I need help bad.

Fractions
1)1/3 + 5/12 + 4/5 =

2)13/15 - 11/20 =

3)1 1/15 + 3 3/10 - 2 4/5 =

    For the first three problems, you need to change these fractions so they have a common denominator. Then add or subtract the numerators.

    Example:
    1/3 + 5/12 + 4/5 =
    The number that's divisible by 3, 12, and 5 is 60.
    1/3 = 20/60
    5/12 = 25/60
    4/5 = 48/60

    20/60 + 25/60 + 48/60 = ?

    Please attempt the other problems and post your answers. We'll be happy to check them for you.

    These are exercises in converting to a common denominator, and then adding or subtracting fractions. Here is how to do the first one.

    1) The common denominator is 3x4x5 = 60
    1/3 + 5/12 + 4/5 = (20+25+48)/60 = 93/60
    = 1 33/60 = 1 11/20 = 1.55

    Now you try the others. There are many math teachers here willing to help student who make an effort. Someone will be glad to critique your work.

    9 1/5 - 7 6/25 = 46/5 - 181/25 =
    230 - 181/25 = 49/25 = 1 24/25
    Now estimate to see if the answer is reasonable by rounding each mixed number to the nearest integer then subtracting.
