Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2changed mixed numbers to improper fractions

akhaliq99

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so (23/5)(5/2)=(46/10)(25/10)=71/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok multiply 5 by 4 and then add 3 for first fraction to get 23/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 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

akhaliq99

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you get the numerator that way over the same denominator

Benbburn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so like x(a/b) = (bx+a)/b

akhaliq99

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do same for second fraction to end up with improper fractions

twitch

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I have to find the common denominator before anythiing

Benbburn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i would get them to imporper fractions before common denominators

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes then find common denominator if it is not already there.

akhaliq99

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2first. convert mixed number to improper fraction second. get common denominator if needed third. solve

twitch

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so it should be 12/5 2/2

twitch

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then the denominators should be 10 right

akhaliq99

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no \[4 \frac{ 3 }{ 5 }\]

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because 5*4 is 20 and then add 3 to get 23

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that is new numerator

akhaliq99

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and denominator stays the same

twitch
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh okay so let me try again

akhaliq99

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2look at this http://www.mathplayground.com/fractions_mixed.html

akhaliq99

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes thats right but dont forget the minus signs

twitch
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay the 23/5 would be negative right ?

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because 4(3/5) was negative

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the number is the same just converted to make it easier to do computations

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2type in calculator and see you get the same number

twitch
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(23/5) 5/2 and the common denominator would be ten right

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2also 5 goes into 23 4 times plus some remainder which is the fraction

twitch
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so were do i go from there

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2just subtract the numerators and get the solution

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the denominator stays the same so 71/10

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when you multiplied to get common denominator what did you get?

twitch
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I did'nt multipy anything

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do u see how I got that

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2multiply 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

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh sorry I wrote that wrong ignore it

akhaliq99
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so 23/5 by 2/2 and 5/2 by 5/5

twitch

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.071/10 right and that can be simplified
