A teacher writes two equations as shown.

J = 3/8 (1/3 – 2/5)

K = 3/4 (2/3 – 5/6)

Part A Solve both equations. Express your answer as a fraction in simplest form. Show your work.

Part B What is the sum of J and K ? Express your answer as a fraction in simplest form. Show your work.

Part C What fraction when added to the result of Part B would equal zero? Explain your answer.

Part D Create a real-world situation to represent the description in Part C.

## Answers ( No )

A) J = (3/8)*(5/15 -6/15) = (3/8)*(-1/15) = (1/8)*(-1/5) = -1/40

.. K = (3/4)*(4/6 -5/6) = (3/4)*(-1/6) = (1/4)*(-1/2) = -1/8

B) (-1/40) +(-1/8) = -1/40 -5/40 = -6/40 = -3/20

C) The opposite of -3/20 is 3/20

D) Real world: I’m answering Brainly.com questions and one asks the opposite of -3/20.
