    What is 1 1/3 plus 2 2/9? Please Simplify if needed.

    • A.

      3 3/12

    • B.

      3 1/4

    • C.

      3 5/9

    • D.

      3 1/3

    Correct Answer
    C. 3 5/9
    Explanation
    To find the sum of 1 1/3 and 2 2/9, we need to convert both fractions to have the same denominator. The least common multiple of 3 and 9 is 9. So, we convert 1 1/3 to 3/3 + 1/3 = 4/3, and 2 2/9 to 18/9 + 2/9 = 20/9. Now, we can add the fractions: 4/3 + 20/9 = (4*3)/(3*3) + 20/9 = 12/9 + 20/9 = 32/9. We can simplify this fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor, which is 1. Therefore, the simplified answer is 32/9. In mixed fraction form, this is 3 5/9.

      2/3

    • D.

      4/6

    Correct Answer
    C. 2/3
    Explanation
    To find the lowest terms of a fraction, we need to simplify it by dividing the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor. In this case, the greatest common divisor of 20 and 30 is 10. Dividing both the numerator and denominator by 10 gives us 2/3. Therefore, the fraction 20/30 in lowest terms is 2/3.

      .3

    • D.

      50

    Correct Answer
    A. 20
    Explanation
    To find 1/5 of 100, we divide 100 by 5. When we divide 100 by 5, we get 20. Therefore, 1/5 of 100 is equal to 20.
