How do you figure out a related sentence for fractions? (here is the problem) t + 1/8= 3/5
multipy the 1/8 by 5/5 or it is 5/40
Then, mulipy the 3/5 by 8/8 to 24/40
Finally subtract 5/40 from both sides.
Think out why it is done this way.
What do you mean by a "related sentence"?
Just find a common denominator for the fractions and do the algebra.
t + 5/40 = 24/40
t = 19/40
