### FRACTIONS

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

HELLO PEOPLE FROM 9-06! Today for the SCRIBE POST I'm going to talk about some questions from yesterday and today. AND SORRY for any mistakes!!

So lets begin!!!
This is one of the QUESTIONS we did.

Usually we would find COMMON DENOMINATOR but for this question we don't have to because they are both the same.
Anyways after we have to find the EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS. We don't have to find the equivalent fraction for this one because we didn't have to find the denominators.

Then we have to REWRITE THE QUESTION . Then we answer the question.

That was an example of ADDING NEGATIVE FRACETIONS.

These here are very IMPORTANT.

(-)=(-)

-(-)=(+)

-(-)(-)=(-)

-(-)(-)(-)=(+)

-(2/3)=-2/3

-(-2/3)=2/3

-(-2/-3)=-2/-3

Now i'm going to give examples of SUBTRACTING NEGATIVE FRACTIONS

The first thing you have to do is... FIND COMMON DENOMINATORS and it seem like this one already has common

So.. For this one we don't have to find the EQUIVALENT FRACTION. So will go to the next step which is REWRITE AND ANSWER.

AND THE NEXT SCRIBE IS
RAYE FLETT..
THAT IS IF YOU DID NOT DO ONE

SEE YAAHH NEXT TIME :P

SRRY IT`s so short.. i will do better next time

Mr. B. said...

Melanee, when you combine two negatives like -3 and -1 you should think about it as losing 3 and then losing 1 more. Altogether you will have lost 4 or in math writing -4. Check your example please.

Good post...it is not that short...HITN*
you forgot your lables HINT*

kk Mr B
and thank You everyone for your comments i'll fix my mistakes

i don't get WHAT you mean mr b

Hey melanee great job on the post!. But it would also help if you could've labelled the topics on which are the questions from the last day to the current day so both topics cant get mixed up.
