Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so does it look like this: 2/3+5/6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so first you have to find a common denominator. what is something that both 3 and 6 go into evenly?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok or even more simply your common denominator could be 6 3*2=6 6*1=6 so your common denominator will be 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now you can add them

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in order to get a common denominator you have to do the same thing to the top as you do to the bottom of your fraction. Because 5/6 already has 6 as the common denominator you can leave that fraction alone.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we have to change it to a mixed numba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now take 2/3 3*2=6 2*2=4 your fraction should now look like this 4/6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your equation looks like this now: 4/6+5/6 simply add the numerators together 4+5=9/6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0YOu can simplify this by asking how many times six goes into nine and how much is left over. 6 goes into 9 once. 1 (3/6) or 1(1/2)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so either 9/6 or 1(1/2) is your answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how does it become 4/6 thts my only other q

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so i2/3=4/6 because in order to have a comomon denominator, which is 6, I have to multiply both the bottom and the top by the same number. so to get 3 to 6 I have to multiply 3*2 You have to do the same thing to the top of the fraction 2*2=4 so now your fraction is 4/6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0WAIT WE HAVE TO CHANGE IT TO A MIXED NUMBER NO IMPROPER FRACTIONS

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right that's this step.... YOu can simplify this by asking how many times six goes into nine and how much is left over. 6 goes into 9 once and you have 3 left over. 1 (3/6) 3/6=1/2 your final answer is: 1(1/2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02/31/6 and 4/71/2 well i understand better now so itll probally go along faster

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok are these two separate questions?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well on your hw is 2/31/6 a different problem than 4/71/2?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes yes yes yes yes yes i basically have the whole sheet to do yes yes yes

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok sorry just checking cause I don't want to give you a wrong answer due to not having a problem written down correctly

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so let's start with 2/31/6 Find the common denominator

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good job so what do you have to multiply 3 by to get 6 as a common denominator

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right and whatever you do to the bottom you have to do to the top so multiply 2 by 2 as well and what does 2/3=?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no... so you multiplied 3*2=6 for you denominator now you have to multiply the numerator by 2 as well so that your fraction is correct. 2*2=4 so 2/3=4/6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you multiply the bottom of a fraction you ave to multiply by the exact same number to the top of the fraction

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right then I did the 1/6 and got 2/6 then 4/62/6=2/6

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok well 1/6 already has 6 as the denominator so you actually don't have to worry about that particular fraction

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but dont u still have to times it

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your problem should look like this now: 4/61/6=? simply do the subtraction across the top. your answer should be 3/6 you can simplify this because you know 3 is 1/2 of 6 so your answer is 1/2

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No because the only reason we did it to the other fraction was to make it have the same denominator as 1/6 because both 3 and 6 can go into 6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep good job sorry I had to go do something really fast ok do you need help on the second problem still?
