a) 13/35=1/5, 27/73 = 2/3, 16/64 = 1/4

b) 4/5+2/3=6/8, 2/5+3/4=5/9, 7/8+1/3=8/11

c) 8 3/8-6 1/4=2 2/4, 5 3/8-2 2/3=3 1/5, 2 2/7-1 1/3=1 1/4

**David**, Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 9:48amWhat fun!

a) You can cancel out numbers that are common to the top and bottom of a fraction... but you can't cancel individual digits!

b) These examples suggest that a/b + c/d = (a+c)/(b+d). Wrong!

c) These examples suggest that {a+(b/c)} - {d+(e/f)} = {(a-d) + (b-e)/(f-d)}. Also wrong!

d) These examples suggest that a*(b/c) = (a*b)/(a*c). Wrong yet again!
