Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, but you should put parens around the first two numbers (17+15)/7 because you are really doing \[ \frac{17+15}{7}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, 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
