post your math question and I will try to help you

what course is this? looks like you are doing a proof

ok did not look like calculus

looks like I might not be able to help after all but I can tell you that they multiply d to both sides to get thisdw:1346461339585:dw

not sure what is going on after that, I find all of those blanks confusing

don't they have a lecture part prior to this?

I am supposed to fill in the blanks
 one year ago

precalBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes, I realize that but I am not following the logic to it. I am sure they are applying many algebraic properties along the way

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Well thanks anyway dude

sorry, maybe someone else will come help you. You can always close this problem and repost it but it might help if you write it out using draw (some people will not open attachments). btw I am a girl

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
alright I think I'll take my chances with the attachment since it would take me forever to write that out and it might not even be legible

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it says add \(a\) to both sides so the 3rd line would be \[ \large a+\frac{ad}{b}<a+c \]
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
where does it say add a?
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Ill take that on faith for now
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it is on the third line to the right
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it also says simplify
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
"Adding a to both sides and simplifying, we see that" I see but I'm not sure what to do still. What do they want me to do for the next line?
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
put a common denominator on a?
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no. just what i wrote.
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then add the fractions on the left side \[ \large \frac{ab+ad}{b}<a+c \]
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then factor \(a\) \[ \large \frac{a}{b}\cdot(b+d)<a+c \]
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Thanks I think I get it now.
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then \(b+d\) passes to the other side to divide \[ \large \frac{a}{b}<\frac{a+c}{b+d} \]
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
this covers the first part :)
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
is the second part different?
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
not at all, try it.
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Thanks alot. I'm new. Should I keep the question open? Until I work it out?
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it's up to u. i'll be here for one more hour or so.

do u know how to call someone's atention??

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
write @ to the left of his "name". like this @znimon

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
@helder_edwin it says my lines 3(half of line 3) and 4 are wrong. I have (b+d)/b and in the last blank I have (ab+cb)/(b+d)
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the first two blanks (line 3) should be \(a\)
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
ok says my 5th and 7th blanks are wrong
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
next line should be \[ \large ab+ad\qquad\text{and}\qquad a \]
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
next line should be \[ \large b+d\qquad\text{and}\qquad a \]
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
why isn't b+d divided by b
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
u r factoring a from the denominator and just puting the dominator (b) under what u just factored
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
hmm I don't really get it
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it is this \[ \large \frac{r\cdot s}{m}=\frac{r}{m}\cdot s \]
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
oh I get it not breaking the number into its prime factors
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so \[ \large \frac{ab+ad}{b}=\frac{a(b+d)}{b}=\frac{a}{b}\cdot(b+d) \]
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
so the final blank should be (a+c)/b+d
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the next (last) line would be \[ \large \frac{a+c}{b+d} \]
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now do the next part
 one year ago

helder_edwinBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
as i told u it's very similar
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
first two lines should both be c
 one year ago

znimonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
@helder_edwin finished and all correct
