Hello, janvi anish!
How does $\displaystyle \frac{2}{5}$ compare to $\displaystyle \frac{1}{9}$ ?Joe has eaten $\displaystyle \frac{2}{5}$ of a pizza and Sue has eaten $\displaystyle \frac{1}{9}$ of a pizza.
How many more times has Joe eaten a pizza more than Sue?
The answer is $\displaystyle \frac{3}{5}.$ . . . . . This is wrong!
We have: .$\displaystyle \frac{\:\dfrac{2}{5}\:}{\dfrac{1}{9}} \;=\;\frac{2}{5}\cdot\frac{9}{1} \:=\:\frac{18}{5}$
Joe has eaten $\displaystyle 3.6$ times as much pizza as Sue ate.
yes thanks but again we have another one similar...
joe has eaten 4/5 of a pizza, jane 1/8 how many more times has joe eaten a pizza than jane..this says that the answer is 2/5...but again i do not get it.....
i am sure it is in the wording somewhere....
