Will give medal. I have tried everything to try to solve this. can anyone help me? Renee took a long flight to visit her family that lives out of the country. She slept for the first half of the trip and watched movies for one-third of the remaining flight. If the total trip took eleven and one-fourth hours, how long did Renee watch movies? Select one: A. one and seven-eighths hours B. two and five twenty-fourths hours C. 4 hours D. 6 hours

`She slept for the first half of the trip ` so the other part she was awake is also 1/2 of the trip ------------------------------------- she `watched movies for one-third of the remaining flight` that means you take 1/3 of 1/2 to get what fraction?
DezAndAlf42714
  • DezAndAlf42714
1/6?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yep, now we must convert `eleven and one-fourth hours` (total trip time) to an improper fraction
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what is \(\LARGE 11 \frac{1}{4}\) equal to in terms of an improper fraction?
DezAndAlf42714
  • DezAndAlf42714
so 44/1?
DezAndAlf42714
  • DezAndAlf42714
wait 45/1
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
11*4 + 1 = 44 + 1 = 45 so you should find that \[\Large 11 \frac{1}{4} = \frac{45}{4}\] hopefully you agree?
DezAndAlf42714
  • DezAndAlf42714
yes
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
ok the next step is to multiply 1/6 with 45/4 to get what fraction?
DezAndAlf42714
  • DezAndAlf42714
so now you would do 4 into 45?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
(1/6)*(45/4) = ???
DezAndAlf42714
  • DezAndAlf42714
oooooh ok that would be 1 7/8
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yeah after doing a bunch of steps, you'll end up with \(\LARGE 1 \frac{7}{8}\)
