Example text

Problem 2: Add 1/6 and 2/6. Solution: Let's run the videotape for our instant replays. Everybody knows that 1/2 + 1/2 = 1. But what did we really do in terms of numerators (top numbers) and denominators (bottom numbers)? We added the numerators and wrote their sum over a common denominator. We did the same thing when we added 1/6 + 2/6. We added the numerators over the common denominator: 49 50 Notice that we've reduced this fraction to its lowest terms. Why? Mainly so that it is in its most recognizable form.

6 for a total of three places. 758. And now, another example. Problem: Solution: Are you getting these problems right? If not, redo them. If yes, then you're ready for Self-Test 1.

All we need to do is align everything. We'll start off with a very simple problem and work our way into the more complex.

Convert 3/4 into a decimal. 2. Convert 1/6 into a decimal. 3. Convert 3/8 into a decimal. 4. Convert 1/12 into a decimal.

Then we put 3 over 10, which divided 3 by 10. 3 as a fraction: 45 46 Any number may be written over 1 because it does not change its value1 divided into any number is that number.
