first off, there is no such thing as "cross multiply"
In my school they use cross multiplying as simplify im only in 6th grade
divie \(6\) by \(\frac{2}{4}\) which is the same as multiplying \(6\) times \(\frac{4}{3}\)

tell your teacher satellite73 said there is no such mathematical operation as "cross multiply" and to remove that from his or her vocabulary
answer is 7 and 1/2 pillow cases
I sure will!
in any case your job is to compute \[\large 6\div \frac{3}{4}=6\times \frac{4}{3}\]
its called cross simplifying
cancel first, multiply last the answer is not seven and a half
there is not such thing as "cross simplifying" either or "simplify" for that matter
Honestly rounding that was mental math and it is close to the answer and it is cross products
I got 8 as an answer, is it correct?
yes
three goes in to six two times, two times four is eight
Ever heard of cross products...
I simplified both fractions
yes of course for vectors
Ps i might sound dum because im really really really tired
6/1 / 3/4 = 6/1 * 4/3 = 24/3 = 8 so 8 pillowcases
And cross multiplying is a term used in Core Connections/ CPM 6th and 7th grade math.
And i am not in a mental state of making right choices because I just took a shower which "Woke" me up and I can't fall asleep
ima go help people with science :)#Science is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is basically what i did above just taken out of fraction form: |dw:1444099440255:dw|
Sorry for the weird scribbles. Although you wouldn't really use cross multplication here because there are no variables in the fractions.
