simplify one half plus two thirds divided by three fourths

  • pre algrebra -

    If you verbalize an arithmetic calculation rather than using symbols, you lose the correct sequence of operations

    e.g. If I say
    What is 3 plus 8 divided by 4
    is it (3+8)/4 or 3 + 8/4 ? different answers!

    I will suppose it is the usual BEDMAS rule

    1/2 + (2/3) รท (3/4)
    = 1/2 + (2/3)(4/3)
    = 1/2 + 8/9
    = 9/18 + 16/18
    = 25/18
