okay let me try to explain this hold on
no prob
1/8 = 1/8 - you're set for the first one. 3/4 x 2/2 = 6/8 - all I did there was multiply the fraction by '1' only in the form of '2/2.' 1/8 - 6/8 Just subtract the numerators. -5/8 -- ANSWER. Hope this helped, and good luck!! :)
that is not one of my multiple choices so idk.....
Oh can you just put the numbers for your choices
3/8,3/8, 4/8, 4/8
@Tal_Tal An important part of solving a math problem is getting an answer that makes sense. The problem states that a person added an amount of sugar to a bowl. Then some sugar was removed from the bowl. You can end up with some sugar or no sugar in the bowl, but your answer of a negative amount makes no sense because it has no meaning in the real world. That means your answer cannot be correct.
@abby1012 I'm trying to understand the problem. At first, 3/4 cup of sugar was added to the bowl, right?
Thank you for pointing that out I'll keep that in mind next time!
um okay so if his own is wrong what is it ?
yes @mathstudent55 but it has because and then it has numbers sorry cant copy and paste
3/4 cup was added to the bowl. The 2 amounts of 1/8 cup each were taken from the bowl. Is this what the problem is telling you?
@abby1012 It's ok. That's why I'm asking to make sure I understand the problem before I try to help you.
yes i guess

that is all i can copy and paste

yip

yes
Mathstudent can you help me with my question once you are done? thank you!!
That means this is the calculation we need to do. |dw:1444241012258:dw|
Since we are subtracting fractions, we need a common denominator. The LCD of 4 and 8 is 8, so we will use a common denominator of 8 for all 3 fractions.
|dw:1444241100493:dw|
ok
@abby1012 Do you follow so far?
yip i am still folowing
When we subtract fractions, we subtract the numerators and just keep the common denominator.
|dw:1444241197965:dw|
What is 6 - 1 - 1 ?
|dw:1444241249035:dw|
|dw:1444241288309:dw|
it is equal 4
Correct. 6 - 1 - 1 = 4, so our numerator is now 4. The denominator is 8, so we have 4/8
yip i see four over 8 on my multiple choice
thanks i get it
Since we now have 4/8, we need to reduce the fraction. We notice that both 4 and 8 are divisible by 4, so we can divide the numerator and denoninator by 4.
|dw:1444241400761:dw|
my multiple choice just wants 4/8 and why is it 4/8
There is no 1/2 in your choices?
no
Then 4/8 is correct.
but thanks u helped alot
You're welcome.
