a)

4/5

When I solved it the outcome was 5/6

b) - 72 - (-7)2

I got the outcome 0.

Can you help me?

My gratitude,

$\displaystyle \frac {\frac {4}{6}}{\frac {4}{5}} = \frac {4\cdot 5 }{4\cdot 6}= \frac {5}{6 }$

a) is
$\frac{\frac{4}{6}}{\frac{4}{5}}
\Rightarrow
\frac{4}{6}\times\frac{5}{4}
\Rightarrow
\frac{20}{24}
\Rightarrow
\frac{5}{6}
$

$

b) if you mean
$-\left(7\right)^2-\left(-7\right)^2
\Rightarrow
-14-14 = 28
$

otherwise what was given is correct.... you should us () with problems like this. or better yet latex

Thank you for your answer, but the ( ) weren't in the second problem. It was:

-7*2-/-(-7)*2

Why is 7^2 14 and not 49?

heheheheheh :D:D:D

yes it is :D

lol but it's inconclusive is it $7^2$ or the $7\cdot 2$ and there one part of the brain sow it as $7^2$ and while answering second part of the brain saw it as $7\cdot 2$ so that's why that typo appear :D:D:D:D

$-7^2 - (-7)^2 = -49 - (+49) = -98$

$-7\cdot 2 - (-7)\cdot 2 = -14 - (-14) = 0$

Sorry to be pedantic but:

$-7^2 - (-7)^2 = -49 - (+49) = 98$?

or

$-7^2 - (-7)^2 = -49 - (+49) = -98$

or

$-7^2 - (-7)^2 = -49 - (-49) = 0$

Sorry to be a pain (Worried)

$-7^2 - (-7)^2 = -49 -(+49) = -49 - 49 = -98$

I'm surprised this thread has gone that many posts, but the solution so much time to be obtained...
