Why do you think we should divide?
anonymous
  • anonymous

Liv1234
  • Liv1234
The first thing we should do is turn the mixed number 7 and 3/4 into a fraction.

So, to convert it into a fraction you have to multiply the denominator by 7 and then add 3 to what you get.

Correct! @doopy
Liv1234
  • Liv1234
But we keep the denominator the same, so it would be 31/4. Do you understand so far?

yes
Liv1234

Okay, do you know what we do next?

Remember we still have the x/8 so keep that in mind for when we are solving for the final answer.
Liv1234
  • Liv1234
And don't worry, I used to be terrible with them, but they aren't so hard once you get the hang of them.(:

  • anonymous
ok thanks
Liv1234
  • Liv1234
So, notice how we now have 31/4=x/8, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
Liv1234
  • Liv1234
What do you have to multiply 4 by to get 8?
anonymous
  • anonymous
2
Liv1234
  • Liv1234
Correct! Now do you see what we're gonna do with 31?
anonymous
  • anonymous
multiply by 2
Liv1234
  • Liv1234
Correct!! So, what is 31*2?
anonymous
  • anonymous
62
Liv1234
  • Liv1234
