Hi all,

I thought I'd share my site:

www.studymaths.co.uk

It is designed to help students with their maths homework and preparation for their upcoming GCSEs.

Many thanks,

Hi cacwong;

They can bring their questions here and they will be answered. Wished I had something like this when I was young.

Hi;

7/8 / ( 1 1/2 x 1 5/9)

Is this what you mean?

Turn the denominator into 2 proper fractions:

Clean up the denominator a little.

reduce the denominator to lowest terms.

So 3 / 8 is the answer.

Hi akhil;

Use the formula A = ( b * h ) / 2

A = ( 4 * 5 ) / 2 = 10
