Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/4 = 2/8 OK? Do you see how i did that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/4 = 2/8 so what most likley what you did was you multiply to the top 2 so it can go exact with the bottom gettting the answer by divide 1/4 / 2/8 which is 1/2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0NOOOOO: Ok so now it takes one month for his hair to grow 2/8 inches. We need to find how many months it takes to grow 5/8. 2/8 *2 = 4/8. So we need 1/8 more. It has been two months so It will take 2 and a 1/2 months to grow 5/8 inches (answer) got it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0btw to get a common denominator you just multiply the same for the the numerator and the denominator. Example: 3/9 = x/18 9*2 = 18 3*2 = 6 New fraction: 3/9 = 6/18
