In order to do that you must do the inverse (opposite operation) which means instead of adding you subtract and instead of multiplying you divide.

Subtracting Fractions w/ borrowing</li></ul>In this case you can’t subtract 3/12 from 5/12 so you have to borrow which makes the whole # 10 a 9. Again look at the denominator which is a 12 so you are borrowing 12/12. Add 12/12 to 3/12 and you get 15/12. Now you can subtract and make sure your answer is in simplest formThere is not fraction on top to subtract 1/3You must borrow from the 6 which makes the whole # a 5. When you borrow you are borrowing a whole #. Since the denominator in 1/3 is a 3 you are borrowing 3/3.Now you can subtract & make sure you answer is in simplest form <br />Greatest Common Factor (GCF)<br />1) List all of the factors for each #2) Find the greatest factor that the #’s both haveExample: 12 = 12, 1, 2, 6, 3, 4 16 = 1, 16, 2, 8, 4 GCF = 4 <br />Prime Factorization<br />726757530480<br />-41767871092<br />Factors, Multiples, Prime #’s, & Composite #’s<br />Factors: the 2 #’s you multiply to get the product.

Example 2: how many ways can u give 3 cans to 8 kids?The order of the cans does not matter so we have a combinationSince there r 8 kids….u can choose 8 different kids for the 1st can, 7 kids for the 2nd can, & 6 kids for the 3rdSo far your combination looks like this 8 x 7 x 6..Since we r using 3 cans we must divide by 3! (3 factorial)So we now have 8 x 7 x 6 divided by 3! = 336/6 = 56 ways to give 3 cans.If a problem is a combintation then the order of the items does not matter.For example if you were to make teams of 2 from matt, sara, tim, rob, and ally……then the team of tim & rob is the same as rob & tim Therefore in this case order does not matter and the problem would be a combination.To solve combinations you must use factorials…..4 factorial (4!) = 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 and 5 factorial (5!) = 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1In combinations u must divide by the factorial of the # in each team or group to get rid of duplicate groups like team rob/tim & team tim/robExample 1: how many teams of 2 can u make from sara, tim, rob, and ally?Since there r 4 kids….u can choose 4 different kids for the 1st spot on the team and then 3 kids for the 2nd spot on the team….So far your combination looks like this 4 x 3..Now we r choosing teams of 2 so we must divide by 2! (2 factorial)So we now have 4 x 3 divided by 2! = 12/2 = 6 teams of 2.Combinations
