1/8

Nope. We multiply by 2 on the bottom so we multiply by 2 on the top. Try again

- anonymous

1/4 = 2/8
OK? Do you see how i did that?

- anonymous

1/4 = 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?

- anonymous

NOOOOO:
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?

Medal please I will give you one

btw 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
