Al, Betty, and Carl divide a pizza, which they agree is worth $12. They get a half-cheese and half-mushroom pizza. They will use the Lone Chooser Method and Betty becomes the chooser leaving Al and Carl as the dividers. I'll be using the "Lone Chooser Method" they show in this PDF : i) on...

Please help! I am having a trouble understanding what steps to take to get the answer. They show the steps here . Suppose that y is inversely proportional to x and that y-7/8 when x=16. Is the "y-7/8" supposed to be "y = 7/8", "y = -7/8", or something else? I understan...

I read the explanation on horizontal asymptotic but was wondering if there was a better way of finding out the asymptotic without observing a graph when the power of the numerator is smaller than the denominator. You mean here ? They just used the graph to explain the rule: If the power is smaller ...

5/8 + 2/7

You can learn how to add fractions here and here. Before you try the problem, do at least 2 or 3 lessons from the links. Then do the common denominator (or LCM) of 8 and 7 (its 56) to get 35/56 and 16/56. Then add, etc.
