You would have to divide the cups by the number of servings. \[2 \frac{ 1 }{ 4 }\div9\]

and how would i divide it?..

I'd start with changing 2ΒΌ to an improper fraction. Do you know how to do that?

So you need to do (2 * 4) + 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay so that answer is 9
anonymous
  • anonymous
right, and then we keep the denominator the same, so \[2\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }=\frac{ 9 }{ 4 }\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
and the division problem is now \[\frac{ 9 }{ 4 }\div 9\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
This is how we divide fractions
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay !
anonymous
  • anonymous
Keep, change, flip |dw:1441193802105:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
so we'll have \[\frac{ 9 }{ 4 }\times \frac{ 1 }{ 9 }\]

  • anonymous
okay..im slowly starting to get this..
anonymous
  • anonymous
the 9 on top cancels the 9 on bottom. What will be left?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the first fraction and the one
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, so how would you write that as a single fraction?
anonymous
  • anonymous
just 9/4, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
remember, the 9s cancel, so they're not there anymore|dw:1441194199700:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
make sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
yes 1/4
anonymous
  • anonymous
