I am supposed to fill in the blanks

precal Group TitleBest 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

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

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

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
where does it say add a?
 2 years ago

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Ill take that on faith for now

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it is on the third line to the right
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it also says simplify
 2 years ago

znimon Group TitleBest 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?

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
put a common denominator on a?
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no. just what i wrote.

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then add the fractions on the left side \[ \large \frac{ab+ad}{b}<a+c \]
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then factor \(a\) \[ \large \frac{a}{b}\cdot(b+d)<a+c \]
 2 years ago

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Thanks I think I get it now.
 2 years ago

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

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
this covers the first part :)
 2 years ago

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
is the second part different?

@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)
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the first two blanks (line 3) should be \(a\)
 2 years ago

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
ok says my 5th and 7th blanks are wrong
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
next line should be \[ \large ab+ad\qquad\text{and}\qquad a \]
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
next line should be \[ \large b+d\qquad\text{and}\qquad a \]

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
why isn't b+d divided by b
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest 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
 2 years ago

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
hmm I don't really get it
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it is this \[ \large \frac{r\cdot s}{m}=\frac{r}{m}\cdot s \]
 2 years ago

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
oh I get it not breaking the number into its prime factors
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so \[ \large \frac{ab+ad}{b}=\frac{a(b+d)}{b}=\frac{a}{b}\cdot(b+d) \]
 2 years ago

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
got it thanks
 2 years ago

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
so the final blank should be (a+c)/b+d
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the next (last) line would be \[ \large \frac{a+c}{b+d} \]
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now do the next part
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
as i told u it's very similar

znimon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
first two lines should both be c
