Re: Mandy Jane's CornerBy the way I would like to add an important point about basic arithmetic using fractions: Last edited by SteveB (20130510 05:01:58) #702 20130321 09:56:41

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner
Percentages ... but fractions were necessary for my explanation to make sense. Last edited by SteveB (20130510 05:02:59) #704 20130322 01:56:44
Re: Mandy Jane's Corner[\math]\frac{1}{5} x \frac{3 }{7 } = \frac {3 }{23 }[\math] Last edited by mandy jane (20130322 02:01:21) #705 20130322 02:01:41
Re: Mandy Jane's Corner
This one is incorrect. However I think it is just that you got the times table bit wrong. 5 x 7 is not 23. Try again perhaps? Last edited by SteveB (20130322 02:05:42) #706 20130322 02:12:30

Re: Mandy Jane's CornerGood you have got the hang of it. You can use \times to give an x Last edited by SteveB (20130322 02:21:54) #708 20130322 02:16:36#709 20130322 02:20:43#710 20130322 02:27:06#711 20130322 02:28:07
Re: Mandy Jane's CornerThe reason why I have given us another look at fractions is that any percentage can be rewritten as a fraction Can you see how we could cancel or simplify this fraction ? #712 20130322 02:29:52#713 20130322 02:33:44
Re: Mandy Jane's Corner50 goes into 100 2times and 50 goes into 50 1 so 1/2 am I right? #714 20130322 02:35:13#715 20130322 02:38:44#716 20130322 02:40:44#717 20130322 02:45:44
Re: Mandy Jane's CornerRight here is what I was trying to get you to work out: #718 20130322 02:46:51#719 20130322 02:48:29
Re: Mandy Jane's Cornerwhat do you think we should do now then? #720 20130322 02:50:08#721 20130322 02:53:53#722 20130322 03:01:26#723 20130322 03:04:50
