Do you have an example?
Well if you can give me an example maybe I can help you
Can you put your example on here?
im also having trouble putting example im new on here .
Ok so if it is a fraction for example writ 4/3.... Is that what you don't get?
2/3 + 1/7 for example
Ok so in order to add fractions you have to find a common denominator. what is something that both 3 and 7 go into?
Well 3(7)=21 so 21 is your common denominator. Now in order to get both your denominators to be 21 you have to adjust the fractions via multiplication: 2/3 3(7)=21 2(7)=14 2/3=14/21
Now do the same thing to the other fraction so that the common denominator is 21
The easy tip that mmbuckaroos is giving you is that you can mutliply the denominators to get a common denominator. This will cause you to have to simplify later in a lot of cases, but at least you are down to an answer at that point.
i think im not getting the simplifying .
Ok well we are not to the simplifying part yet... You want to multiply both the denominators to find a common denominator but whatever you do to the bottom of a fraction you have to do the same to the top of the fraction so for the fraction 2/3... Multiply the denominator (bottom) 3*7=21 Now you have to do the same thing to the top of the fraction 2*7=14 Your fraction now looks like this: 14/21
Now do the same thing for the fraction 1/7....
Multiply the denominator (bottom) 7*3=21 Now you have to do the same thing to the top of the fraction 1*3=3 Your fraction now looks like this: 3/21
Your equation should look like this now: 14/21+3/21 Now you can simply add the numerators (top of the fraction) to get: 17/21
17/21 can not be simplified so that is your final answer
your steps are better than my instructors thanx. However i made a mistake it was 2/7+ 1/7 sorry
Ok so that is even easier! You already have a common denominator All you have to do is add the numerators
3/7 should be your answer
so it stays 3/7 cuz it cant be simplified
how often do u help on here u ?
Well Lately I have been on a lot trying to get some help myself... but problems like these are fun.
i have always feared math but i have to finish my math to graduate from college. And im shy to get help w tutors at school.
are u in los angeles?
Understandable I'm not much of a math fan myself.. don't much like it at all really and no I'm not in Los Angeles... but what math are you taking if you are in college?
Im actually a returning student and always put math off and now need to get it out of the way. I am taking math 20 which is basic.
Nice! Hey better to get it done then never right?!? lol
thanx so much !
No problem anytime! I do online school so I basically have to teach myself cause my online teachers can only help you so much.....so I understand your frustrations. Just holler if you need anymore help:)
well im going to work on the problems cuz homework is do tonight. When will u be on here again ?
OH I'm on and off probably tomorrow... I have to catch up on some math HW so I'll be on here for as much help as I can get lol...
are u a female or male just curious i like to know who im talking to.
nice to meet u my name is Diana. I have a daughter she's math honors and won't really help me lol. u have been so kind. I will try and do my h.w. and if i have a question i will look for u tomorrow.
Nice to meet you too:) Best of luck on your H.W. and sounds like a plan Stan;)
