oh I see "solve for N"

lets look at teh left hand side \[(10+\frac{5}{8}+3+\frac{5}{8})+2+\frac{3}{8} \\ (10+3+2)+(\frac{5}{8}+\frac{5}{8}+\frac{3}{8})\] can you add 10 and 3 and 2 together?
anonymous
  • anonymous
of course lol 15

ok can you add 5/8 and 5/8 and 3/8?
freckles
  • freckles
\[15+(\frac{5}{8}+\frac{5}{8}+\frac{3}{8})=n+12\]
freckles
  • freckles
hint you already have the same denominator
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes and that equals ..I got 1.625 or 1.6
freckles
  • freckles
you only have to add the numerators (5+5+3)/8

oh I guess we can write in fraction form later I was trying to keep it in fraction form because the choices are written as fractions but we can go to decimals if you want then write as fraction
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't care :)
freckles
  • freckles
you don't want to write 1.6 that is an approximation
freckles
  • freckles
1.625 is correct though
freckles
  • freckles
\[15+1.625=n+12\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
I thought before that the answer was B
freckles
  • freckles
well let's find out... can you add 15 and 1.625?
anonymous
  • anonymous
16.625
freckles
  • freckles
and then subtract 12 on both sides
freckles
  • freckles
\[16.625=n+12 \\ 16.625-12=n\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
16.625-12? 4.625
freckles
  • freckles
yes 16-12 =4 so 16.625-12=4.625 so if the directions was to "solve for n" you would say 4.625 and there is only one choice above that says 4 and something if the directions say "solve for N" you would say none of these but as you said you meant to say "solve for n" :p
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 4 5/8? C
freckles
  • freckles
yes that does say 4 and something
freckles
  • freckles
5/8=.625 so 4+5/8=4.625
freckles
  • freckles
any questions?
