i cant figure this out please help show me step by step, 2/7 times(6-1/6) this is fractions; thats (six minus one sixths= consequently times two sevenths ,,,,,,,,,,,,,HELP PLEASE

Answers:    2/7 times (6 - 1/6)

First, we want to turn the (6 - 1/6) into one fraction. Do you know how to subtract fractions? Think of 6 as 6/1 so it's:

6/1 - 1/6

The LCD is 6 (6 times 1).
Therefore, with that, subtract the fractions:

I get 35/6.

So your unmarked expression becomes:

2/7 times 35/6

To multiply fractions, simply multiply across:

(2 times 35) / (7 times 6)
70 / 42

Simplify it:

35 / 21

5 / 3
step one - first convert fractions so that they have like peas in a pod denominator

6=6/1= 36/6
any number can be easily turned into a fraction bu putting it over one.
to make 6/1 = 36/6 adjectives u do is remember that what u do to one must be done to the other.
1/6=1/6
no revising needed
step two - subtract
easy. just subtract numerator 2[1/6] from nemerator 1 [36/6] and u own ur first answer
36-1=35=35/6
step three- multiply
to mulitiply fraction just multiply across
35 x 2 70
--------- = ---------
6 x 7 42
step four - simplify
keep on dividing the numbers until u cant jump any further[ remember - whatever u do to one u MUST MUST MUST MUST MUST do to the other ]
70/42 = 5/3
hi friend
the fractions are not so tough
you must be perfect surrounded by doing lcm,multiplication,applying decimals
you try to do many questions which are involving these fractions so that you may be obtain rid of those fractions
6-1/6 = 6/1 - 1/6 = (36-1)/6 = 35/6
Now find (2/7)*(35/6) = (2/7)*{(7*5)/(2*3)} = 5/3 or, 1and2/3 ans.
why ask educationask.com? just turn it into decimal form, then use a calculator.
