• if 7/10 is 70/100 what is 70/10, 700/100?
• Yep! A really easy way to see if 70/10 and 700/100 are equivalent is solve them. 70/10 is equal to 70 divided by 10. The quotient is 7. 700 divided by 100 is also 7. Now we know that they are both equivalent.
• I couldn't figure it out when I stopped the vidio.Could you
• it is like this, first turn the 10's into 100' by multiplying by ten then add normally like 8/10 + 14/100 so 8x 10 = 80 and 80+14=94 so 94 is the answer
• Why when we are doing the fraction like 80/100 or 50/100 why do have to multiply why can't we divide, add or subtract.
• how do you know which one to do first?
• How do you multiply 7/10 by 10/10?

• By the conventional methods, the numerators , 7 and 10, multiplied together will give 70, and the denominators, both 10, multiplied together will give 100. But if you reduce the 10/10 to the simplest form, you won't really be needing to do any multiplying at all.

• What if the denominator was a one digit number...will it be harder to solve it?
