ok so we want to divide |dw:1435146957705:dw| right?

- UsukiDoll

do you know how to change a mixed fraction into an improper fraction?

- anonymous

do you mind just giving me the answer I don't have much time

- UsukiDoll

I can't give direct answers because it is against OpenStudy's Code of Conduct.

can you like, give it to me in a way that doesn't break the rules?

- UsukiDoll

I can try but I can't guarantee it.

- UsukiDoll

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

- UsukiDoll

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.

- UsukiDoll

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

- UsukiDoll

for the first fraction |dw:1435147425986:dw|
what is 8 x 6 + 1 ?

- anonymous

42

- anonymous

jkjk

- anonymous

49

- UsukiDoll

yes so our first improper fraction is 49/6

- UsukiDoll

now what's 3 x 4 + 2 for the second fraction

- anonymous

14

- UsukiDoll

so the second improper fraction is 14/6

- anonymous

aight

- UsukiDoll

|dw:1435147581050:dw|

- UsukiDoll

now flip the second fraction...
instead of 14/6. I should have?

- anonymous

how do I do that lmao

- UsukiDoll

oh no wait. I got the denominator wrong for the second one.

- UsukiDoll

14/3

- UsukiDoll

|dw:1435147670557:dw|

- anonymous

but how do I do that

- UsukiDoll

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

- UsukiDoll

so what's the flipped version of 14/3

- anonymous

3 14

- UsukiDoll

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

- UsukiDoll

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

- UsukiDoll

|dw:1435147886573:dw| now you can multiply. Can you tell me what the answer is?

- anonymous

uhm

- UsukiDoll

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

- anonymous

so its 2 1/2?

- UsukiDoll

umm... ok first what's 49 x 1?

- anonymous

49 lol

- UsukiDoll

and what is 14 x 2?

- anonymous

28

- UsukiDoll

|dw:1435148038259:dw| yup that's the improper fraction. Are you required to change it back into a mixed fraction?

- UsukiDoll

because if not we can leave it like this

- UsukiDoll

wait we can reduce lol just divide 49/7 and 28/7. what are they

- anonymous

1 and 4

- UsukiDoll

the second one is correct
what is 49 /7 ?

- UsukiDoll

|dw:1435148158731:dw|

- anonymous

1

- UsukiDoll

what is 7 x 7 ?

- anonymous

14

- anonymous

49

- anonymous

my bad

- UsukiDoll

mhm! 49 / 7 gives back 7

- UsukiDoll

|dw:1435148213689:dw|

- UsukiDoll

so for mixed fraction form we just divide 4 by 7

- UsukiDoll

|dw:1435148238269:dw|

- UsukiDoll

and we're done :)

- anonymous

I knew it man

- anonymous
