can u tell?
sandra
  • sandra
1. 1/3t +1/4t + 1/5t + 8 + 5 = t 2. 1/3t + 1/4t + 1/5t +13 = t Now 3x4x5 = 60. so we want to get a 60 on the bottom of each fraction by multiplying by different variations of 1 (since anything/anything = 1)
sandra
  • sandra
so 3. 1/3t * 20/20 + 1/4t * 15/15 + 1/5t * 12/12 + 13 = t
sandra
  • sandra
4. 20/60t + 15/60t + 12/60t + 13 = t
sandra
  • sandra
5. (20+15+12)/60t + 13 = t
sandra
  • sandra
6. 47/60t + 13 = t
sandra
  • sandra
7. 47/60t - 47/60t + 13 = t - 47/60t
sandra
  • sandra
8. 13 = 13/60t
sandra
  • sandra
13/(13/60) = (13/60t)/(13/60)
sandra
  • sandra
t = 60*13/13
sandra
  • sandra
t = 60
sandra
  • sandra
so now put 60 in place of t back into the equation to check it
sandra
  • sandra
60*1/3 + 60*1/4 + 60*1/5 + 8 + 5 = 60 ?
sandra
  • sandra
20 + 15 + 12 + 13 = 60, 60=60
sandra
  • sandra
so we were right
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes got the same answ thank u
