 Average/258846: Hi, I'm trying to help my son with this problem. My answer was 23/30 is that correct? Simplify: 2/3 +3/10 -2/5 2/3 + 3/10 = 11/30 then that minus 2/5? When I did it on an online math calculator, it said the answer is 17/30. I don't understand how that can be? Thanks for your help! :)1 solutions Answer 190549 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-01-20 13:59:42 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Whenever you have fractions, you need a common denominator. In this case 30 will work. It's also the least common denominator. Convert each to a fraction with a denominator of 30. So then

 Triangles/258829: Describe the possible lengths of the third side of the triangle given the lengths of the other two sides 4 inches, 7 inches 1 solutions Answer 190531 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-01-20 13:24:33 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Imagine the two lengths like hands on a clock. Since they're a triangle they cannot exactly line up to form a triangle. If they were almost on top of each other, like the clock at 12:01, the final leg would be of length, Now imagine they are 180 degrees apart like at 6:00. At that point, the final leg would have to be Since they cannot be either of those two values, the value can be any number in between them.
