• Wow. Just because he barley messes up means you can pounce on him when he does? He even states that he did.
• That is fact like he makes a mistake at and you just jump him common, folk.
• I'm confused about the remainder I thought 23 divided by 6 is 3 r5 or is it the way you are doing right?
• Yes, it is the right answer.
• Just watch the videos...

• When Sal creates extra instances of the denominator, for ex. at and , it confuses me on an intuitive level because it looks like extra numbers are being created. By what rule is a denominator allowed to be replicated in that way? Thanks.
• Well, the values are the same. 18/6=3, and 6+6+6/6 = 6/6 + 6/6 + 6/6 is an easier way of writing it, because 6+6+6/6, 18/6, and 6/6 + 6/6 + 6/6 all equal 3.

• A Mixed number has a whole number part and a fraction part.
Rather than simply having a fraction with a bigger numerator than a denominator (an 'improper fraction'), we sometimes write out the full number and the left part of a fraction. For example, we say "1 and 3/4 inches", rather than "7/4" of an inch.
• thank yo for the vids!!
