Yep 7 and 2 both share a common denominator of 14 good job so let's start with 4/7 what do you have to multiply 7 by to get 14
anonymous
  • anonymous
2
anonymous
  • anonymous
Good now multiply 7 by 2 to get the denominator and multiply the numerator which is 4 by 2 as well

  • anonymous
Good job! Now lets work on the other fraction....
anonymous
  • anonymous
1/2 what do you have to multiply 2 by to get 14?
anonymous
  • anonymous
7
anonymous
  • anonymous
2/14
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yep so multiply 2 by 7 to get 14 as your denominator and do the same thing to the top of the fraction what does 1/2=?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You still have to multiply 2*7 to finish correcting the fraction
anonymous
  • anonymous
wat
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 1/2=7/14
anonymous
  • anonymous
SO when I say do the same thing to the top of the fraction I mean multiply the top number of the fraction by the same number you multiplied by on the bottom of the fraction
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok the answer was 1 14
anonymous
  • anonymous
Your problem should now look like this: 8/14-7/14 subtract now and yep you got the answer right good job
anonymous
  • anonymous
u plz not say good job then i feel like a kindergatiner
anonymous
  • anonymous
ha ha sorry my bad
anonymous
  • anonymous
if the denominaters is 5 or 6 is th lcm 11
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think it would be 30....
anonymous
  • anonymous
how?
anonymous
  • anonymous
cause lcm is The smallest (non-zero) number that is a multiple of two or more numbers.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 5*6=30 and there isn't any lower number that they both go into evenly other than 30
anonymous
  • anonymous
i meant lcd
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh ok lol no it would be 30 still for the same reason
anonymous
  • anonymous
$!@#
anonymous
  • anonymous
ha ha sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so 30 then wat im confused on this one
anonymous
  • anonymous
5*6=30 6*5=30 both 5 and 6 can't both go into anything that is lower than thirty
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh ok the top numbers are 1/5 and 5/6
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok does the problem ask you to add or subtract them or what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
1/5=6/30 5/6=25/30
anonymous
  • anonymous
subtract
anonymous
  • anonymous
no add
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so 6/30-25/30=-19/30
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so adding it would be 6/30+25/30=31/30 simplify 1(1/30)
anonymous
  • anonymous
now if the denominaters were 5 and 2 couldnt the lcd be 10
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
now if the denominaters were 5 and 2 couldnt the lcd be 10
