This is what the problem looks like. Sorry about the crooked lines... My OCD is killing me.

multiply the numerator and denominator by 60

Is this for FLVS lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes sadly.

  • anonymous
Okay so I multiply everything by 60?

Ah, I have Mr. Schwartz currently. But btw it is easier to see it as a division problem hold on a sec

Now since you see it as a division problem, find the common denominator and etc. But then again, mertsj's method works well too.

In this sort of situation, I would go about it by realising that division is the inverse of multiplication - by that, I mean that something like \[\frac{ 3 }{ 4 } \div \frac{ 5 }{ 6 } = \frac{ 3 }{ 4 } \times \frac{ 6 }{ 5 }\] All I did here was flip the fraction that I'm dividing by. So, in your situation, you can imagine that the fraction on the top is beind divided by the fraction on the bottom, so you can just multiply the fraction on the top by the inverse (flipped version) of the fraction on the bottom.

yup tommynaut is correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
so with the division equation version that i see it turns out to be like this|dw:1434938190523:dw|

Ahhh okay I gotcha. Sorry I just had a problem with my laptop or I would've replied sooner.
anonymous
  • anonymous
You know how to do these type of equation right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
So then I would just cross multiply, correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
show me the choices quickly? I just wanna double check
anonymous
  • anonymous
The choices are:
anonymous
  • anonymous
5 x over quantity x minus 8 5 x over 2 open parentheses x minus 4 close parentheses 5 open parentheses x plus 6 close parentheses over 6 open parentheses x minus 8 close parentheses open parentheses x plus 6 close parentheses open parentheses x minus 8 close parentheses over 30

c would be correct, do you know how? mertsj's is the best way to go
anonymous
  • anonymous
my way and mathstudent55's way is a bit extensive but all in all we get the same answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
Wow awesome thanks so much everyone. Yeah, I followed mertsj's steps and I got the same answer. This was part of a review and I wanted to make sure I was doing this correctly. Thanks so much everyone for helping! <3 :)
