convert each fraction to a decimal number and that will allow you to compare the numbers easier

for example 1/30 = 0.0333333... 1/15 = 0.0666667 So we can see that 1/15 is larger than 1/30 since 0.0666667 is larger than 0.033333

Do you know anything about this?

that's the combination of choosing 7 things out of 9 basically it's asking "how many ways are there to choose 7 items out of 9 where order does not matter"

Jovanmommy_13Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I don't understand, cause the choices are A.66 B.55 C.36 D.45

have you learned about permutations?

Jovanmommy_13Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no , this is online math,

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I figured that, but I would have also figured that you have learned about permutations or combinations by now

seems odd how they skipped over that

well luckily we can take advantage of the fact that 9 C 7 = 9 C 2 9 C 2 = (9*8)/2 = ???
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so 9 C 7 = 36 as well

you can also use Pascals triangle to get the same thing

what about this? If a probability distribution is 5/12,1/6 ,1/4 , x, what is the value of x? A.1/3 B.1/6 C.1/12 D.1/4

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
add up all the fractions including x and set it equal to 1 then solve for x
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
5/12 + 1/6 + 1/4 + x = 1 solve this for x

what do you get when you combine these fractions 5/12 + 1/6 + 1/4
 one year ago

Jovanmommy_13Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i don't know , cause they have different numbers do i need them both to get 12?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes you need all the denominators to be equal to 12
 one year ago

Jovanmommy_13Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you multiply 6 with 2 and 4 with 3 ,
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
5/12 = 5/12 1/6 = 2/12 1/4 = 3/12  5/12 + 1/6 + 1/4 is the same as 5/12 + 2/12 + 3/12

10/12 reduced to 5/6?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
we're not done yet
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but we're on the right path to getting there

okay whats next?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
5/12 + 1/6 + 1/4 + x = 1 is the same as 5/6 + x = 1 Now subtract 5/6 from both sides to isolate x 5/6 + x  5/6 = 1  5/6 x = 1  5/6 x = ???

Jovanmommy_13Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
4/6 reduced to 2/3? but that not on there either?
