Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I want you to do something like this (here's a different example): 6/12 = 1/2 You think: 6 goes into 6 once; 6 goes into 12 twice. So ... what's the simplest form for 7/14?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Close  you're just missing the minus sign in front: 7/14 = 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So far, this is what we have: \[\frac{7/14}{3} = \frac{1/2}{3}\] Now, we need to remember: dividing by 3 is the same as multiplying by 1/3 . Do you believe that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, \[\frac{1/2}{3} = \frac 12\cdot \frac{1}{3}\] Can you take it from here?
