-2.5 - (-3.6) subtract
Also how do I find the lowest terms of 375/1000
Any and all help is greatly appreciated
Subtract 5x from both sides to get: $\displaystyle -0.77=x+0.92$
Subtract 0.92 from both sides: $\displaystyle -1.69=x$
Do you know how to subtract negatives? All this is doing is adding 3.6 to -2.52.
-2.5 - (-3.6) subtract
You mean simplify?Also how do I find the lowest terms of 375/1000
I always go easy on myself, divide both numbers by 5 to get: $\displaystyle \frac{75}{200}$
Divide both by 5 again: $\displaystyle \frac{15}{40}$
Divide by 5 again: $\displaystyle \frac{3}{8}$
