  • jabez177
No, \[8\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }\] is the whole fraction.
swaf11
  • swaf11
ohhh ok
jabez177
  • jabez177
And nice, it's 9/1 :)
jabez177
  • jabez177
I mean 9/2
swaf11
  • swaf11
so u multiply 8 1/3 by 9/2
jabez177
  • jabez177
Now, \[\frac{ 25 }{ 3 }\times \frac{ 9 }{ 2 }\]
jabez177
  • jabez177
How many times can 3 go into 9? Meaning, 3 x what = 9?
swaf11
  • swaf11
3
swaf11
  • swaf11
wait how does 3*3 relate to 25/3*9/2?
jabez177
  • jabez177
Good so the 3 turns into 1 and the 9 turns into 3. So now it is \[\frac{ 25 }{ 1 }\times \frac{ 3 }{ 2 }\]
swaf11
  • swaf11
oh ok
jabez177
  • jabez177
So now what is 25 x 3?
swaf11
  • swaf11
75
jabez177
  • jabez177
1 x 2 = ?
swaf11
  • swaf11
2
jabez177
