Answer: When adding or subtracting fractions with different denominators it is important to change the denominators into the lowest common denominator by using equivalent fractions.Answer: Equivalent fractions are used to:* Simplify fractions. It is sort of inelegant to write the final solution of a problem as 123/246, when you can just as well write it as 1/2.* Add fractions. If two fractions have different denominators, you need to convert them to equivalent fractions that have… Read More

The answer depends on whether or not the tank has a geometric shape. If it has a shape that can be broken up into simply geometric shapes, each with a volume formula, you can calculate the volume of each section and add them together.

You could also fit 4 boxes placing them lengthwise across the width (96/24). That would still stack 5 high… Read More

You'd be 1,000,000 minutes old. However, in larger units some assumptions will have to be made: As months do not all have the same number of days, when the 1,000,000 minutes started would affect the number of days, so an average number of mins per month will be used; then: 525,949 min â‰ˆ 1 year â†’ 1,000,000 mins â‰ˆ 1,000,000 Ã· 525,949 years = 1 year 474,051 mins 525,949 mins Ã· 12 months â‰ˆ 43,829.1… Read More
