I don't get this question someone please explain Which values will make the equation true? −3/5=? Drag each value to the table to show whether it makes the equation true or false. Makes the equations true: Makes them false: -3/5 3/5 3/-5 -( -3/-5) -(-3/5) -(3/5)

Ok so how do I do that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
For a decimal I got .6 , does that help?
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪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
  • ♪Chibiterasu
Thats one way to do it but this way is much simpler
anonymous
  • anonymous
What so -3/5= -3/5??
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
yes
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
Now the next one does -3/5 = 3/5?
anonymous
  • 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

what

exactly
♪Chibiterasu

i dont understand what you're saying

can you just screenshot it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have a toshiba laptop idk how to
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪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
  • anonymous
oh
anonymous
  • anonymous
So are they both true?
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
So when both of them are negative it cancels out and it becomes positive
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
-3/5 = -3/5 so yes
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
but does -3/5 = 3/5?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Um no?
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
yeah. so you would drag that into false
anonymous
  • anonymous
do I just drag the rest into false other than-3/5 and -3/5?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i mean
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
no were not done now 3/-5 remember what I said about one value being negative?
anonymous
  • anonymous
just -3/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh
anonymous
  • anonymous
So true?
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
we're not done we can still keep going. signs can be tricky
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪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?

Yeah, thanks so much for helping with explaining the problem

-( -3/-5) what do you think this means?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Um not sure, is it true also? or is it false
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think false
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪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
  • anonymous
ya
anonymous
  • anonymous
so It is true?
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
yeah. -3/-5 turns into 3/5 so now we have -(3/5) which does equal -3/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ah I see
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
-(-3/5) what about this one?
anonymous
  • anonymous
True? Because it changes -3 into 3 so -(3/5)?
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪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
  • anonymous
oh then what happened to the negative sign by the parenthesis?
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
You don't need it anymore after you convert signs, so we get rid of it when we convert -3 into 3 :)
♪Chibiterasu
  • ♪Chibiterasu
It's kinda like using a power-up. Once you use it, it vanishes or loses its purpose and isn't necessary anymore.

Oh ok
anonymous

so it's false then?

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