They are equal they can go into each other

- anonymous

Alright :-D

- anonymous

I am guessing you cant help me. thank you for your time

- anonymous

That's not really why they're equivalent.... 2 goes into 4.

- anonymous

MetalPen can you help me with my homework then

- anonymous

Okay.

- anonymous

The instructions say write a fraction equivelent to the given number. And the problem is 8. I dont understand that

- anonymous

Give a fraction equivalent to the number 8? 8 is really 8/1.

- anonymous

so it would be 8/1?

- anonymous

Sure.

- anonymous

You understand why right?

- anonymous

no

- anonymous

Lol. Think of it just as 8 divided by 1, not as a fraction. What's 8 divided by 1? 8 right?

- anonymous

Oh. I get it now. Thank you(: Do you mind helping me with an actual fraction?

- anonymous

Sure. Oh and, since I think it's clear you are at a lower level, we could stay in contact and I could help you with your math since we will increase our knowledge in math monotonically.

- anonymous

okayy... the problem is 2 2/3

- anonymous

Okay. Well turn it into an improper fraction first.

- anonymous

2=2/1, and 2/1 + 1/3 is what?

- phi

8= 16/2 = 24/3 and of course lots of other examples

- anonymous

6+2=8 so 8/3

- anonymous

Yup.

- anonymous

right

- anonymous

Lol. Anymore questions?

- anonymous

So all you have to do is come up with your own fractions that 'go into' the given number.

- anonymous

yess, just to make sure I am right

- anonymous

9 8/11 so 9*11= 99+8=107 so it is 107/11

- anonymous

right?

- anonymous

Yup.

- anonymous

Okay. Thank you(: i gave like 3 more lol

- anonymous

*i got 3 more

- anonymous

Okay sure.

- anonymous

4 26/13

- anonymous

78/13

- anonymous

Am I correct? I did it in my head.

- anonymous

So it might not be accurate. :(

- anonymous

I got 68/13

- anonymous

is the fraction \( 4 \frac{26}{13}\) ?

- anonymous

Let's see. Rounded it's about 40+30.

- anonymous

or is it \( \frac{6}{13} \)

- anonymous

So I'll have to do the math out.

- anonymous

yes, first one ag

- anonymous

|dw:1325723887340:dw|

- anonymous

Hehe messy. So uh. 2 more?

- anonymous

\[\frac{26}{13} = 2 \implies 4\frac{26}{13} = 4 + 2 = 6 \]

- anonymous

Yea. and i cant add lol

- anonymous

78/13 is right too

- anonymous

6 is not a fraction. I don't know what you're talking about.

- anonymous
