hello could anyone please help me with this fraction problem?
1 2/3 * 3 5/7=
i have completely forgotten what the method is and my ds has not covered it at school yet. i think (and according to dh) you multiply denominators and numerators with each other?
also does anyone know whether this type of problem comes up in 11
plus in surrey.
Convert your sum into 5/3 * 26/7 =
then you can multiply as your DH says -
5*26 = 130
3*7 = 21
so 130/21 = 6 4/21
I dont know if it comes up in Surrey but havent seen that type of q in any papers we have tried. More likely to be something like 1/3 * 1/4 as that would have been covered in school I think
