From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
We get 1 with a remainder of 1, so . That'd be 1 1/4 pans of brownies. (Okay, we might have a problem.)
Write as a mixed number.
So . That'd be 2 2/5 pans of...lasagna. See? We've got it under control.
Your friend is trying to convince you to go with him to see a movie that's 2 2/3 hours long. How many thirds of an hour is that?
Well, we want
to convert that "2" into thirds. There are three thirds in each 1, so 2
× 3 = 6 thirds of an hour. Add 2 more thirds of an hour (from the 2/3
part of the problem) to get a total of 8/3 hours. We know how valuable
every 1/3 of an hour is to you, so hopefully your friend will understand
when he learns you can't afford to lose that many of them. Besides,
that's much too long for a Harold and Kumar movie.
Convert 7 4/5 into an improper fraction.
That's 7 + 4/5. The whole number part gives us 7 × 5 = 35. Add 4 more fifths to get 39/5.
