mixed fractionHey all = but i get stuck here S: is this totally wrong? with the other problems i was able to factor them then cancel out. But this one i keep getting to this point and get confused Last edited by bronxsystem (20140122 03:21:39) #2 20140122 03:22:08
Re: mixed fractionHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20140122 03:30:04
Re: mixed fractionfrom the last one? 1+a/a * a2/1a2 #4 20140122 03:34:17
Re: mixed fractionHi; Now you multiply top and bottom of that by a2. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: mixed fractionI was trying to quote Henry David Thorough. Got it backwards it seems.

Re: mixed fractionIf you follow Post #4 will get you there very easily. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: mixed fractionthe answer in book was in line with the typo but thank you (: i will save this thread and review the problem assuming it was a2 and try work it out using your working (: thanks thanks thanks Last edited by bronxsystem (20140122 04:40:24) #15 20140122 04:46:32
