one fourth the sum of r and ten is identical to r munus 4

It is minus ten.

To start with, you can set aside the fractions, and realize that you're dealing with whole numbers as well. 10 minus 4 is 6. So your new question is, what is six and two thirds minus three fourths. Now, let's get rid of the improper fraction. 6 x 3 = 18 18 + 2 = 20 Your new question is what is twenty thirds minus three fourths: 20/3 - 3/4 The lowest common denominator of thirds and fourths is 12. So, 20/3 x 4/4 = 80/12 3/4 x 3/3 = 9/12 So now we have eighty twelfths minus nine twelfths: 80/12 - 9/12 = 71/12 Simplifying this gives us 5 and 11/12ths.

The expression is: 10-x

the inverse of any number is the fraction of ONE over that number. so, inverse of ten is ONE/TEN or one tenth. the inverse of 3 is ONE/THREE or one third the inverse of one fourth is a bit trickier, but not if you go slowly, ONE over ONE FOURTH, which mathematically changes to 4. the inverse of cat is ONE over CAT (which is senseless, but might help you remember how to do inverses).

31/3 is.

You change five sixths into ten twelfths and three quarters into nine twelfths. Then you subtract the nine twelfths from the ten twelfths, which equals one twelfth.

10/12 - 5/12 = 5/12Five sixths is ten twelfths. So ten twelfths subtract five twelfths is five twelfths.If you mean 5/6 minus 5/12 then it is the same as 10/12 minus 5/12 = 5/12

Ten minus five is 5. Now to the fractions, change one fourth to two eighth and u have a common denominator. Now three minus two is 1 so u have an answer of 5 and 1/8.

nine twelfths eight twelfths ........ down to .........one twelfth

Ten twelfths = 5/6

Yes. Two twelfths equal one sixth, so it follows.

We convert this to twelfths to give: 10 twelfths + 4 twelfths + 9 twelfths = 23 twelfths or 1 and 11 twelfths.
