 Posted - 03/24/2011 :  20:33:08 Hello. High school student. Bad with math. I have a pre-test work sheet and I need help on some of the questions. My real test is in two days.EX:1/2 + 2/3 I know this equals 3/5, but it wants me to reduce to lowest terms. I looked at the answer key and the answer is 11/6. I am confused as how it got reduced there... there's also another one on subtraction. Can I get help with both?More questions.EX: "There's a sale. 1/4 off of the price \$39 dollar jeans. What is the total cost?" I don't know how to do this...EX:"Truck rental terms. Hourly rate is \$12, plus \$0.13 per mile. Jack rented a truck at 9:30 AM and returned it ar 1:00 PM. He drove 16 miles. How much was he charged for time and mileage?" How do I write this into an equation to figure it out...??Lastly, can someone direct me to a video that simply breaks down inches, feet, centimeters, and milimeters and all that. We come across measurement a lot and I get lost quickly... that'd be helpful. Thank you reading and I'd appreciate some help. Edited by - Icarus1 on 03/24/2011 21:57:53
