## ikoreanx3 3 years ago 5+1/2 multiply 5+1/2

1. lgbasallote

do you mean $\huge 5 + \frac 12 \times 5 + \frac 12$

2. ikoreanx3

yes

3. lgbasallote

hint: according to PEMDAS multiply 1/2 x 5 first

4. ikoreanx3

No. 5/1/2

5. lgbasallote

what is the original question?

6. ikoreanx3

|dw:1346465714157:dw|

7. lgbasallote

you sure? the question wasn't originally $\huge 5 + \frac 12 \times 5 + \frac 12?$ because those are two different things...

8. ikoreanx3

nope

9. ikoreanx3

It is how I drew it.

10. lgbasallote

well then change both to improper fractions first $\huge \implies \frac{11}2 \times \frac{11}2$ do you now what to do now?

11. ikoreanx3

121/4?

12. lgbasallote

yes

13. lgbasallote

now change it to mixed fraction to see something cool

14. ikoreanx3

UH O.O I got.. 32.5

15. ikoreanx3

cause I am unsure of my answer.

16. lgbasallote

hmm you divided wrong...

17. lgbasallote

anyway 121/4 is right

18. ikoreanx3

oh I thought I needed to simply it.

19. ikoreanx3

How do I round it to the nearest integer?

20. lgbasallote

you mean turn it into a mixed fraction?

21. ikoreanx3

Find the estimated answer by rounding each mixed number to the nearest integer and then multiplying the integers

22. lgbasallote

i have no idea sorry

23. ikoreanx3

It's okay.
