## anonymous 4 years ago 3(5/12)/1(2/3)=41/20 how?

1. amistre64

3(5/12) ------ = 3 * (15/24) if i see it right 1 (2/3)

2. amistre64

15/12 15/12 ----- = ------- = 15/8 2/3 * 4/4 8/12

no i meant to say 3 and 5/12 being a fraction

4. amistre64

ohh ....

5. amistre64

3 + 5/12 = (36+5)/12 = 41/12

6. amistre64

1+2/3 = (3+2)/3 = 5/3

7. amistre64

41/12 41/12 ----- = ------ = 41/20 5/3 * 4/4 20/12

(3*12+5)/12/(1*3+2)/3 =36+5/12/5/3 =41*3/12*5 =41/20

atjari i dont see how you got that?

10. phi

can you change $3 \frac{5}{12}$ into an improper fraction? you get $\frac{3*12+5}{12} = \frac{41}{12}$ now change the denominator into an improper fraction $1 \frac{2}{3}= \frac{5}{3}$ to divide 41/12 by 5/3 , flip the 5/3 and multiply (important to know this!) $\frac{41}{12}\cdot\frac{3}{5}= \frac{41}{\cancel{12}4}\cdot\frac{\cancel{3}}{5}= \frac{41}{20}$
