how
freckles

hint:3 and 8 both go into 24
anonymous
  • anonymous
then you change both of the denominator too 24
freckles
  • freckles
yes but whatever you multiply the bottoms to get that 24 you will also have to multiply that same number to the top
freckles
  • freckles
example" \[\frac{1}{3} =\frac{1 \cdot 8 }{3 \cdot 8}=\frac{8}{24}\]
freckles

you write the other fraction as some number over 24

\[\frac{5}{8}=\frac{5 \cdot ?}{8 \cdot ?}=\frac{-}{24}\]

\[\frac{5}{8} =\frac{ 5 \cdot 3}{8 \cdot 3}=\frac{15}{24}\] right
freckles

\[(\frac{1}{3}+\frac{5}{8}) \frac{4}{5} \\ (\frac{8}{24}+\frac{15}{24})\frac{4}{5} \\ (\frac{8+15}{24})\frac{4}{5}\]
freckles
  • freckles
now find the sum of 8 and 15
freckles
  • freckles
then when done you can reduce then multiply or multiply then reduce
anonymous

well 8 does not go into 15
freckles
  • freckles
why are you dividing 15 by 8?

|dw:1441049136428:dw| which should make sense since if you start with 8 apples and you are given 15 more apples then you should have 23 apples.

\[(\frac{1}{3}+\frac{5}{8}) \frac{4}{5} \\ (\frac{8}{24}+\frac{15}{24})\frac{4}{5} \\ (\frac{8+15}{24})\frac{4}{5} \\ \frac{23}{24} \cdot \frac{4}{5} \\ \frac{4}{24} \cdot \frac{23}{5} \text{ multiplication is commuative }\] cam you reduce 4/24?
