Lisa, I hope I didn't sound mean to you. That is not my intention. You will never learn unless you try. It takes practice. :) Is there something in particular you don't understand about dealing with fractions?
*January 25, 2011*

**math**

Tutors do not do your homework. It is obvious that you are struggling with this. The only way you will learn is practice. Try these problems YOURSELF. If you have a specific question we will be more than happy to help, but YOU must attempt these problems first.

And, ignore how I said that I do it. Do it your way, however you were taught. Your way IS correct. I just prefer to do it the way I was taught. I don't want to confuse you. :)

**math**

Ok, sorry, your answer 8 25/72, was the SUM, not the final answer, which is the average. 8 25/72 is correct for the sum. You have to divide the sum by 2, for the average. So however you were adding is correct.

What grade are you in? Unless there is a new way taught for adding fractions, you can't do it like that. You have to convert each mixed number to a fraction 3 2/9 = 29/9 5 1/8 = 41/8 Then you add 29/9 + 41/8 Find the LCD 232/72 + 369/72 = 601/72 601/72 divided by 2, ...

How did you get 40 from that? Do you mean 200/(x - 1) = 200/(x + 10) cross multiply 200(x + 10) = 200(x - 1) 200x + 2000 = 200x - 200 NO solution to this
