I am trying to help my son with his homework. 25 years after my last algebra class and I am lost.
I need to simplify this expression
42y / 1/7
Follow Math Help Forum on Facebook and Google+
42Y/1/7 = 42y * 7/1 = 154y
if denominator is in fraction, you change "divide" to "times" and take upside down of the denominator i.e 1/7 changes to 7/1 and times with the numerator
Your theory is correct but your multiplication is off. 42 x 7 =294
Thanks for the help, I understand the process now.
