anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
dan815
  • dan815
say you have a bag of cookies
dan815
  • dan815
there are 40 cookies in this bag
dan815
  • dan815
and you got friends over, and seeing as you are such a good friend, u want to share your cookies with them
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
dan815
  • dan815
so all your friends have 2 hands, and u put 1 cookie each hand of theirs
dan815
  • dan815
by the time you finish giving them all 2 cookies, ur done... your bag of cookies are done.. how many friends do you have?
anonymous
  • anonymous
but do i get any cookies or gust them?
dan815
  • dan815
just them =[
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
20 friends
dan815
  • dan815
awesome!!
dan815
  • dan815
okay now lets do your question..
dan815
  • dan815
which has absolutely nothing to do with the cookie question, i just had to see if you can keep up with reading
dan815
  • dan815
lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
dan815
  • dan815
so lets see whats going on , when ever you see a question always visualize it
dan815
  • dan815
now you have 40 cups of soup!
dan815
  • dan815
and you can only pour 2/3rd of each cup into a bowl
dan815
  • dan815
how many bowls can you fill with 40 cups of soup!
dan815
  • dan815
we must see how many 2/3 rds are there in 40 cups
dan815
  • dan815
because 2/3rd = 1 bowl
dan815
  • dan815
the number of 2/3rds in 40 cups = number of bowl you will fill
dan815
  • dan815
can you solve this equation
dan815
  • dan815
have you done algebra yet
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes but it is hard for me
dan815
  • dan815
okay nvm that algebra is needlely complicating then
dan815
  • dan815
look at this simple question
dan815
  • dan815
40 cookies and u give 2 cookies out to each person how many persons can u give to then
anonymous
  • anonymous
20
dan815
  • dan815
okay what did u do in your mind there?
dan815
  • dan815
you said 2 * what = 40 right
dan815
  • dan815
or maybe you said 40/2 = what
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
dan815
  • dan815
thinking like this is the same 2*what=40 is the same thing as saying 40/what = 2 or 40/2=what?
dan815
  • dan815
thats all x really is lol! x is just that what!
dan815
  • dan815
anyway moving on now say you have 40 cookies, but u wanna give out 2/3rd of a cookie to each person, how many persons can u give to
dan815
  • dan815
remember how you did for 2 cookies a person 2*what=40 what = 20 or 40/2=what? what = 20 now lets do this for 2/3 2/3 * what = 40?? or 40/(2/3) = what??

ask your parents to teach you about fractions
dan815
  • dan815
20/(1/2) = 40 this is the same as 20/0.5!!
