3/5 divided by (1/2-1/5)= 2
is it correct? if it is can you explain to me how I got this answer? :p
Yes...your answer of 2 is indeed correct, and here is how to do it:First, to work with (1/2 - 1/5), you must find a common denominator for these two fractions. They can both be expressed with a denominator of 10, and here is what that would look like:(1/2 - 1/5) is the same as (5/10 - 2/10). Then,5/10 - 2/10 = 3/10. Now, you have3/5 divided by 3/10, and that can be accomplished by inverting 3/10, then multiplying straight across, like so:3/5 x 10/3 = 30/15 = 2.So your answer is 2.
