    (9/10) (7/4) what does parehtheses mean?

  24. anonymous

    it means u multiply the fraction 9/10 by the fraction 7/4. when multiplying fractions u multiply top by top and bottom by bottom so (9/10) (7/4) = 63/40

    not sure what u mean rose a single 5 is just the number 5 . 1 on top and 5 on bottom is the fraction 1/5 (one fifth)

    kris algebra class has only 23 computers for the 40 students in class.what is the likelihood that kris will have to share a computer with another student in the class?

    yes beauty - i'm still thinking -i'm not sure of this but i think the probability is 100 per cent as there are more students than computers are u sure u have the numbers right?

    oh - hold on - my heads not working - 34 will share 17 computers and the other 6 will have a computer of their own - so the probability of sharing is 17/23

    right - well without algebra its a metter of guesswork and trial. What u have to think ofis what 2 numbers when added together make 23, and when one of them is X by 2 (that is two sharing a computer) and the other is added make 40. the only 2 numbers which fit are 17 (sharing) and 6 have a computer on their own in algebra u let x = no of computer shared and y = no. not shared, so x + y = 23 2x + y = 40 and there is a way to solve these 2 'equations' to give u the answers u will learn this in future

    so 17 of the computers are shared so probability = 17/23
