what is her goal?
her goal is 5 miles
what is 5-(9/8+16/8)?
If she ran 1 1/8 miles(equals 9/8) and then 2 miles(equlas 16/8), add them together and subtract them from the distance she need to run.
what would the answer be (i suck at math)
how old are you?
i want to see if you are old enough to do simple addition and subtraction.
to be safe, what grade are you in?
i am and i did the adding it's just your talking about subtracting a fraction from a whole number and i really really really really at math
i only in 6 th but i'm in home schooling so my teachers don't help me
what numbers do you have so far?
i have 25/8 and it might be wrong but like i said i suck at math
that is right so far. now, in order to add fractions, the denominators, the number at the bottom, must be equal. Did you know that?
good. so you need to find a number that, if you divide it by 8, you get 5. what number is this?
think about it like this. you are addding 25/8 +5, but you can't do it yet because the denominators are not the same. so what can you do to 5 to let it have a denominator of 8?
you can divide it by 40
close. do you mean like this 5/40?
actually i was thinking the other way around 40/5
right!:) good job. ok. i made a mistake earlier when I said you are adding 25/8 +5. really, you are doing this: 5-25/8. Can you take it from here?
yeah thx so much
ok. I'll tell you if your answer is right once you tell me what you get.
do you have an answer yet?
yeah i tried writing it out and it got me i don't know how but it was 1.875
yes. that is exactly correct. good job!
oh um wow i thought i was wrong thx
glad I could be of assistance.
