\[\frac{\frac{5}{6}}{\frac{1}{2}}*\frac{\frac{2}{1}}{\frac{2}{1}}=\frac{\frac{10}{6}}{\frac{2}{2}}=\frac{10}{6}\]

So , basically , the answer is ten sixths

  • amistre64
basically yes; but you might want to reduce it for proper form ...

Okay so then it would be one and two thirds. Right?
amistre64
  • amistre64
5/3 = 1' 2/3 yes

  • anonymous
THANKS!!!!!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now check this one I did
anonymous
  • anonymous
one fourth of one half is = one eight. or 0.125
anonymous
  • anonymous
Right?
amistre64
  • amistre64
hmm, now that i think of it .... i might have had a misguided thought. 1/2 ---- = 1/8 yes 4 so the first one was thought of wrong ... 5/6 --- = 5/12 2

  • amistre64
its tough getting old :)

Wait what?

  • anonymous
So the first one is 2 ?

What is one half OF five sixths? would have been better if I read it as: What is half OF five sixths \[\frac{5/6}{2}=\frac{5}{6*2}=5/12\]

  • anonymous
Okay guide me through the next one two thirds of one fourth ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think that as a decimal its .166 continuing but anyways I need to know the fraction
amistre64
  • amistre64
\[2(\frac{1/4}{3})=2(\frac{1}{4*3})=\frac{2}{12}=1/6\]

Thanks!!!!!

yep

Will you help me with just one last problem PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
amistre64
  • amistre64
is it an interesting problem?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well , it all depends on what you think.
anonymous
  • anonymous
PLEASE just help me Okay so the problem says: you start with a number. Double it. Square the answer. You get 1,296. What number did you start with?
amistre64
  • amistre64
start with a number "n" double it: 2n square it: (2n)^2 that equals: (2n)^2 = 1296 what is n?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Dont know?
amistre64
  • amistre64
what would undo a "^2" ? any guesses?
amistre64
  • amistre64
if; 2*2 = 2^2 = 4; and sqrt(4) = sqrt(2*2) = 2 ....
anonymous
  • anonymous
THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
amistre64
  • amistre64
no, that was an example to get you to consider a strategy on your own ....
anonymous
  • anonymous
O
anonymous
  • anonymous
No but for the example that you showed the answer is 2. Right?
amistre64
  • amistre64
lol, the answer is: a sqrt(..) undoes a ^2; and a ^2 undoes a sqrt(...) 3^2 = 9 ; sqrt(9) = sqrt(3^2) = 3
anonymous
  • anonymous
What u r so confusing .
amistre64
  • amistre64
we have to solve for "n", and im assuming youve been thru these techniques prior to this (2n)^2 = 1296 sqrt((2n)^2) = sqrt(1296) 2n = sqrt(1296) quite frankly, its better if you come to this on your own ... helps to build a math repitiore

What is n
amistre64
  • amistre64
n is the number we are looking for
