Combining like terms. 3. 1 r + 1/2 r

OpenStudy (anonymous):

just add 1 and 1/2

OpenStudy (anonymous):

unless 3 is part of the problem. is it 3.1 or just 1

OpenStudy (anonymous):

The 3 is what question it is. So its not part of it.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Just 1

OpenStudy (anonymous):

o ok so its just 1.5r isn't it unless u don't use decimals. r u supposed to leave it as an improper fraction?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Their is no 1.5 in the question?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i know but 1 + 1/2 is the same as 1 + 0.5

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Oh yeah sorry !

OpenStudy (anonymous):

is that correct then 1.5r ?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yeah! Thank youuuu! :D

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok no problem

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Do you know this one? 1m - 1/2m

OpenStudy (anonymous):

is it 1.5 m

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yepp

OpenStudy (anonymous):

1/4 - 3x + 1/4

OpenStudy (anonymous):

combining like terms ^^

OpenStudy (anonymous):

but it kind of depends if your teacher wants u to leave it as a fraction or not cuz i know sometimes I'm not supposed to use decimals

OpenStudy (anonymous):

What would it be as a fraction?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

the first one would be 1 1/2r as a mixed number and 3/2r as improper fraction and then the second one would be 1/2m

OpenStudy (anonymous):

the last one you gave me would just be 3x because 1/4 cancels itself out
