Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6what is 5 x 22? what is 4 x 25?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6oh hey sorry about the wait we can reduce this fraction further \[\frac{110}{100} \] what is 110 divided by 10 and what is 100 divided by 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6yes so your simplified fraction is \[\frac{11}{10} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ow do u divide fractions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6dividing fractions doesn't exist you have to flip the second fraction and you'll end up multiplying instead.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6yeah I know, but dividing fractions doesn't exist.. you have to flip the second fraction and then use multiplication. did you see the example I've drawn?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6though for this particular problem, we were just asked to simplify (as in reduce the fractions) , so \[\frac{11}{10} \] is the final answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6see this https://www.mathsisfun.com/fractions_division.html in the examples, they are flipping the second fraction and using multiplication .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6but we can't leave it like that because this fraction can be reduced by dividing both numbers by 2 dw:1439371617570:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait why did you divide by 2 on both sides

UsukiDoll
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.66 and 2 are both even numbers.... they are also divisible by 2 6 divided by 2 is 3 3 x 2 = 6 similarly 2 divided by 2 is 1 1 x 2 = 2

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6so the fraction after I reduced would be 3/1 or just 3 3 divided by 1 is just 3 that whole number

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you divide both sides by the number the two are divisible by

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.66 is divisible by 2 2 is divisible by 2 so we can divide further until we can't divide anymore 3/1 is the closest I can obtain the simplified fraction. I can't find a common divisible number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6another example is 6/18 6 is divisible by 6 18 is divisible by 6 6 divided by 6 is 1 18 divided by 6 is 3 so 6/18 in simplified for is 1/3 6 is also divisible by 3 18 is also divisible by 3 but we have to take more steps 6 divided by 3 is 2 18 divided by 3 is 6 2/6 I can simplify further 2 is divisible by 2 6 is divisible by 2 2 divided by 2 is 1 6 divided by 2 is 3 1/3 although I've obtained the same result, using smaller numbers takes too much time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6I used a bigger number and got a simplified fraction in a step vs using smaller numbers but I'm getting fractions that are still reducible, so I have to reduce further... now I took a bunch of steps. In a timed test, it's a better idea for me to use bigger numbers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it the same if you put a number in front of a fraction liike 2 1/5

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6that's a mixed number... if we want to reduce this fraction or figure out if this fraction can be reduced we need to change it into an improper fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6dw:1439372430464:dw since 11 and 5 are both prime numbers, we're done. That's the closest simplified fraction we can get.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6now we notice that the number 10 is divisible by 2 and the number 12 is divisible by 2 2 x 5 = 10 2 x 6 = 12 10 divided by 2 is 5 and 12 divided by 2 is 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.678 divided by 2 = 39   20 divided by 2 10 now we got an odd number on the numerator... we got a problem... 39 is divisible by 3 or 12 10 is divisible by 2 or 5 since none of those divisibility numbers match, we can't reduce further.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When Meriden made a cake she used a recipe calling for 3/4 cup of sugar. She was planning to make a huge cake for a family gettogether, which means that she was going to triple the recipe (three times the ingredients). How much sugar will she need?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6you have it right :) 3/4 cup of sugar is just one cake so we have to triple the recipe meaning 3/4 x 3 which is needed to make 3 cakes combined into a super cake dw:1439373846124:dw I'm going to change this improper fraction into a mixed fraction dw:1439373871640:dw
