Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 3. 1/3t * 20/20 + 1/4t * 15/15 + 1/5t * 12/12 + 13 = t
