Fraction help wrong answer
posted by Matty .
It takes Nadia 4/9 h to complete her Language Arts homework and 2/9 h to complete her mathematics homework. Which takes longer? How much longer?
I did this :
It takes Nadia Language Arts home work longer by 13.34 minutes longer.
4/9 x 60 min = 240/9 = 26.67 min
2/9 x 60 = 120/9 = 13.33 min
26.67  13.33 = 13.34 min
I got this wrong? I was suppose to keep it in fractions. And I came up with it took Languarge Arts longer ? Do I just turn the 26.67 and 13.33 into a fraction? then subtract the two minutes? Please help.

You are right. The language arts homework takes longer than the math homework. The language arts homework takes 2/9 of an hour longer.

13.33 min is correct if rounded to the nearest 0.01 minute. As a fraction, that would be 2/9 hour, 120/9 hour or 13 1/3 min.

Thank you both. I understand the fraction part now that I didn't understand.

You should ask your teacher for help instead of cheating on the internet.

DO IT YOURSELF LAZY NO ONE IS GOING TO ANSWER IT FOR YOU DO IT YOURSELF OR ASK A PARENT OR SOMTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

good job and thanks for the help!
