Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
they take 1 3/4 galons within 4 1/2 days
in one day they take (1 3/4 )/ (4 1/2)
converting to mixed fraction gives
Multiply the first by the reciprocal of the second
(7/4 ) x (2/9)= 14/36
They consume 7/18 in a day
The Helvie family is going on a seven day vacation.Mr Helvie stops by
the grocery store and purchases 3 gallons of milk.Based on the number of
gallons of the family drinks per day, will he have to purchase more
milk during thier vacation?
vacation is 7 days
it will need 7 x 7/18 gallon
= 2 11/18
Since its not greator than 3 gallons, they will not need more milk.
how does your understanding of the multiplicative inverse help you determine the unit rate for complex fractions?
it helps me in division of complex fractions as well as in simplifying.
