Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0umm well take it one step at a time \[\frac{ 9 }{ 10 }  \frac{ 3 }{ 5 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2bring all like terms together you have 2 types here  terms in m and numbers so we have (7/8) m  2m + 9 /10  3/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2to work out the terms in m first calculate 7/8  2 which by making everything in denominator 8 is 7/8  16/8 = 9/8 so the first 2 terms work out to (9/8) m or 9 m  8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now you can work out + 9/10  3/5 by converting the 3/4 to something / 10  can you do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I'm just going to start over, First thing to do is create a common denominator between 9/10 and 3/5 To do this we want to get the lowest number on the bottom we can, 10 can not get lower so 5 has to go up To make 10, 5 needs to get multiplied by 2 and whatever we do to the bottom we must do to the top (3x2)/(5x2) =?/?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if i am correct it would be 15/2 or 15/4 right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(3x2)/(5x2) =?/? For this? Or are you talking for the 9/103/5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03x2=6 5x2= 10 Therefore the fraction is 6/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now that we have created a common denominator we can then do (9/10)(6/10)=? Which is the same as saying (96)/10=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the complete answer would be 3/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For that part yes but now we need to look at the ones that have the variable m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So we have (7/8)m and 2m Let's just ignore the ms for now so that we can get the common denominator So 7/8 and 2 (this can also be 2/1) To get the bottom numbers to be the same the lowest common denominator is 8 So (2x8)/(1x8)=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But all you have to do is this (2x8)/(1x8)=? (7/8)(16/8)= ?/? Since we ignored the m we have to put it back in and there will be the m So your answer will look like ?m/? Now you take the number with the variable m and add 3/10 as we had found that before So it'll be ?m/? + 3/10
