Ok so how do I do that?

- anonymous

For a decimal I got .6 , does that help?

- ♪Chibiterasu

-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

- ♪Chibiterasu

Thats one way to do it but this way is much simpler

- anonymous

What so -3/5= -3/5??

- ♪Chibiterasu

yes

- ♪Chibiterasu

Now the next one
does -3/5 = 3/5?

- anonymous

wait hold on, the fraction says -3/5 for whole and the 2nd fraction literally said -3/5
as in negative 3 over 5

- ♪Chibiterasu

what

- anonymous

exactly

- ♪Chibiterasu

i dont understand what you're saying

- anonymous

um i'll try to explain it more easily

- ♪Chibiterasu

can you just screenshot it?

- anonymous

I have a toshiba laptop idk how to

- ♪Chibiterasu

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

- anonymous

oh

- anonymous

So are they both true?

- ♪Chibiterasu

So when both of them are negative it cancels out and it becomes positive

- ♪Chibiterasu

-3/5 = -3/5 so yes

- ♪Chibiterasu

but does -3/5 = 3/5?

- anonymous

Um no?

- ♪Chibiterasu

yeah. so you would drag that into false

- anonymous

do I just drag the rest into false other than-3/5 and -3/5?

- anonymous

i mean

- ♪Chibiterasu

no were not done
now 3/-5
remember what I said about one value being negative?

- anonymous

just -3/5

- anonymous

Oh

- anonymous

So true?

- ♪Chibiterasu

we're not done we can still keep going. signs can be tricky

- ♪Chibiterasu

yes, 3/-5 would be true.
-3/5 = 3/-5 because both will just end up being -(3/5) when simplified

- ♪Chibiterasu

do you kinda get it now?

- anonymous

Yeah, thanks so much for helping with explaining the problem

- ♪Chibiterasu

were not done!

- anonymous

o

- ♪Chibiterasu

-( -3/-5)
what do you think this means?

- anonymous

Um not sure, is it true also? or is it false

- anonymous

i think false

- ♪Chibiterasu

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?

- anonymous

ya

- anonymous

so It is true?

- ♪Chibiterasu

yeah.
-3/-5 turns into 3/5 so now we have -(3/5) which does equal -3/5

- anonymous

Ah I see

- ♪Chibiterasu

-(-3/5)
what about this one?

- anonymous

True? Because it changes -3 into 3 so -(3/5)?

- ♪Chibiterasu

it does change -3 into 3 but after you convert you can get rid of the parenthesis so it would just be 3/5

- anonymous

oh then what happened to the negative sign by the parenthesis?

- ♪Chibiterasu

You don't need it anymore after you convert signs, so we get rid of it when we convert -3 into 3 :)

- ♪Chibiterasu

It's kinda like using a power-up. Once you use it, it vanishes or loses its purpose and isn't necessary anymore.

- anonymous

Oh ok

- anonymous

so it's false then?

- ♪Chibiterasu

yeap

- ♪Chibiterasu

last one
-(3/5)
i think this one is pretty obvious lol

- anonymous

True haha

- anonymous

wait, right?

- ♪Chibiterasu

yeah, it's right xD

- anonymous

Oh ok lol, thanks again for helping me! I learned a lot about fractions during this process :D

- ♪Chibiterasu

so just to make sure, what did you put in for true and false?

- ♪Chibiterasu

im glad :)

- anonymous

Oh I put

- anonymous

um Makes the equation true:-(-3/-5) , -(3/5) , -(-3/5) , 3/-5 , -3/5
Is that right?

- ♪Chibiterasu

-(-3/5) is false. It changes the negative to a positive :)

- ♪Chibiterasu

the rest is fine, good job

- anonymous

Ok thanks!!! You helped a lot
