Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am trying to add a fraction that has a different denominator, but am trying to figure out how do you know when to change the numerator???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/4 + 3/10 + 2/5, now is no the LCD is 20, now my question is how do I change to numerator???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or how do I know when to change it???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright, do you notice something about the fractions 1/2 and 5/10?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes that they are equivalent!!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay good. so 5/10 is basically 1/2 multiplied by 5 on both numerator and denominator correct?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so when adding fractions together I basically find the multiple of the denominator and make it the numerator. Example, 1/4 + 2/5 + 3/10 change to 5/20 + 10/20 + 6/20?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you sure 2/5 is the same as 10/20?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My mistake 2/5 will be 8/20... right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right. now, all your fractions have a common denominator. so you can add up all the numerators.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I really am not getting this numerator and denominator part. Because I know am mutiplying right but my answer isn't corresponding with the answer in my book!!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the answer should be 19/20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Its right, but am trying to make sure I understand how to change the numerator when you find the LCD to the problem!!!!! Are their any rules to changing the numerator to a problem???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Suppose you had a pizza. Suppose the delivery guy had cut it into 6 equal parts. you paid the pizza guy 10 dollars for your pizza. Now lets say you wanted to share the pizza with me since you can't finish it all on your own. Suppose I paid you 3 dollars. How much pizza should I get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no problem. Let me explain. your pizza costs 10 dollars. I said I will pay you 3 dollars for my share of the pizza. now suppose instead of cutting the pizza in 6 pieces, the delivery guy had cut it into ten pieces. Then I would get 3 pieces, because there are totally 10 pieces, so each piece is worth 1 dollar. Are you with me so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, good. But the problem is that the pizza guy cut it into 6 pieces. So how do I get my fair share and how do you get your fair share?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, I should get threetenths of the pizza because I paid 3 dollars for it. right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so what I am going to do is cut up each of the 6 pieces into 5 smaller pieces, so that we have 30 total pieces. then threetenths of 30 pieces is 9. So, I would get 9 of the smaller pieces.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What did you not understand in this example?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Try considering when you multiply a denominator like the ones you have, say 4/5 to 8/10. The number cannot be changed so technically you are multiplying the fraction by 1. (4/5) * (2/2) = 8/10. In your case (1/4)*(5/5) = 5/20, (2/5)*(4/4)= 8/20, then you have the last one, and any other fraction you need to get a common denominator for. Remember you cannot just up and change any number's value, but you can change the way it looks. Multiply by 1. (sorry to but in by the way. I just wanted to see what the question you had actually was.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 2/5 means that out of 5 pieces, you have 2 pieces, or that out of 20 pieces, you have 8 pieces, since 2/5=8/20 or that out of 40 pieces, you have 16 pieces. since 2/5 = 16/40
