Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ a1 }{ 8 }\frac{ 3(a4) }{ 10 }=\frac{ 2a+4 }{ 5 }\] Your denominators are 8, 10 and 5. What's the smallest number that is divisible by all 3 (lcd)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.080's not the smallest, but it will still work :) You need to multiply each of the fractions by 80 so the denominators will cancel when you reduce. \[\frac{ 80(a1) }{ 8 }\frac{ (80)(3)(a4) }{ 10 }=\frac{ 80(2a+4) }{ 5 }\]
