    Hello, I would be glad to help you with this problem. Can you show me how you got 1/18?

    I know ;) I wanted to see if the steps could be show. I have to ask though, are there 2 portions that are shaded? For example is it 1/2 + 1/9 for the total area shaded?

    Okay well if you have 2 portions that need to combined, you are right by looking for the least common denominator. But if you are multiplying you need to do it do both fractions. For example: \[1/2 (9/9)\] Because to get the denominator to 18 you must multiply 1/2 by 9/9 we can't forget the 9 on top ;)

    yes there is a area that is and thats the area where i have to find out the fraction and write it in simplest form

    okay well in that case, lets assume that an "equation" for this problem would be: 1/1=a+(1/2+1/9). Here we say that 1/1 is the whole area of the circle in fraction form. and a is the area you are trying to find(the shaded area) and the number in the parentheses represent what is NOT shaded in the circle.

    Sure. that would be fine. Or if you could take a picture of it etc. and upload it as an atachment etc. that would work too.
