right - it's combining like terms.

- sandra

for example, if I give you 5oranges and 10oranges, how many oranges do you have?

- anonymous

15 yes,,, is just the way the put it together sounds difficult

- sandra

right exactly. so now you have to add the fractions by finding the lowest common denominator of 3, 4, and 5

- sandra

well, or any common denominator really

- anonymous

awww kk. ur good..lol... math is not my subj can u tell?

- 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

so
3. 1/3t * 20/20 + 1/4t * 15/15 + 1/5t * 12/12 + 13 = t

- sandra

4. 20/60t + 15/60t + 12/60t + 13 = t

- sandra

5. (20+15+12)/60t + 13 = t

- sandra

6. 47/60t + 13 = t

- sandra

7. 47/60t - 47/60t + 13 = t - 47/60t

- sandra

8. 13 = 13/60t

- sandra

13/(13/60) = (13/60t)/(13/60)

- sandra

t = 60*13/13

- sandra

t = 60

- sandra

so now put 60 in place of t back into the equation to check it

- sandra

60*1/3 + 60*1/4 + 60*1/5 + 8 + 5 = 60 ?

- sandra

20 + 15 + 12 + 13 = 60, 60=60

- sandra

so we were right

- anonymous

yes got the same answ thank u

- sandra

no problem. good luck!

- anonymous

process was def long
but well explain

- sandra

heh yeah sorry - these are tough at first. the toughest part is turning the word problem into an equation, but it comes easier with practice

- anonymous

i bet iam inthe process of receiving my textbook so for noe examples and notes

- anonymous

but i appreciate ur patient and time
