BUT

It looks like your symbolic notation means that you need to ADD x[sub:3or96hhs]1[/sub:3or96hhs]/49 + x[sub:3or96hhs]2[/sub:3or96hhs]/49 + x[sub:3or96hhs]3[/sub:3or96hhs]/49...up to and including x[sub:3or96hhs]11[/sub:3or96hhs]/49. Remember that when you add fractions with the same denominator, you add the numerators, and put the result over the common denominator. So, for example, if you are adding 3/49 + 5/49 + 16/49, that would be (3 + 5 + 16)/ 49, or 24/49

Follow those directions, and you should be able to arrive at the correct answer...except that your directions say that you need to express your answer to two decimal places.

Let's see if we can use a bit of common sense here.valnadam said:If my answer says round two decimals which way do I go with the decimals? Thanks

300/49=6.12244

Round two decimals = .061244 or 61.22?

300/49 is VERY CLOSE to 300/50, right?

300/50 is 6.

So....

your answer should be very close to 6.

Where should you put the decimal point in 61244 so that you get a result that's close to 6?

And "round to two decimal places" means that your final answer should have two decimal places in it.

EXAMPLES:.....48.909168 would be 48.91 to two decimal places

.................0.038483 would be 0.04 to two decimal places
