@dinosour1480 what do you think?

if you mom baked a butterpecan pie, and gave you 2/3 of it, would you be less filled than if she gave you 1/3? if you really really like butterpecan pie, what would you prefer? 2/3 or 1/3?

just think what is a fraction
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dunno

okay |dw:1370118117829:dw| not to scale how many pieces do you have in the circle
anonymous
  • anonymous
8

2/3

good now if i |dw:1370118384304:dw| now who many pieces how the WHOLE have i shaded?
anonymous
  • anonymous
1
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
1?
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1370118529438:dw| from the so you have ONE OF THE WHOLE SHADED 1/8
anonymous
  • anonymous
you shaded one out of eight

  • jdoe0001
|dw:1370118727962:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1370118667922:dw| therefore if i shade 2 TWO OF THE WHOLE 2/ 8
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 1/6 =1/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
also 3/2 would not be equal too 1/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
as you see |dw:1370118793681:dw| not to scale i do not know how many pieces there are in here but this is not the case 1/ 70 does not 1/2
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think you know what 1/2 is right? |dw:1370118960950:dw|

ok her is the question: What is the solution to \[r/2=1/3?\] A. 2/3 B. 3/2 C. 1/6 D. 6/1
anonymous
  • anonymous
you know a bit of algebra right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
alittle but i don't understand this question
anonymous
  • anonymous
isolate the variable like you would in any algebra problem
anonymous
  • anonymous
what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
just put the variable on one side
anonymous
  • anonymous
i get confuse with this sort of thing
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok what i would do i dont know about you if i see a fraction where the variable is simplify it
anonymous
  • anonymous
1/4 is 1 -4
anonymous
  • anonymous
3/4
anonymous
  • anonymous
how do you make 1/4 into a 1 what operation do you have to perform
anonymous
  • anonymous
subtraction
anonymous
  • anonymous
but then you have to do that to the other side of the equation
anonymous
  • anonymous
im getting super confused
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok multiply by the reciprocal
anonymous
  • anonymous
is it A,B,C,or D
anonymous
  • anonymous
little confusing sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
you want to keep the variable on one side r/2=1/3? ^ multiply by the reciprocal
anonymous
  • anonymous
so multiply the whole equation by the reciprocal of 1/2
anonymous
  • anonymous
it should be easier for you to solve
anonymous
  • anonymous
the answer i keep getting is not one of the options
anonymous
  • anonymous
can you show me your work?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i did 1/3 x 12=1.56
anonymous
  • anonymous
*1/2
anonymous
  • anonymous
please tell what the answer is because my mind is getting confused and messed up that it is making it harder to think
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok you are not supposed to multiply by 1/2
anonymous
  • anonymous
if you are multiplying you multiply by the reciprocal of 1/2 if you multiplying you divide by 1/2
anonymous
  • anonymous
ahhh there are to many numbers and equations in my head that i can't think strait
anonymous
  • anonymous
you have been working with me for an hour and i don't understand a single thing
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry i suck
