## mariposa1415 3 years ago Simplify. Show your work. 5 1/3 +(-3 9/18)

1. jhonyy9

first 9/18 = 1/2 ok ?

2. jhonyy9

than 5 1/3 = (5*3 +1)/3 = 16/3 can you continue it ?

3. mariposa1415

nop i never learn how to that

4. mariposa1415

well 16/3 is 5.33 how i put i a fracion

5. jhonyy9

and now you need to transform the second fraction in form of the first can you make it ?

6. jhonyy9

-3 1/2 =

7. jhonyy9

inside parantheses there are -3 9/18 yes ?

8. jhonyy9

so but you can simplifie there by 9 and will get -3 1/2 ok ?

9. mariposa1415

5 1/3 = 16 /3

10. mariposa1415

-3 9/18= -45/18

11. jhonyy9

yes than -3 1/2 = how many will be ?

12. jhonyy9

13. mariposa1415

16/3 + -45/18 and what i need to do next

14. jhonyy9

wha -45/18 you can working more easy with 1/2 nope ?

15. mariposa1415

so i need to change -45 /18 to 1/2

16. jhonyy9

no there are -3 1/2 =

17. mariposa1415

what happend if i work w -45/18

18. mariposa1415

-5

19. mariposa1415

hey

20. jhonyy9

not is right

21. mariposa1415

16/3 + -45/18 = -29/6

22. mariposa1415

iam wrong

23. mariposa1415

or -29/18

24. mariposa1415

i am right or not

25. mariposa1415

5 1/3 +(-3 9/18) = 5 1/3 - 3 9/18 = 16/3 - 63/18 = 32/6 - 21/6 = 11/6 = 1 5/6

26. jhonyy9

5 1/3 = 16/3 - 3 9/18 = -3 1/2 = - 7/2 16/3 - 7/2 = (2*16 - 7*3)/6 =(32-21)/6 = 11/6 yes you are right

27. jhonyy9

good luck bye
