so like I did kinda?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no. make them improper fractions by taking away the whole number. So the first mixed number would turn into 46/3 and the second one would turn into 19/2

  • anonymous
Ok hod on

Yes I actually did that myself I didn't see your answers til' I finished :)
anonymous

Right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, now turn it back to a mixed number if it's asked :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
No it's not asked. So I would leave it like that?

6 35/6
anonymous
  • anonymous
ummm, i guess you should turn it back into a mixed number since the problem was given to you as a mixed number
anonymous
  • anonymous
mmm, no. the your answer for the mixed number is incorrect
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh thanks
anonymous
  • anonymous
your final answer would be \[5 \frac{ 5 }{ 6}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
or, just ignore the fraction first, add the whole numbers then add the fractions.
anonymous
  • anonymous
um okk........
anonymous
  • anonymous
converting them to improper form is unnecessary and tedious. just do (15-9) + [(1/3) - (1/2)]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Algebraically, you can say: let a = first constant let b = first fraction let c = second constant let d = second fraction (a-c) + (b-d)
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok but wouldn't you have to make 1/3 and 1/2 make the denominators 6
