Andrew is showing his work in simplifying (−5.7 + 2.2) − 1.1.
Step 1: (2.2 − 5.7) − 1.1
Step 2: 2.2 − (5.7 + 1.1)
Step 3: 2.2 − (6.8)
Step 4: −4.6
Which statement is true?
In step 1, Andrew used the commutative property.
In step 2, Andrew used the distributive property.
In step 3, Andrew used the associative property.
In step 4, Andrew's answer is incorrect.

)Which statement best explains the value of 12 − (−4)?
The additive inverse of −4 is −4, so 12 − (−4) = 16.
The additive inverse of −4 is −4, so 12 − (−4) = 8.
The additive inverse of −4 is +4, so 12 − (−4) = 8.
The additive inverse of −4 is +4, so 12 − (−4) = 16.

- Vocaloid

well, when we take the additive inverse, we switch the sign
so -4 becomes +4 and 12 -(-4) becomes 12 + 4

alright, we start with 35, and take away the price of the book and magazine
using additive inverses, our equation should look like:
35 + (-price of book) + (-price of magazine)

Ryan has a shelf that is 64 over 3 inches wide. How many magazines can Ryan arrange on the shelf if each magazine is 4 over 3 inches thick?
28, because the number of magazines is 64 over 3 ÷ 4 over 3
27, because the number of magazines is 64 over 3 • 4 over 3
16, because the number of magazines is 64 over 3 ÷ 4 over 3
43, because the number of magazines is 64 over 3 ⋅ 4 over 3

- anonymous

@Vocaloid

- Vocaloid

hint: number of magazines = (width of shelf)/(thickness of magazine)

7/45

- anonymous

@Vocaloid

check your math again
rmember, when we divide two fractions, we flip the second fraction over
(3/5) / (-4/9) = (3/5)*(9/4) = ?

- Vocaloid

(3/5) / (-4/9) = (3/5)*(-9/4) = ?

- anonymous

oh! i got 27/20

- anonymous

is it negative or postitive?
