Math...Algebra :S
posted by Dawn .
Hi, okay um. I'm trying to get his math question (Algebra :o) and i'm not quite sure what i'm doingbut everything i do, i get the wrong answer.
The Question is 2m+n
M= 2/5 and n= 1/2 (Fractions)
Everytime i do the question, i get 9/10 as a answer...but i check the textbook answer and it says that it should be 13/10.
So could somebody please help me *find* the answer. Not give me the answer, but kinda show me it. I donno. Please help somebody!
Thanks a ton.

Did you forget to multiply 2 * 2/5?
M= 2/5 and n= 1/2 (Fractions)
2m+n
(2 * 2/5) + 1/2
4/5 + 1/2 = 8/10 + 5/10 = 13/10 
Heh, i just went back and tried it again and figured it out. I was multiplying 2 to both the denominator and numerator. Teehee.
Thanks anways Ms. Sue :) 
You're welcome. I'm glad you figured it out. :)
