5 3/14

- anonymous

and what do you have to do?

- anonymous

I need to solve it and write it as a mixed numeral

- anonymous

ok, I see

- anonymous

53/14= ((14*3)+11)/14 = 3+11/14

- anonymous

like this?

- anonymous

No

- anonymous

no? than how?

- anonymous

all u have to do is 4*53. Your remainder is the numerator and the number on the side is your whole number answer.

- anonymous

5 3/14 it a fractions there is no 53 it just 5 3/14

- anonymous

oh I get it

- anonymous

what help do you need with this?

- anonymous

I need help to understand what I am doing i am very bad at math

- anonymous

ok i see, i dont like this idea at all to use mixed fractions, I think it is confusing

- anonymous

but when you have 4(1/3) for example than think about it as addition, so it is 4+1/3

- anonymous

4 2/9 *9 is the first example

- anonymous

4 2/9= 4+2/9
(4+2/9)*9=4*9+2=38

- anonymous

lets do number 4

- anonymous

I am confused why did you add it twice

- anonymous

4 2/9= 4+2/9
is this clear?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

ok, so when you write 4 2/9 *9 means that you multiply everything with 9
so it is =(4+2/9)*9
when you multiply a bracket you multiply with every term so 4*9+2/9*9=36+2

- anonymous

ok that makes sense that is what I was confused about

- anonymous

lets do 4 maybe it will be clearer after that

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

3 3/5 * 2 7/9

- anonymous

now that is (3+3/5)(2+7/9)

- anonymous

* is missing between the brackets

- anonymous

what is missing brackets

- anonymous

have you done multiplication like this before?

- anonymous

not for a while

- anonymous

* is missing (multiplication sign)

- anonymous

you have to multiply everything with everything
(3+3/5)*(2+7/9)= 3*2+3*7/9+3/5*2+3/5*7/9

- anonymous

ok I think I understand

- anonymous

now you just have to add these together and the result is 10

- anonymous

I am going to bed now, post another question if you still need help

- anonymous

what are the the / is the dividing

- anonymous

yes it is

- anonymous

ok thank you so much for your help

- anonymous

I get 11.2

- anonymous

3*2+3*7/9+3/5*2+3/5*7/9= 6+7/3+6/5+7/15=6+35/15+18/15+7/15=6+70/15=6+4=10

- anonymous

this is not that easy to do, easy to make mistakes

- anonymous

is there a simple way of doing this

- anonymous

no simple way of doing maths, use your brain and you will be fine.

- anonymous

practice also helps :)
good luck

- anonymous

thanks
