2. Goten77

3. nwcountry

Yes:)

4. precal

|dw:1359681806094:dw|now you can finish it, just multiply by 6 to get rid of those fractions

5. nwcountry

Why or what is the rule that would tell me to multiply by 6 precal? Just so I know on the next problem like it:)

6. precal

6 is what we call LCD Least common denominator

7. precal

you could have also, used 12 but 12 is not an LCD

11. precal

you will still get the same answer but by using 12 remember to reduce answers at the end.

12. nwcountry

They say the answer is 2/3 so I am not seeing that but I should be able to figure it out with your info:) ty again!!

13. nwcountry

I'm sorry, the answer was 4/5 not 2/3, geesh! Thank you, you really helped and taught me a lot:) denise
