Which fraction is equivalent to 5/6 * 1/3 ?
1 and 1/6
2 and 1/2
Multiply the numerators together; then multiply the denominators together.
5/6 * 1/3 = 5/18
Ms. Sue I did but got it wrong was told the answer was 2 and 1/2.. don't understand?
Your first question in your other post said that your problem was 5/6 divided by 1/3.
Two tutors showed you how to find the answer to that problem.
Yes... But SOL math test told me 5/18 was not the answer....it is 2 and 1/2
You need to divide to get 2 1/2.
The problem you posted above is a multiplication problem.
