## anonymous 4 years ago My 5th Grade son received this: Can some one help please? Thanks Solve for N: 27/36=N/4

1. amistre64

multiply it ll by 4

2. anonymous

so I multiply each by 4?

3. anonymous

Rearrange so N=(27/36)*4

4. anonymous

is this proper for a 5th grade kid?

5. amistre64

$\frac{N}{4}*4=N*\frac{4}{4}=N*1=N$

6. amistre64

5th grade is fine for teaching how to use math operations,

7. anonymous

It is basic algebra.

ok thanks
