Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hey amber would be great if you post ur work so we can look over and find out the mistakes instead starting over anywx first deal with the numerator \[\huge\rm \frac{\color{Red}{ 3\frac{ 5 }{ x }} }{ \frac{ x }{ 5 } }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when we find common denominator we should multiply the numerator of first fraction by the denominator of 2nd fraction and multiply the numerator of 2nd fraction by the denominator of first fraction dw:1443800744203:dw just like cross multiply

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right \[\huge\rm \frac{ \frac{ 3x5 }{ x } }{ \frac{ x }{ 5 }}\] now to change division to multiplication we should multiply the top fraction with the `reciprocal ` of the bottom fraction
