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.

  • scienceteen8
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 ?
scienceteen8
  • scienceteen8
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
scienceteen8
  • scienceteen8
ok so 4*4 is 16 +1=17?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, that will be your numerator... your denominator will be the same
scienceteen8
  • scienceteen8
17 will be my numerator but the denominatore will be 4 or 16?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Keep the denominator, so it will still be 4.
scienceteen8
  • scienceteen8
ok

You don't need FOIL to solve this problem.
scienceteen8
  • scienceteen8
ok good lol because i dont even know what it is
anonymous
  • anonymous
FOIL is pretty simple but it isn't used here, I first used it in pre-calc so no worries yet. :)
scienceteen8
  • scienceteen8
ok

  • anonymous
It's sort of like the distributive property but it is two sets of parenthesis instead of one.

  • crabbyoldgamer
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.
