    1)

    Cross multiply.

    1/24 x 1/48
    = (1x48) + (1x24) / (24 * 48)
    = 72/1152
    = 3/48

    Again cross multiple..

    1/20 + 1/30
    = (1x30) + (1x20) / (20x30)
    = 30 + 20 / 600 (crossing off the 0 you get)
    = 3 + 2 / 60
    = 5 / 60
    = 1 / 12

    You try the next one and post it on here, ill be more than happy to help!

    If you dont mind me asking, what year are you in school ?
