Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can look at the numerator as being in parentheses and then divided by the bottom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Next you have to follow from left to right in the numerator... so you do multiplication first. Multiplying 5*6 you get 30

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But if the problem I just posted is correct you don't have the answer listed because it would be a decimal. Can you check to be sure that what I posted is actually your problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do you multiply from a fraction?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then addition left to right....\[29\frac{ 6 }{ 3 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1last we need to subtract, but our first number is not a fraction..... how do we change it? To add or subtract fractions we must have a common denominator.... in this case that denominator is 3..... we can multiply the first number 29 by \[\frac{ 3 }{ 3 }\] because this is just the number one. Multiplying by one does not change the value of the number but it does change what it looks like...\[\frac{ 3 }{ 3 }*29  \frac{ 6 }{ 3 } = \frac{ 87 }{ 3 }\frac{ 6 }{ 3 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[ \frac{ 87 }{ 3 }\frac{ 6 }{ 3 } = \frac{ 876 }{ 3 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Its really a matter of looking at the whole problem and deciding what takes precedence.... parentheses, then if there aren't any whats next... exponents... then multiplication or division (whichever comes first left to right meaning multiplication doesn't come before division unless it shows up first left to right), then addition or subtraction (whichever comes first left to right). and your done :) good luck
