ok lets use KCF. so we are going to keep the 2/9 correct?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

Now what did i say we do with the division sign?

- anonymous

@TheForgottenDogs

- anonymous

multiply

- anonymous

@KAKES1967 dont give him the answer

- anonymous

GOOD!

- anonymous

and what about the last fraction.. the 5/12

- anonymous

What do we do with that?

- anonymous

uh flip

- anonymous

GOOD!!!

- anonymous

Ok first off @pflorido I'm not going to and you don't have to tell me what to do because i know your helping him.

- anonymous

So we flip and get 12/5.. do you understand that?

- anonymous

@TheForgottenDogs

- anonymous

its 12/5 then? or what

- anonymous

im confused i majorly suck at math

- anonymous

Good job..|dw:1438889775844:dw|Ok when we allign them up we get...

- anonymous

No @TheForgottenDogs your doing good. I

- anonymous

24/45

- anonymous

I was confused too the first time i learned this.. Its a weird rule but just know whenever you dividing fraction you always need to multiply instead. Fraction cannot be divided ever! Ok?

- anonymous

PERFECT! You see that wasn't so hard.. now was it?

- anonymous

i really suck at simplifying tho

- anonymous

Ok so when you simplify you just find the common factor... so you have 24/45 So do both of them go into 2?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

i think

- anonymous

No because when you multiply by two it can only be even numbers

- anonymous

45 is an odd number correct?

- anonymous

oh yeah

- anonymous

So lets try 3...

- anonymous

|dw:1438890220598:dw|

- anonymous

So three does go into 24! 3 times 8 equal 24... but before we do anything we have to check about the 45..

- anonymous

|dw:1438890306577:dw|

- anonymous

So 3 times 15 equals 45!! So now that we knoe 3 goes into both 24 and 45 do you know what we need to do next?

- anonymous

3 x 8 = 24
3 x 15 = 45
so its 8/15

- anonymous

Wow good job! I thought you said you were bad at math :)

- anonymous
