To find the answer you need to determine what they did to get from 88 down to 11

alright so, we begin with 48/88 = ?/11 right?|dw:1444149333139:dw|

- YoloShroom

we 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?

- rainbow_rocks03

divide by 6?

\[\frac{ 44 }{ 88} = \frac{ x }{ 11 }\]
Original equation
\[44 \times 11 = 88x\] ( Upon cross multiplying)
\[484 = 88x\]
Now simply solve for x.

- rainbow_rocks03

88*x=?

- YoloShroom

@rainbow_rocks03 you multiply both sides by 11 to remove the fraction
and you are left with 6=x

- rainbow_rocks03

so 88*11 ?

- Compassionate

\[x = \frac{ 484 }{ 88 }\]
x = 5.5

- YoloShroom

There's no choice for 5.5 ;)

@Vocaloid !!!!!

- Compassionate

44/88 = 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.

My method was right, your exact solution is 5.5. Your possible choices are wrong

- rainbow_rocks03

so 5.5 is the answer?

- YoloShroom

I keep getting 6.. i think you've over thought it compassionate.

- YoloShroom

Simplify 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.

That'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.

- YoloShroom

Question is a bit misleading isnt it...

- Compassionate

Slightly. Read ex. 1. http://www.themathpage.com/alg/algebraic-fractions-2.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.

are yall trying to help me or trying to see who did the work right?!

- YoloShroom

What math class is this for rainbow?

- YoloShroom

For your question, i believe 6 is the correct answer.
@Compassionate would you agree? Since 5.5 isnt a choice
