hint: add the two numbers up, then divide that sum by 2

I got 4/7 but I'm not sure if I did it right.

Umm okay thank you

can you show me how you got 4/7?

I did what you said to do by taking the numbers and adding them together, after I added the numbers together I got 4/7. But I probably did some math wrong

the number 1 can be thought of as 6/6 since 6/6 = 1 this means that 1 + 5/6 is really the same as 6/6 + 5/6 with me so far?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay so then would I add the 5/6 and 6/6 together?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
correct, how would you do that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You would only add the 5 and 6 together, right?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
correct, you add the numerators and place that over the common denominator of 6

  • anonymous
Okay so would the final answer be 11/6?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
now cut that in half or multiply that by 1/2
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
11/6 * 1/2 = ???
anonymous
  • anonymous
Would the denominator would be three?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
no, you don't divide 6 by 2 to get 3
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay.. So do I divide the whole fraction by a 1/2 somehow?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
to multiply 11/6 by 1/2, you multiply the numerators together and the denominators together multiply numerators: 11*1 = 11 multiply denominators: 6*2 = 12 So 11/6 * 1/2 = 11/12
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
that means the number 11/12 is halfway between 1 and 5/6
