How do I do that ?

- AbdullahM

\(\bf\large a\frac {b}{c}=\frac {(a\times c)+b}{c}\)

- cail

Would that be possible if you just gave me the answer ? I suck at this :/

- MrNood

You will suck at this until you try to do the work yourself

- cail

I did try

- MrNood

1/5 means one FIFTH
how many 'fifths' are there in 1?

- cail

It's either b or d right ?

- AbdullahM

If you choose an answer, make sure to provide work so that way if you make a mistake we can catch it :)

- MrNood

how many 'fifths' are there in 1
when you answer that then you can work out
how many 'fifths' are there in 9?

- kalynne

make it into an improper fraction.

- cail

One ?

- AbdullahM

No...

- cail

5 ?

- MrNood

if you divide something into five parts (i.e. into 'fifths') how many oyu got?
YES its five
so in NINE things - each divided into 5 parts how many parts you got?

- AbdullahM

Ok, if you have a pie and you cut it up into 5 pieces, how many pieces are there in one pie?

- cail

5

- AbdullahM

Then how many total pieces in 9 pies?

- cail

0.5

- cail

Wait hold on

- cail

45 ?

- AbdullahM

Yes

- AbdullahM

And so 45 pieces in 9 pies, then how many in 9 3/5
Hint 45 + 3 = ?

- cail

48

- AbdullahM

So...
48/5 is the improper fraction for 9 3/5

- AbdullahM

So now, can you find the improper fraction for 2 1/5

- cail

And 11/5 for the other one ?

- AbdullahM

Correct!

- cail

Okay thanks what do I do next ?

- AbdullahM

So now the formula for dividing fractions
\(\large\bf\frac {a}{b}\div \frac {c}{d} = \frac {a}{b}\times \frac {d}{c} =\frac {ad}{bc}\)

- cail

I don't understand

- cail

Is it b ?

- AbdullahM

Just replace the variables with your numbers :)
A can be replaced by 48
B can be replaced by 5
C is replaced by 11
And d is replaced by 5

- AbdullahM

Don't forget to simplify the fractions before you multiply them.

- cail

48/5 divided by 11/5 = 48/5 x 5/11 = ?

- AbdullahM

Correct, amd you can simplify the fractions by dividing the 5 from the numerator and the denominator.

- AbdullahM

And*

I'm on my phone , so I still don't quite understand because when I did this it equally to 4.36

- cail

Equaled *

- cail

Actually I just checked right now and it said 0.72

- AbdullahM

48/5 x 5/11 = 48/11

- cail

Is it d ?

- AbdullahM

Make 48/11 into a mixed fraction.

- AbdullahM

Yes.

- cail

Okay I did so it is d. Thanks so much !!:)
