let x be that number, its 2 1/8 away from A (and A is at 2) so, x-A = 2 1/8 or A-x = 2 1/8 can you get 2 possible values of x from here first ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x-2=17/8 right?

similarly, x is 1 7/8 away from B (and B is at 6) so x-B = 1 7/8 or B-x = 1 7/8 find 2 possible values of x from here too, and your answer will be the value of x common to both ....
hartnn
  • hartnn
A=2 x-2 = 2 1/8 B=6 6-x = 1 7/8 see whether u get same x for these 2

I am sorry, I am a bit confused :(

where is A sitting on number line ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
on 2
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
u want to find a number thats \(2\frac{1}{8}\) away from A, right ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
simply add \(2\frac{1}{8}\) to 2
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
\(2 + 2\frac{1}{2}\)
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
simplify
anonymous
  • anonymous
is 2,875 the correct answer?
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
nope , how did u get it ?
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
it will be greater than 4 for sure
anonymous
  • anonymous
4,125 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am so sorry for disturbing you and thank you for your patience
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
nope. its okay :)
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
\(2 + 2\frac{1}{2} \) i want you simplify above, instead of making wild guesses lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
is it \[2 + 2 \frac{ 1 }{ 2 } or 2 + 2 \frac{ 1 }{8 } ?\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
because in the question it is 2 1/8
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
oops ! you're right
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
4.125 is correct !!! sorry i was chasing after 2 1/2 uh
anonymous
  • anonymous
no worries!! Thank you! Can you help me continue :(
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
ha sure, ask..
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's the same problem just continuing it, for B I got the same answer, but negative
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am not sure if its right
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
for B, u need to subtract
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes 1 7/8 -6
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
B is at 6, and u want a number that 1 7/8 away from it
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
u need to do 6 - 1 7/8
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got -4,125
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
yea, take the positive value oly
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
u should get both values same.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes I got both values same
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
good :) 4.125 is same as 4 1/8
anonymous
  • anonymous
But I am not sure what the answer is...
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh!! ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
THanks a lot!!!! for everything
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
