solve: 2/3 + 4/6 = ____.
Am i doing this right ?
2 x 2 = 4
- = -
3 x 3 = 6 4 x 1 = 4
- = -
6 x 1 = 6
= 8/6 << how do i put in simplest term ???
Just for the record here, I dislike proper fractions.
It's not the concept, it's the form of the number. Something like "1 1/3" is likely to be misconstrued either as 11/3 or 1 times 1/3. The only saving grace to them is when it is typed in some sort of font such as , but this also can be taken to be .
I think overall it's much better just to leave it as 4/3.
By the way do you have a degree in mathematics?
