Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know what to do, just not good at knowing how

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, the common denominator is 20, because 10 can go into 20, and 4 can go into 20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but you cant just leave it as 3/20. for 3/4 you multiplied 5*4 to get 20. so now you must multiply 3*5 also

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what you do to the denominator you must ALWAYS do to the numerator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so now you have 15/20, correct? because 3/5 = 15 and 4/5 = 20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you must do the same to 3/10, except this time you multiplied it by two because 10*2 = 20. so now, instead of multiplying 3*5, you are going to multiply 3*2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, so you need help more on the last part? ok, so when you go to find the common denominator, you have to multiply the same number you multiplied on the bottom, to the top.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, for example, if i wanted the common denominator to be 10, and we had the fraction 2/5, you would multiply 5*2 to get 10 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well, you must also multiply 2 to the numerator (2*2) because you did that to the denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so basically, whatever you do to the bottom you must also do to the top.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, so now do what we did with 3/4 (and remember we got 15/20) now do it with 3/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1your not stupid, this certain part just may not be your strong suit, for instance my weak part in math is angle proofs and parabolas and postulates. you'll get it tho. tell me where you exactly start to drop. where exactly do you not understand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't understand MOST math. This is when i lost: so now you have 15/20, correct? because 3/5 = 15 and 4/5 = 20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you arent dividing. its not 3/5, its 3 * 5. ok, what doesnt make sense to you during that part? why i multiplied the number outcome? Like, do you know why i multiplied 3 * 5 and 4 * 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, we need to get the common denominator because you cannot currently add 3/4 + 3/10 because the denominators are different

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.120 is the least common denominator we can use.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you know why i picked 20?

ccswims

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, i picked 20 because both 4 and 10 can go into 20, right?
