    you would take -0.86 and divide that by 100 and then tell me what you get ?!

    then take that and put 86 over 100 and that's your answer (:

    Find the greatest common denominator and simplify

    -1/5 - 2/3 multiply the first term by 3/3. you need a common denominator to add or subtract fractions. in this case the least common denominator is 15 (-1/5)*(3/3) = -3/15 multiply the second term by 5/5 (2/3)*(5/5) = 10/15 \[\frac{-3}{15}-\frac{10}{15} = \frac{-3-10}{15} = \frac{-13}{15}\]

    now you have \[\frac{4*(2k-3h)}{4} = \frac{4}{4}*(2k-3h) = ?\]

    k and h are not multiplied they are being subtracted so you have (4/4)(2k-3h) 1*(2k-3h) (2k-3h) you cannot simplify further 2k-3h does not equal 1kh suppose you have k = 2, h = 3 2k-3h = 2*2-3*3 = 4-9 = -5 1kh = 1*2*3 = 6 // clearly not -5

    okay I have no idea how to solve this one "a bowl contains 4 red chips, 3 blue chips, and 9 green chips. your choose one a random" Find P (not red) now how would I solve this?

    P(not x) = 1-P(x)

    wait how did you figure that

    you have a total probability of 1. therefore the P(x) is something then the probability of not x is 1 minus the probability of that something.
