      10 16/20

    • E.

      11 3/5

    Correct Answer
    E. 11 3/5
    Explanation
    To add mixed numbers, we first add the whole numbers together, which gives us 6 + 4 = 10. Then, we add the fractions together. The fractions 7/10 and 9/10 have the same denominator, so we can simply add the numerators: 7 + 9 = 16. Therefore, the sum of the fractions is 16/10. We can simplify this fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor, which is 2. This gives us 16/10 = 8/5. Putting it all together, the sum of the mixed numbers is 10 8/5. Simplifying the whole number and fraction part, we get 10 1 3/5, which is equivalent to 11 3/5.

      9 1/18

    Correct Answer
    B. 6 13/18
    Explanation
    The given expression involves adding a fraction and a mixed number. To add fractions, we need to have a common denominator. In this case, the common denominator is 18. Converting 1/6 to a fraction with a denominator of 18 gives us 3/18. Now we can add the fractions: 3/18 + 6/18 = 9/18. Simplifying this fraction gives us 1/2. Adding the whole numbers, 1/2 + 6 gives us 6 1/2. Therefore, the correct answer is 6 13/18.

      9 3/42

    • E.

      26 2/3

    Correct Answer
    E. 26 2/3
    Explanation
    When dividing a number by a fraction, we can convert the division into multiplication by taking the reciprocal of the fraction. In this case, we have 20 divided by 3/4. To find the reciprocal of 3/4, we flip the fraction to get 4/3. Then, we multiply 20 by 4/3, which gives us 80/3. We can simplify this fraction to 26 2/3, which is the final answer.

    • E.

      2 5/26

    Correct Answer
    A. 1 8/13
    Explanation
    The given expression is 2 - 5/13. To subtract fractions, we need to have the same denominator. Here, the denominator is already the same. So, we can subtract the numerators. 2 - 5 = -3. Therefore, the answer is -3/13. However, the given options do not include a negative fraction. So, to convert the negative fraction to a mixed number, we divide the numerator by the denominator. -3 divided by 13 is -1 remainder 10. Thus, the answer is 1 10/13.

    • E.

      3 2/7

    Correct Answer
    B. 34/39
    Explanation
    To divide a mixed number by a whole number, we convert the mixed number into an improper fraction. In this case, 10 6/13 can be converted to (10 * 13 + 6) / 13, which equals 136/13. Then, we divide 136/13 by 12, which can be written as 12/1. To divide fractions, we multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. Therefore, (136/13) * (1/12) = (136/13) * (1/12) = 136/156 = 34/39. So, the correct answer is 34/39.

    Explanation
    The given expression is a subtraction of mixed fractions. To subtract mixed fractions, we need to convert them into improper fractions. In this case, 1 6/7 can be written as 13/7 and 3/5 remains the same. Now, we can subtract the fractions by finding a common denominator, which is 35. The subtraction gives us 13/7 - 21/35, which simplifies to (13*5 - 21)/35 = 52/35. Further simplifying this fraction gives us 1 17/35. Therefore, the correct answer is 1 17/35.

    Explanation
    To subtract fractions, we need to have a common denominator. In this case, the common denominator is 9. So, we convert 7/9 to have a denominator of 9 by multiplying both the numerator and denominator by 1. Similarly, we convert 2/3 to have a denominator of 9 by multiplying both the numerator and denominator by 3. This gives us (7/9)*(1/1) - (2/3)*(3/3) = 7/9 - 6/9 = 1/9. Therefore, the correct answer is 1/9.
