Reduce your fraction 2/4 down to 1/2, and then find the smallest common factor of 2 and 6 (which happens to be 6). Since you multiply 2 by 3, then you have to multiply your numerator by 3 also, giving you 3/6. Since your denominators match, it means you have found the answer.

## Solution 2

2/4 = x/6

2/4 = 1/2 = 3/6

you find the least common denominator which will be 12

2/4 = 6/12

you multiply 4 x 3 to get 12 so you have to multiply 2 x 3 and get 6.

now if you divide  both numbers 6/12 by 2 then 6/12=1/2.

another way to look at this one is 2 is half of 4, so what is half of 6.

../.... = .../......

Question
You travel 60 kilometers in 1.5 hours. What is your average speed?
Solution 1
technically you could write 60km/1.5hr but I think you meant km/hr.

So your traveling 60km every 1.5hours but you only want to know how much every one hour. think of 1.5 as 150% of what you want (which is one) take 60 divide it into one hundred pieces (60/150) then multiply buy 100% of what you want (quotient of last problem * 100)
final equation looks like this (60/150) 100 = 40 km/ hr
Ps. *=multiply
Solution 2
Your average speed is 60 km per 1.5 hours. In a somewhat more popular unit, it's 60/1.5=40 km/hr.

Question
Round 157 to the nearest ten
Solution 1
160
because 157 is closer to 160 than 150
Solution 2
If the number you are rounding is followed by 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9, round the number up (+1).

If the number you are rounding is followed by 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4, round the number down (no change).

157 160
Question
Solve for x 3(8x-5)=-4(7-6x)
Solution 1

3(8x - 5) = -4(7 - 6x)

Distribute 3 and -4 inside their respective parentheses.

24x - 15 = -28 + 24x

24x + 13 = 24x

Subtract 24x from both sides.

13 = 0

This is an untrue statement, so that means there are no solutions to this equation.

Solution 2

Question
Use expressions for odd integers to confirm the conjecture that the product for two odd integers is an odd integer.
Solution 1
2n + 1  et 2n + 3 are two odd integers with n integer
(2n+1)(2n+3) = 4n² + 8n + 3 =2(4n² + 4n) + 3
2(4n² + 4n) is an even integer so 2(4n² + 4n) + 3 is an odd number
because the sum of an even number and an odd number is an odd number.
Question
