thanks... what about 7 over 14x

just think about normally trying to break down fractions.

We can also plug in for x.

\[\frac{7}{14 * 2}\]
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes, correct. Now what is \[\frac{7}{14 * 2}\]
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then solve \[\frac{1}{2 * 2}\]

just remember if it's a bigger # on the bottom, then the bigger number stays.

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
also remembe you can plug in any number to solve. As we see by plugging in 2 we get the same answer both ways.

remember also that simplifying techniques are the same all over, just need to know the situations. Ratios, as above can be tricky if you dont' think about it.

how would I solve 4xy over 0.25x
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
are you making this one up?

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
or is it a legit Q?

lexiameeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no it is one of my questions for work.
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I guess we woudl just cancel out.

\[\frac{4xy}{0.25x}\] \[\frac{4y}{0.25}\]
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
always important to see what is in both denom and numerator. Cancelling is HUGE later on in math.

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now how many times does 0.25 go into 4?
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
....... count it out. what's .25 x 2?
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yup, nowhow much is 4?
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
or now that you know 0.5 you could do 0.5 x # = 4? then double it.
 one year ago

KonradZuseBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay.... 0.25 x 2 = 0.50 0.25 x # = 4???? (0.25 x 2 = 0.50) x # = 4??
