The answer is stiill the same. e) 114/19 The fractions have a common denominator already so you just add it through.
they're fractions. not division questions (BEDMAS)

In that case, I was right to have 114/19. Since it was modified to have different denominators, you need to solve for common denominators first. 95 is common to both fractions. __________________ *Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death.

You have to mulitply the top number by 5 which is where you get 475. so you have 475/95 which reduced is 25/5. I've seemed to have done something wrong. I'm sure that is how you add two fractions. __________________ "Keep fit and have fun" Bodybreak Home Computer: Dell inspiron 2200, 1.66 GHZ processor, 80 gig harddrive, 512mb ram, cd/dvd rom, wireless network card.
