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

    but I have like 20 more of those to answer so I was hopeing somebody can show me the steps so I can copy the procedure on the other problems

    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
    • one year ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    you get the numerator that way over the same denominator

  15. Benbburn

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

  16. akhaliq99

    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.

  20. akhaliq99

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

  21. twitch

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

  22. twitch
    • one year ago

    then the denominators should be 10 right

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

  24. akhaliq99

    becomes 23/5

    how did you get 23

  26. akhaliq99
    • one year ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 2

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

  27. akhaliq99
    • one year ago

    that is new numerator

  28. akhaliq99

    and denominator stays the same

    yes thats right but dont forget the minus signs

  33. twitch

    okay the 23/5 would be negative right ?

    yes

  35. akhaliq99

    because 4(3/5) was negative

    the number is the same just converted to make it easier to do computations

    type in calculator and see you get the same number

  38. twitch

    -(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

    -46/10-25/10=-71/10

    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
