The question doesn't look right.
Which values are the same as -3/5
Ok so how do I do that?
For a decimal I got .6 , does that help?
-3/5 3/5 3/-5 -(-3/-5) -(3/5) Which one of these obviously equals -3/5 that doesnt help we just need to take into account the signs
Thats one way to do it but this way is much simpler
What so -3/5= -3/5??
Now the next one does -3/5 = 3/5?
wait hold on, the fraction says -3/5 for whole and the 2nd fraction literally said -3/5 as in negative 3 over 5
i dont understand what you're saying
um i'll try to explain it more easily
can you just screenshot it?
I have a toshiba laptop idk how to
Ok I get what you mean, but when one of the values is negative it makes the entire fraction negative so its the same thing
So are they both true?
So when both of them are negative it cancels out and it becomes positive
-3/5 = -3/5 so yes
but does -3/5 = 3/5?
yeah. so you would drag that into false
do I just drag the rest into false other than-3/5 and -3/5?
no were not done now 3/-5 remember what I said about one value being negative?
we're not done we can still keep going. signs can be tricky
yes, 3/-5 would be true. -3/5 = 3/-5 because both will just end up being -(3/5) when simplified
do you kinda get it now?
Yeah, thanks so much for helping with explaining the problem
were not done!
-( -3/-5) what do you think this means?
Um not sure, is it true also? or is it false
i think false
First lets look inside the parenthesis remember that a - sign is just reversing signs. It will turn - into + and it will turn + into -. in the parenthesis, both values are negative. do you remember waht i said about that?
so It is true?
yeah. -3/-5 turns into 3/5 so now we have -(3/5) which does equal -3/5
Ah I see
-(-3/5) what about this one?
True? Because it changes -3 into 3 so -(3/5)?
it does change -3 into 3 but after you convert you can get rid of the parenthesis so it would just be 3/5
oh then what happened to the negative sign by the parenthesis?
You don't need it anymore after you convert signs, so we get rid of it when we convert -3 into 3 :)
It's kinda like using a power-up. Once you use it, it vanishes or loses its purpose and isn't necessary anymore.
so it's false then?
last one -(3/5) i think this one is pretty obvious lol
yeah, it's right xD
Oh ok lol, thanks again for helping me! I learned a lot about fractions during this process :D
so just to make sure, what did you put in for true and false?
im glad :)
Oh I put
um Makes the equation true:-(-3/-5) , -(3/5) , -(-3/5) , 3/-5 , -3/5 Is that right?
-(-3/5) is false. It changes the negative to a positive :)
the rest is fine, good job
Ok thanks!!! You helped a lot
