well how did you figure out that you got 6 and 3/8?
i multiplyed 1 1/2 and 4 1/4
well do you know the process named F.O.I.L?
no i do not i never heard of it lol
it means first, outer, inner, last. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/1b/62/c1/1b62c1c110f2ba0a7a7b20365d9c9a19.jpg basically like this. and I forgot that you can't use this formula with this equation. but can't you also just have a denominator of 4? so 1 and 1/2 and 4 and 1/4. you can do 1 and 2/4 and 4 and 1/4 right?
First, try to change 4 1/4 into improper fraction, then just multiply it by 11/2.
so i have to multiply the whole numberby the denoinator?
Take both of the numbers and turn them into improper fractions.
what is the improper form of 4 1/4 ?
i dont know. i have no clue how to turn them into an improper fraction my teacher doesnt explain to me on how to do it :/
Take the denominator and multiply it by the whole number, then add the numerator and put the result on top. Keep the denominator the same. :)
no worries.. let's do it step by step. |dw:1450332638837:dw| 1. Multiply the denominator by the whole number
ok so 4*4 is 16 +1=17?
yes, that will be your numerator... your denominator will be the same
17 will be my numerator but the denominatore will be 4 or 16?
Keep the denominator, so it will still be 4.
You don't need FOIL to solve this problem.
ok good lol because i dont even know what it is
FOIL is pretty simple but it isn't used here, I first used it in pre-calc so no worries yet. :)
It's sort of like the distributive property but it is two sets of parenthesis instead of one.
FOIL is generally first used in Algebra. But you don't need FOIL to do what FOIL is for doing. It's a method of multiplying two term factors. It ensures you multiply each term in the first factor/expression by each of the terms in the second factor/expression.
ok thnx for the help :)
