Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the two negatives become positives so it becomes 10 so 10/3 = 3 1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, I know what's happening. Use PEMDAS. The division has to happen first, so it's (6)/(3), which equals 2. 42 is 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorr maybe i should repost this... but the the problem is actually 4(6)/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It'd be the same thing. Divide 6 by 5, and then subtract that answer from 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.06/5 = 1 1/5 so 4  1 1/5 = 2 4/5 = 2.8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.06/5 = 1 1/5? im sorry but can you explain how you go that answer this is new to me...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you divide two negatives you get a positive so it would actually be 6/5 then 5 goes into 6 once with 1/5 left over which gives you 1 1/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what about 4 1 1/5 how do you subtract those?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you change it to improper fractions it's easier, so instead of 4 it would be 20/5, and instead of 1&1/5 it would be 6/5. Then just subtract 206

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 206 = 14 14/5 = 2 4/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0only thing is that this asnwer key is saying that the answer is 2????

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then they aren't doing PEMDAS. so then 4 (6) would equal 10 because the negatives become positive making it 4 + 6 10/ 5 would be 2 because the one negative makes the whole fraction negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how would you get the square root of something w/out using a calculator????

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually how do you even get a square root of something?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0example.... \[\sqrt{2} X \sqrt{15}=\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a square root is a number that when multiplied by itself equals a given number so like the square root of 9 would be 3 because 3*3 = 9 and the square root of 16 would be 4 because 4*4 = 16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0woa! I messed that up...what i meant was that if 2 and 5 dont have square roots could the anser be \[\sqrt{30}\]
