60% less means september's rain was 40% of october's. 40% as a fraction is 2/5. Multiply the October number by 2/5

randomecorner

anonymous
  • anonymous
no reciprocal
randomecorner
  • randomecorner
but in the space its a mixed number fraction2
anonymous
  • anonymous
134/40 then reduce by dividing num & den by 2
randomecorner
  • randomecorner
both by 2?
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1433960372246:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
by 2 because that's the biggest number that goes into 134 and 40
randomecorner
  • randomecorner
but it needsto be a mixed fraction
randomecorner
  • randomecorner
so i needa whole number and a fraction
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, so turn 67/20 into a mixed number. What's the closest number to 67 that 20 divides into?
randomecorner
  • randomecorner
its62 u mean
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, 67
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait, where did you mean 62?
randomecorner
  • randomecorner
uright lol i divided wrong
randomecorner
  • randomecorner
they cant because 67 is a prime numbah
anonymous
  • anonymous
20 is the denominator. 20* 1 = 20 20*2 = 40 20*3 = 60 20*4 = 80 67 is between 60 and 80, so the whole number part is 3. Basically if you divide 67 by 20 you would get 3 with a remainder of 7.
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\frac{ 67 }{ 20 }=3\frac{ 7 }{ 20 }\]
