this is the problem right? \[\Large 60 \frac{5}{6}+54 \frac{1}{3}+56 \frac{1}{6}+59 \frac{1}{3}\]

so notice how all of the fractions have either 3 or 6 in the denominator
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
the first step is to get all of the denominators the same
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
get all of the denominators equal to 6
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
how would you do that to 1/3 ?

very good

so we can say... \[\Large 60 \frac{5}{6}+54 \frac{1}{3}+56 \frac{1}{6}+59 \frac{1}{3}\] \[\Large 60 +\frac{5}{6}+54 +\frac{1}{3}+56 +\frac{1}{6}+59 +\frac{1}{3}\] \[\Large 60 +\frac{5}{6}+54 +\frac{2}{6}+56 +\frac{1}{6}+59 +\frac{2}{6}\] do you see how to finish up?

Not sure

you can add up the whole parts to get 60+54+56+59 = 229

what do you get when you add up the fractional parts?

Oh i get it thanks for the help

So the answer should be B
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
the fractional parts need to be accounted for
