Question

# Simplify

Hint:

### The first step to multiply fractions is to multiply the numerators. The second step is to multiply the denominators. Finally, simplify the fraction obtained to get the result.

## The correct answer is:

### Here, we have to find the product of 3⁄5 and 3⁄8.

We have, 3⁄5 × 3⁄8

= (3×3)⁄(5×8)

= 9⁄40.

hence, the correct option is A.

The factions can also be simplified first before multiplying by factoring out common factors in the numerator and the denominator.

Another approach to the question could be that first we can cut both the 3s, i.e., the 3 in the numerator of the first fraction and the 3 in the denominator of the second fraction. Also, we can reduce the 8 in the denominator of the first fraction and the 2 in the numerator in the second fraction. The 8 gets reduced to 4.

Hence,

Thus, option (a) is the correct option.

### Maria bought 3 pounds of ground beef for hamburgers. If the hamburger is sold for $4.19 a pound, calculate the money Maria spent.

Another approach to the question could be that we could add $4.19, i.e., the price per pound 3 (pounds of ground meat bought) times.

Thus, the total money spent by Maria = $4.19 +$4.19 + $4.19

= $ 12.57

Thus, option (a) is the correct option.

### Taylor earns $8.50 per hour as an auto mechanic. The total money Taylor will earn if she works 4.5 hours on Friday is

Another approach to the question could be that add $8.50, i.e., the money she earns per hour 4.5 times to get the total money she earns.

Therefore, total money she earns on Friday = $8.50 + $8.50 + $8.50 + $8.50 + $(8.50/2) [here er divide the last 8.50 by 2 because the number of hours she worked is 4.5, i.e., four and a half]

=$ 38.25
