JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Ok, well, let's think about the idea before we work with the numbers. What operation do we need to do to get cups/serving?
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
divistion?
JoannaBlackwelder

Multiply the base by the whole number and add to the numerator.
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
oh ok
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Then we need to divide by the 7 servings.

We can write the denominator as a fraction|dw:1439587860937:dw|
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Since any number is itself over 1. You with me?
trwatkins1
  • trwatkins1
yep
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Sweet. Then we use this formula:|dw:1439587922549:dw|

Very close. Notice that c/d become d/c when it changes to multiplication.

texaschic101

reduce 7/42 by dividing both numbers by 7. Now what do you get ?
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Divide top and bottom by common factors

Like @texaschic101 said :-)
