Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have three small denominators. First, find their LCD. What is the LCD of 5, 6, and 3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you start by finding a common denominator for the numerator part of the fraction. Everything will be over the denominator 1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i solved the top part first (numerator). I did not touch the denominator 1/3 at all. after I have found \[\frac{ 6m5 }{ 30 }\] I proceeded to use the fraction rules: If you are dividing by a fraction, (1/3) YOU INVERT THE DENOMINATOR, hence , 1/3 becomes 3/1, so I had \[\frac{ \frac{ 6m5 }{ 30} }{ \frac{ 1 }{ 3 } }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@MERTICH has a great answer. Here is another way of solving it. Find the LCD of the three small denominators. It is 30. Multiply the numerator and denominator of the large fraction by the LCD, 30 dw:1434144517659:dw
