Mainly because it is equal to 60% .

6 3/5 / (7/8) = (33/5) / (7/8) = (33/5) * (8/7) = 264/35 = 7 19/35

3/5 ÷ 7/12 = 36/35 or 11/35

35/5 is equal to the whole number 7.

35 / 7 is equal to 5.

3/5-3/7=(3*7)/(5*7)-(3*5)/(7*5)=21/35-15/35=6/35

(3/7) - (2/5) = (15/35) - (14/35) = 1/35

5 over 7 is greater than 3 over five. You have to find a common denominator. The common denominator is 35 so 5 over 7 would become 25 over 35 and 3 over 5 would become 21 over 35. 25/35 > 21/35 = 5/7 > 3/5

It is: 3/5+5/7 = 46/35 and half way is 23/35

2/5 + 3/7 = 14/35 + 15/35 = 29/35

2/5 + 3/7 = 14/35 + 15/35 = 29/35

No - expressed as a proper fraction in its simplest form, by dividing the numerator and denominator by 7, 21/35 is equal to 3/5 or three fifths.

The common denominator here is 35. 3/5+5/7 is 21/35+25/35. This is 46/35 or 1 and 11/35.

5/14 * 21/35 = 5/14 * 3/5 = 1/14 * 3/1 = 3/14

No. 3 over 5 is equal.

An expression equal to 15 + 35, using distributive property, is 5(3 + 7). Under distributive property, 5*3=15 and 5*7=35.

21 / 35 = (7*3) / (7*5) = 3 / 5 ■

No

46/35

21/35 = 3/5

21/35 = 3/5

35 + 3/5 needs to have common denominators to be successfully added together. Since 35 is a whole number we can simply place it over 1 which keeps the same value. So now our problem looks like this: 35/1 + 3/5. Now we need common denominators, 1 and 5 are both common multiples of 5. Let's multiply 35/1 to make it a number over 5. 35/1 (5) + 3/5 is now 175/5 + 3/5 which equals 178/5 which reduces to 35 and 3/5.
