    @mathhard, you ever heard of equivalent fractions? If someone says to you that \[\frac{2}{5} = \frac{4}{10}\] What goes through your mind?

    Common denominatorfor them would be 20. Mulitply 1/4 by 5 and 2/5 by 4. Then add and simplify.

    @mathhard According to the OpenStudy Terms of Services, you must be 13+ and currently enrolled in a High School/University, OR you must be 18+. The full statement is outlined in the ToS here, under the Eligibility section: http://openstudy.com/terms-and-conditions You are currently violating the OpenStudy Terms of Use, and since that your attitude has not been great towards users, they have the option to report your account for ToS violation. Just saying ;)

    Frankly, this is stupid, you can't tell how old users are behind computer. How can you tell if they are younger than 13?

    @karatechopper "Wow, an 18 year old not being able to do a fraction problem...." It reminds me of this movie called "Stand and Deliver." Pretty good movie, I suggest you to watch it.
