Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is this:\[(8m16)\div(3m6)\]with two choices for the answer: 20 or 40?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no the 20 should have a line above it but under the 8m16 and the same with the 40 and 3m16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so question is:\[\frac{8m16}{20}\div\frac{3m6}{40}\]correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, do you the rule for dividing fractions? i.e. this rule:\[\frac{a}{b}\div\frac{p}{q}=\frac{a}{b}\times\frac{q}{p}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we can make use of this to get:\[\frac{8m16}{20}\div\frac{3m6}{40}=\frac{8m16}{20}\times\frac{40}{3m6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can also factorise a bit to get:\[\frac{8m16}{20}\times\frac{40}{3m6}=\frac{8(m2)}{20}\times\frac{40}{3(m2)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you saying it should be:\[\frac{8(m2)}{20}\times\frac{40}{3(m2)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you end up with:\[\frac{8}{1}\times\frac{2}{3}=\frac{16}{3}=\frac{16}{3}=5\frac{1}{3}\]
