Start off by dividing both 12 and 32 by 2. What do you get?

12 divided by 2 is 6 and 32 divided by 2 is 16 so my answer is 6/16 right cause that is what I put as my answer

- haleyelizabeth2017

Nope...they can both be divided by 2 still...

- rainbow_rocks03

but i didnt submit it yet

- rainbow_rocks03

ok

- rainbow_rocks03

so 6/2=3 and 16/2=8 which is 3/8

- haleyelizabeth2017

Yes!

- rainbow_rocks03

so that is my answer

- haleyelizabeth2017

correct.

- rainbow_rocks03

- haleyelizabeth2017

17/4 as a mixed number?

- rainbow_rocks03

@haleyelizabeth2017

- haleyelizabeth2017

hmmm...how many times does 4 go into 17?

- haleyelizabeth2017

Er...what is 16/4?

- rainbow_rocks03

16/4 is 16 over 4 it is an improper fraction

- rainbow_rocks03

and 4 can go into 17 4 times

- haleyelizabeth2017

I know. so, what is 17-16?

- rainbow_rocks03

is that a minus?

- haleyelizabeth2017

yes

- rainbow_rocks03

ok thought so then it is 1

- haleyelizabeth2017

Right. So we are left with \[4 \frac{1}{4}\]Do you understand how I got that?

- rainbow_rocks03

not really

- rainbow_rocks03

kinda though

- haleyelizabeth2017

Since 4 can go into 17 4 times, that's a whole number. Since it doesn't divide evenly, we have 1 left over (1/4)

- rainbow_rocks03

the 17-16= the 1 and 4 can go into 17 4 times

- rainbow_rocks03

ohh

- haleyelizabeth2017

Yep!

- rainbow_rocks03

but can you explain the whole thing of how to do it plz?

- rainbow_rocks03

and TY SOOO much for helping me.

- haleyelizabeth2017

You're welcome! But that's all there is to explain....16/4=4 17-16 = 1
4 1/4

- rainbow_rocks03

yeah thats how i wanted to see it...TY again!!!! :D

- haleyelizabeth2017

:)

- rainbow_rocks03

just one more plz?

- rainbow_rocks03

is 6/3 less than more than or equal to 10/15 ?

- rainbow_rocks03

@haleyelizabeth2017

- rainbow_rocks03

sorry if i am asking for to much. :(

- haleyelizabeth2017

multiply 6/3 by 1/5...I think

- haleyelizabeth2017

or 5/5

- haleyelizabeth2017

so 30/15? it's larger

- rainbow_rocks03

so which one is greater then the other?

- rainbow_rocks03

or are they equal?

- haleyelizabeth2017
