    Is there any parenthesis in this problem ?

    is this \[ \frac{a+b}{q}\] or \[ a + \frac{b}{q} \]

    this is just a matter of substitution and solving....not really that hard

    ok, but you should put parens around the first two numbers (17+15)/7 because you are really doing \[ \frac{17+15}{7}\]

    you can write the answer a few ways. If this is multiple choice, then write it to match one of the choices. otherwise you can keep it an improper fraction or write it as a mixed number 4 4/7 (that is 4 and 4/7)

    this is how the equation is show|dw:1443452450868:dw|

    but your resulting answer can be written in more then 1 way...it can be left as an improper fraction of 32/7....or it can be changed to a mixed number 4 4/7

    yes, and that means (a+b)/q which can also be written as \[ \frac{a}{q}+\frac{b}{q}\] that might be confusing, but it is the same as adding two fractions with the same denominator either way you will get 4 and 4/7
