First, convert the fractions into improper fractions. Do you know how to do that?

\(\Large a\frac{b}{c} = \frac{(a~\cdot~ c)~ + ~b}{c}\)

Check the second improper fraction again
HELLOMYNAMEISKAM
  • HELLOMYNAMEISKAM
41/5
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
correct
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
We now have: \(\Large- \frac{17}{5} + b = \frac{41}{5}\) Rearrange the terms \(\Large b - \frac{17}{5}= \frac{41}{5}\) Add 17/5 on both sides \(\Large b = \frac{41}{5}+\frac{17}{5}\) Can you simplify that more? :)

I would have to say yes. Even though i am not sure i would have to say yes

Hint: \(\Large \frac{a}{c} + \frac{b}{c} = \frac{a~+~b}{c}\)

i got 58/ 5 so that has to no to simplifying right?
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
We can convert 58/5 into a mixed number, or we can leave it as an improper fraction. :)
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
The answer choices are all in mixed number, so let's go ahead and make 58/5 into a mixed number. :)

58 divided by 5 is 11.6
