Can you tell me the answer to:
3 1/2 = ______x 4 3/8. I keep coming
up with 1 1/4 but it doesnt work out
when I multiply it back. HELP!!!!

Your error is that you keep trying to divide (3 1/2)/(4 3/8). When you should do it the other way. (4 3/8)/(3 1/2)
You should get 4/5. 
thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I said it in the reverse order. I'm sorry for the confusion. You SHOULD divide (3 1/2)/(4 3/8), not (4 3/8)/(3 1/2).

thats easy 03 daaaaaaaahhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
