    \[ 32= (2*2*2*2*2)\] \[24=2*2*2*3\]

    anything you have the same number over the same number it is one

    24/32 = 2*2*2*3/(2*2*2*2*2)= 3/(2*2)=3/4

    6/11 + 3/22 = would that be 9/33 = 3/11

    I would assume the teacher meant to write divided by 7/7 you can divide any number by one and it does not change its value.

    6/11 +3/22 is not 9/33 6/11 X 2/2 =12/22 now you can add 12/22 + 3/22= 15/22

    Although if it was 9/33 it does equal 3/11
