Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To find the answer you need to determine what they did to get from 88 down to 11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright so, we begin with 48/88 = ?/11 right?dw:1444149333139:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can let the question mark be X because that's the number we're trying to solve for. so 6/11 = x/11 , what would you do next?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 44 }{ 88} = \frac{ x }{ 11 }\] Original equation \[44 \times 11 = 88x\] ( Upon cross multiplying) \[484 = 88x\] Now simply solve for x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@rainbow_rocks03 you multiply both sides by 11 to remove the fraction and you are left with 6=x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.044/88 = x/11 The denominator 88 was divided by 8, therefore, the numberator must also be divided by 8 44/8 = 5.5 This method gives me 5.5 as well.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0http://www.themathpage.com/alg/algebraicfractions2.htm My method was right, your exact solution is 5.5. Your possible choices are wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 5.5 is the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I keep getting 6.. i think you've over thought it compassionate.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Simplify the fraction first, then you can multiple both side by the same number to remove the fractions. 48/88=x/11 48/88 simplifies to 6/11 so 6/11=x/11 Multiply both sides by 11, and you remove the fraction. Leaving you with 6=x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's another method, but the first aforementioned method was equal. It doesn't matter if we reduce the fraction, you'll get the same number. Watch. 48/88=x/11 528/88 = x 6 = x No need to reduce. But if we solve the equation by using Equivalent Fraction to find the missing numerator, we get 5.5. This is an odd choice, indeed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Slightly. Read ex. 1. http://www.themathpage.com/alg/algebraicfractions2.htm If we have 44/88 = x/11, we can say 88 was divided by 8 to get 11. Therefore, 44 must also be divided by 8 since they are equivalent. Thus, 44/8 = 5.5 Odd, indeed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For your question, i believe 6 is the correct answer. @Compassionate would you agree? Since 5.5 isnt a choice
