Your welcome. I thought the second question is a little bit passed where you are. Or maybe I am missing something obvious, anyway that is how I do it.

For the second one you have to use a trick.

1:201 =? I am assuming you mean 1.20101010101...

1.2 = 6 / 5 so

Let's work with the .0010101010...

Say:

Multiply both sides by 1000.

The .01010101010... is just 10 x.

Solve for x.

So that is your answer.

I leave the checking to you.

Please start your own thread from now on in "Help Me" that way you will get faster help.

Here is how I do it. Start with the obvious fraction.

Now you have to get a whole number over another whole number.

If you moved the decimal point in 1.0021 four places to the right

you would have 10021 Whatever you do to the top of the fraction you have to do to the bottom. So

You can now make sure that it is in lowest terms.

]]>Please if possible i would like to see the step by step solution to the problem.

Thanks

I love it. I've posted the link to some teachers I know.

Quincunx still running. HHmmmmm! :)

Better stick with bunched.

]]>The Quincunx is nice! It is easy to understand so you are done.

About the skewed data, left and right skewed have a strange meaning. Left skewed means the tail is on the left, yours shows it the other way around.

I do not why it is like that in statistics, to me your viewpoint is more intuitive but

A quick fix is change the word skewed to bunched. Which is probably better for what you are trying to show.
