Hi

2. anonymous

and the question is ?

3. B.R

Hello. I have a question; What is the sum?

4. anonymous

31 over 20

5. anonymous

Or it could be 1 11/20

6. anonymous

you want mixed number or simplified form?

7. B.R

I got 31 / 20 too.

8. anonymous

$\frac{ 31 }{ 20}$

9. B.R

Simplified.

10. anonymous

then it would be 1 11/20

11. B.R

Oh! Can you explain why tho?

12. anonymous

you have 31 over 20, how many times does 20 go into 31 evenly?

13. anonymous

Well 20 (20 is your denominator) goes into 31 (31 is your numerator) only one time... So, that one time that 20 goes into 31 would be the 1 you see in front of your fraction. Then, if you subtract 20 from 31, there is 11 left and that would be your new numerator, 11 is a prime number so you cannot simplify it anymore. Does that make sense?

14. B.R

Oh! I get it now.

15. B.R

@maddi4611 But- mistake. 31/ 20. So, I'mma go with that one.
