Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer should be 21 and 45, written as 21/45. Do you understand how I got that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well I got 63/15 because 7*9 is 63 and 5 time 3 is 15. all I have to do is convert. But I guess I got it wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, there's the issue. You're supposed to multiply the top numbers (numerators) and the bottom numbers (denominators) together, not the same ones on the fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically, the fraction means divide, so \[\frac{ 72 }{ 3 } = 24\]
