    yeah it's written in stone "Don't devalue the question/answer process! Don't provide someone with just the answer - explain the process, and help guide them through understanding the problem.

    I was asking if you knew how to change a mixed fraction into an improper fraction

    division for fractions don't exist.. all fraction problems that ask for division require the second fraction to be flipped and multiplication is being used instead.

    that's why for this problem it's easier to convert the mixed fraction into an improper fraction.. and then flip the second fraction

    so I flip the second fraction.. for example my second fraction is 15/6 .. if I flip it it's 6/15

    mhm that second fraction is no longer in the denominator and now we use multiplication |dw:1435147808629:dw|

    before we multiply we notice that we have numbers we can reduce

    3/3 = 1 6/3 = 2 that's why I reduced and to make multiplication easy ^^
