Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well... \[\large 5  \frac{y}{8} = \frac{8}{8} \times 5  \frac{y}{8} = \frac{40}{8}  \frac{y}{8} = \frac{40  y}{8}\] I actually don't think either are correct there hun :/ But do you see what I did?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I did the same thing in my first one but thought it was negative,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Nope...that '5' never becomes negative to begin with...the common denominator is 8...so after you multiply the 5 by 8/8 you get that 40/8 term...but no negative :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the mixed number would be the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hmm, theoretically yes...but I hardly ever see a software or a teacher wanting a mixed number as the answer...probably just leave it as an improper fraction \[\large \frac{31}{6}\] if my quick mental math is right
