**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at 10:28amWe do not do your work for you. Once you have answered your questions, we will be happy to give you feedback on your work. Although it might require more time and effort, you will learn more if you do your own work. Isn't that why you go to school?

**Writeacher**, Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at 11:06amIn my experience, when a student wants explanation, he/she asks for explanation. If the student wants someone to give answers, only the assignment is posted with no specific questions directly from the student.

If all you do is post your entire assignment, not much will happen since no one here will do your work for you. But if you are specific about what you don't understand about the assignment or exactly what help you need, someone might be able to assist you.

Be sure to post exactly what kind of HELP you need.

**MathMate**, Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at 11:34amIf you want explanations, you do not post many questions of the same category, because that gives the impression that you just need the answers.

I will work out the first one for you.

6. (¼ + 7/8)(9/13)

There is an implied multiplication sign between the two sets of parentheses.

Inside of the first set of parentheses, you will need to find the common denominator and add the fractions:

(¼ + 7/8)

=(2/8+7/8)

=9/8

Now multiply the two together to get:

(9/8)*(9/13)

=(9*9)/(8*13)

=81/104

Now you should be able to work on the other problems, and post your answers for checking if you wish.
