For these fractions all I knew was to find the lowest common denominator and after that I wasnt sure what to do
3k/2 - K+3/3 = 8 - k+2/4
3p/4 + p-5/3 = 1/2
u-3/4 -2 = 3u/2 = 2u+1/5
U-5/2 = 2u+5
Hello, TH1;70157!
Krizalid is absolutely correct . . .
With an equation, we can eliminate the fractions (legally).
Your second problem: .
The LCD is 12. .Multiply through by 12.
Multiply everything by 12: .
. . and reduce: .
. . and we have: .
