yep if multiplied by half
@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
okay |dw:1370118117829:dw| not to scale how many pieces do you have in the circle
|dw:1370118479023:dw| if you really really like butterpecan pie, what would you prefer? 2/3 or 1/3?
good now if i |dw:1370118384304:dw| now who many pieces how the WHOLE have i shaded?
|dw:1370118529438:dw| from the so you have ONE OF THE WHOLE SHADED 1/8
you shaded one out of eight
|dw:1370118667922:dw| therefore if i shade 2 TWO OF THE WHOLE 2/ 8
so 1/6 =1/3
also 3/2 would not be equal too 1/3
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
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
you know a bit of algebra right?
alittle but i don't understand this question
isolate the variable like you would in any algebra problem
just put the variable on one side
i get confuse with this sort of thing
ok what i would do i dont know about you if i see a fraction where the variable is simplify it
1/4 is 1 -4
how do you make 1/4 into a 1 what operation do you have to perform
but then you have to do that to the other side of the equation
im getting super confused
ok multiply by the reciprocal
is it A,B,C,or D
little confusing sorry
you want to keep the variable on one side r/2=1/3? ^ multiply by the reciprocal
so multiply the whole equation by the reciprocal of 1/2
it should be easier for you to solve
the answer i keep getting is not one of the options
can you show me your work?
i did 1/3 x 12=1.56
please tell what the answer is because my mind is getting confused and messed up that it is making it harder to think
ok you are not supposed to multiply by 1/2
if you are multiplying you multiply by the reciprocal of 1/2 if you multiplying you divide by 1/2
ahhh there are to many numbers and equations in my head that i can't think strait
you have been working with me for an hour and i don't understand a single thing
sorry i suck
