    Set up 4/5 = 1/10

    The left is the amount of time it takes to do the work, the right is the amount of work done right? So you want your 1/10 to equal 10/10 or 1

    \[\frac{ 4 }{ 5 } = \frac{ 1 }{ 10 }\]

    What can you do to 1/10 to make it equal to 1?

    Well if 1/10 means one part of ten, you would want to multiply it by ten

    And since we have 4/5 and 1/10 as a part of the same equation, we have to do the same thing to the left as we do to the right

    so multiply both sides by 10?

    So\[\frac{ 1 }{ 10 } \times \frac{ 10 }{ 1 } = \frac{ 4 }{ 5 } \times \frac{ 10 }{ 1 }\]

    I can offer advice, but I won't solve them all for you. Find one of the harder ones

    What is the first step needed to solve 3 over 4 the whole multiplied by x minus 3 equal negative 18? Add 3 to both sides Subtract 18 from both sides Multiply both sides by 3 Divide both sides by 4

    \[\frac{ 3 }{ 4 } x - 3 - 18\]

    i mean 3 = -18

    Then yes, it should be add 3 to both sides

    Negative signs on fractions can be pulled out. Think of it as a division problem instead of a fraction -2/3 is going to return a negative number, right?

    Two negatives and two positives both return a positive number

    2 over 3

    Nope, 2 divided by three would be positive

    If there is one negative in the equation, it will be negative, so it should be 2 over negative 3
