Hi! @leovaldez

ur awesome 4 helping me

- Michele_Laino

thanks!

- anonymous

sooo

- anonymous

help?

- Michele_Laino

I'm pondering...

- anonymous

kk take ur time

- anonymous

so done pondering?

- Michele_Laino

we have these quantities:
6 2/3 = 20/3 cups;
3 1/2= 7/2 cups;
4 3/4 = 19/4 cups,
so in total we have:
\[\frac{{20}}{3} + \frac{7}{2} + \frac{{19}}{4} = ...?\]
plese complete that computation

@leovaldez

- anonymous

yes?

- anonymous

and how do u simplify it?

- Michele_Laino

what is the least common multiple of 3, 2 and 4?

- anonymous

? idk

- Michele_Laino

hint:
\[\begin{gathered}
4 = {2^2} \times 1 \hfill \\
3 = 3 \times 1 \hfill \\
2 = 2 \times 1 \hfill \\
\end{gathered} \]

- Michele_Laino

you have to pick all common and uncommon factors with the highest exponent

what is the ans im tired i can't think

- anonymous

i need 2 sleep but not b 4 this work is done i have 2 more

oh im sorry i wasn't thinking see im so tired

\[\frac{{20}}{3} + \frac{7}{2} + \frac{{19}}{4} = ...? \] we can't add these fractions until they have a common denominator.

- anonymous

okkkkk

- anonymous

i did it

- anonymous

so i don't get it

- UsukiDoll

huh?

- anonymous

i added them but it needs 2 b simplifyed

- Michele_Laino

what is your result? @leovaldez

- anonymous

46 over 9

- UsukiDoll

if you're just adding numerators without finding the least common denominator....I don't believe this.

- anonymous

wat?

- UsukiDoll

I know where you got that 9 from
9 = 3+2+4
I said you can't add these fractions because they have different denominators. All of the denominators have to be the same

- anonymous

so how do i do that?

- UsukiDoll

find the least common denominator.. or you can just grab all the denominators and multiply them out.

- UsukiDoll

and then figure out what two numbers are missing for each fraction .

- anonymous

i know i sound dumb but hey im super tired it's 11:20 where i amggggggggggggggggg lyufhhhhhhhhhhhhkefhyxfyhfgeyx.fylefyglf

- UsukiDoll

and I don't want to get in trouble in front of a qualified helper.

- anonymous

sorry im awake im awake!

- Michele_Laino

@leovaldez please complete these computations:
\[\begin{gathered}
\frac{{20}}{3} = \frac{{20 \times 4}}{{3 \times 4}} = ... \hfill \\
\hfill \\
\frac{7}{2} = \frac{{7 \times 6}}{{2 \times 6}} = ... \hfill \\
\hfill \\
\frac{{19}}{4} = \frac{{19 \times 3}}{{4 \times 3}} = ... \hfill \\
\end{gathered} \]

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

there

- anonymous

did it

- Michele_Laino

what did you get?
