so like I did kinda?
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
Ok hod on
yeah! :) Do you know how did i converted them from mixed to improper though? :o
Yes I actually did that myself I didn't see your answers til' I finished :)
exactly! now just subtract the numerators and turn it back into a mixed number :)
okay, now turn it back to a mixed number if it's asked :)
No it's not asked. So I would leave it like that?
6 35/6
ummm, i guess you should turn it back into a mixed number since the problem was given to you as a mixed number
mmm, no. the your answer for the mixed number is incorrect
oh thanks
your final answer would be \[5 \frac{ 5 }{ 6}\]
or, just ignore the fraction first, add the whole numbers then add the fractions.
um okk........
converting them to improper form is unnecessary and tedious. just do (15-9) + [(1/3) - (1/2)]
Algebraically, you can say: let a = first constant let b = first fraction let c = second constant let d = second fraction (a-c) + (b-d)
ok but wouldn't you have to make 1/3 and 1/2 make the denominators 6
