 Question 254231: Hello, I have enclosed a sample problem of simplifying fractions. The part that I don't understand is "the remainder from division is 4" after I have computed the whole problem. My question to you is how do you get the remainder from division with any simplifying fraction? Sample: You have to divide both the top part (numerator 1058) and the bottom part (denominator 70) by their greatest common divisor 2: Since 1058/2 = 529 and 70/2 =35, we have; Note that is an IMPROPER fraction because 529 is greater than 35. We have to separate its integer part now. Dividing 529 by 35, we get 15.1142857142857. The integer part of it is 15. "The remainder from division is 4."

 Question 254609: I know the answer to the problem, I just need it explained. The book I'm using is a refresher, and it doesn't explain or give a similar example to this problem at all. It's a ridiculous problem of fractions divided by fractions, so basically fractions of fractions with a variable in for good measure. I hope I can make sense of it here: The answer is apparently I figured the -18/11 easy, but what happened to the variable fractions is far beyond me. Sorry for all the parenthesis... it was the only way I could get the problem to look anything like my workbook. Any takers? Click here to see answer by Alan3354(30993)

 Question 254601: I'm having a problem with dividing fractions. The problem involves a recipe for 12 people and I have to find out how much of a certain ingredient would be for 10 people instead of 12. For example the recipe has 2 1^4 cups of sugar for 12 people. I know that I have to find out how much the recipe would be for one person before I can figure out how much it would be for ten people. So, I'm thinking that I would take the 2 1^4 and divide by 12. 2 1^4 divided by 12 equals 3 ^16 on my calculator< but I want to figure it out myself. 2 1^4 divided by 12 Keep - change - change??? 2 1^4 X 1^12? I can't get it right. Once I figure out how much the fraction would be for one person, then I think I can multiple X 10 to find out how much of that ingredient would be for 10 people. Unless I'm totally wrong. Thanks for looking at this for me. I really need some help. Click here to see answer by solver91311(16885)

 Question 255397: Is the rate 1/4 cup of butter /4 eggs equivalent to the rate 3 cups of butter /48 eggs? 1/4 cup of butter is the numerator and 4 eggs the denominator. 3 cups of butter is the numerator and 48 eggs is the denominator in the second fraction. I can simplify the second fraction of 3/48 to 1/16 but not sure what to do with the first fraction since it has a fraction for a numerator. I know I must simplify both fractions to find out if they are equivalent. Click here to see answer by josmiceli(9680)
