    so -(23/5)-(5/2)=-(46/10)-(25/10)=-71/10

    ok multiply 5 by 4 and then add 3 for first fraction to get -23/5

    the quickest way to think about it is to multiply the denominator by the whole number the add the numerator. the get common denominators before anyting else

  14. akhaliq99

    you get the numerator that way over the same denominator

  15. Benbburn

    so like x(a/b) = (bx+a)/b

    do same for second fraction to end up with improper fractions

  17. twitch

    so I have to find the common denominator before anythiing

    i would get them to imporper fractions before common denominators

  19. akhaliq99

    yes then find common denominator if it is not already there.

    first. convert mixed number to improper fraction second. get common denominator if needed third. solve

    okay so it should be 12/5 -2/2

  22. twitch

    then the denominators should be 10 right

    no \[4 \frac{ 3 }{ 5 }\]

  26. akhaliq99
    • 3 years ago

    because 5*4 is 20 and then add 3 to get 23

  27. akhaliq99

    okay the 23/5 would be negative right ?

    -(23/5) -5/2 and the common denominator would be ten right

    also 5 goes into 23 4 times plus some remainder which is the fraction

    multiply top and bottom for -23/5 by 10 and then multiply top and bottom of 25/10 by 2 to get 46/10 and 25/10
