- anonymous

i can help

- anonymous

Do you have a problem with fractions that I can help you with or not?

- anonymous

i thought i typed it sorry ill retype

- anonymous

I HAVE TWO THIRDS PLUS FIVE SIXTHS AND I GOTTA SHOW ALL MY WORK

- anonymous

ok so does it look like this:
2/3+5/6

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

Ok so first you have to find a common denominator.
what is something that both 3 and 6 go into evenly?

- anonymous

ummmmm 18

- anonymous

Ok or even more simply your common denominator could be 6
3*2=6
6*1=6
so your common denominator will be 6

- anonymous

so now you can add them

- anonymous

so 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.

- anonymous

we have to change it to a mixed numba

- anonymous

Now take 2/3
3*2=6
2*2=4
your fraction should now look like this 4/6

- anonymous

huh? u lost me sorry

- anonymous

Your equation looks like this now:
4/6+5/6
simply add the numerators together
4+5=9/6

- anonymous

YOu 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

so either 9/6 or 1(1/2) is your answer

- anonymous

how does it become 4/6 thts my only other q

- anonymous

Ok 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

- anonymous

ok i get it

- anonymous

You sure?

- anonymous

WAIT WE HAVE TO CHANGE IT TO A MIXED NUMBER NO IMPROPER FRACTIONS

- anonymous

right 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)

- anonymous

is tht the only problem you can help me on

- anonymous

I can help you on another one real quick if you would like

- anonymous

ok cause its homework u know

- anonymous

That's ok I do online school so I ask a lot of questions too... As long as you understand what you are doing

- anonymous

2/3-1/6 and 4/7-1/2 well i understand better now so itll probally go along faster

- anonymous

ok are these two separate questions?

- anonymous

maybe....

- anonymous

Well on your hw is 2/3-1/6 a different problem than 4/7-1/2?

- anonymous

yes yes yes yes yes yes i basically have the whole sheet to do yes yes yes

- anonymous

Ok sorry just checking cause I don't want to give you a wrong answer due to not having a problem written down correctly

- anonymous

Ok so let's start with 2/3-1/6
Find the common denominator

- anonymous

its 6

- anonymous

good job so what do you have to multiply 3 by to get 6 as a common denominator

- anonymous

2

- anonymous

Right 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

the answer is 2/6

- anonymous

isnt it

- anonymous

no... 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

If you multiply the bottom of a fraction you ave to multiply by the exact same number to the top of the fraction

- anonymous

right then I did the 1/6 and got 2/6 then 4/6-2/6=2/6

- anonymous

Ok well -1/6 already has 6 as the denominator so you actually don't have to worry about that particular fraction

- anonymous

but dont u still have to times it

- anonymous

your problem should look like this now:
4/6-1/6=?
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

No 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

its 1/2

- anonymous

Yep good job sorry I had to go do something really fast ok do you need help on the second problem still?
