thanks
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
focus on just these fractions here |dw:1449461065636:dw| what is the LCD of those fractions?
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
1?
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
12
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
12, yes
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
if you multiplied by 1, or 12/12 then you'd have |dw:1449461123056:dw|
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
yyes
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what happens when you multiply 12 by \(\LARGE (\frac{x}{3}+\frac{y}{4})\) ?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
don't forget about distribution
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
you get 12 x/3 + 12y/4
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what does 12x/3 reduce to?
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
4/1?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you left out the x
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
4x/1 or just 4x
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
oh yes the x
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
ok
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
similarly, 12y/4 = 3y/1 = 3y
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
now do the same for the fractions in the denominator
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
yes 3x-1 and then12y over 4
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
12 times (x/4 - y/3) = ???
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
12x/48-12y/36
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you don't multiply 12 by the 4 down below
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
12 times (x/4 - y/3) = 12x/4 - 12y/3 = ???
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
oh ok whoops
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
xy/1
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
12x/4 simplifies to what?
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
3x/1
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
or just 3x
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
how about 12y/3
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
4y
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yep
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so, |dw:1449461594247:dw|
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
oh, ok! That wasn't so hard.. SO thats the final answer?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
the left side is equivalent to the right side because what really just happened was that we multiplied by 1 (12/12 = 1) multiplying by 1 doesn't change anything
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yes
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
ok, thanks!
