Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0great, also note that : \[4\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }=\frac{ 9 }{ 2 }\] what about \[2\frac{ 7 }{ 8 }\] ? can you take it to a full fraction form? how many eighths would that be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0great! so we have: \[\frac{ 9 }{ 2 } + \frac{ 23 }{ 8 }\] what now? common denominator?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets rewrite the first fraction: \[\frac{ 9 }{ 2 } = \frac{ 9\times 4 }{ 2 \times 4 } = \frac{ 36 }{ 8 }\] now we have the same denominator :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then we do 36/823/8=13/8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well we can't, but we can take eight eighths to make a whole, and we are left still five eighths... can you translate that to numbers and fractions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0look: \[\frac{ 13 }{ 8 } = \frac{ 8+5 }{ 8 }=\frac{ 8 }{ 8 }+\frac{ 5 }{ 8 }=1\frac{ 5 }{ 8 }\]
