• This Question is Closed
1. kris2685

you start*

2. znimon

What is that period supposed to be?

3. kris2685

multiply

4. surdawi

x/x=1

5. ajit.shirsat

=1

6. znimon

so the problem looks like this: $17 \times 24/(17 \times 24)$

7. znimon

?

8. znimon

Does the problem you are having a question about look like the one I just posted?

9. ajit.shirsat

yes...

10. znimon

Well it's a good habit to use order of operations when solving. In this case parenthesis then multiplication/division, but since the problem is in the form x/x and x does not equal zero the the answer is 1.

11. ajit.shirsat

then it's r8..ok ?
