(1/6 squared) multiplied by 9/25 then that answer is divided by 2/5 squared
Hi, duckpluckie,Originally Posted by duckpluckie
expand all squares:
$\displaystyle \frac{\left(\frac{1}{6}\right)^2\codt\frac{9}{25}} {\frac{2}{5}}$$\displaystyle =\frac{1}{36}\cdot\frac{9}{25}\cdot\frac{5}{2}$
Simplify and you'll get:
$\displaystyle \frac{1}{40}$

I think the (2/5) was supposed to be squared too.
So the problem is:
$\displaystyle \frac{(\frac{1}{6})^2 \cdot \frac{9}{25}}{(\frac{2}{5})^2}$
Determine the squares first:
$\displaystyle =\frac{\frac{1}{36} \cdot \frac{9}{25}}{\frac{4}{25}}$
Cancel 9 out of the top:
$\displaystyle =\frac{\frac{1}{4}\cdot \frac{1}{25}}{\frac{4}{25}}$
and cancel the 25ths out:
$\displaystyle =\frac{(\frac{1}{4})}{4}$
This is $\displaystyle \frac{1}{4} \div {4} = \frac{1}{16}$.
