Q:
# Find the value of the expression: 5/(-1.5+9.5) + 0.4 (7+11) / -0.2 show your work

Accepted Solution

A:

[tex] \frac{5}{ (- 1.5 + 9.5)} + \frac{0.4(7 + 11)}{ - 0.2 } \\ = \frac{5}{8} + \frac{0.4 \times 18}{ - 0.2 } \\ = \frac{5}{8} + \frac{7.2}{ - 0.2 } \\ = \frac{5}{8} - 36 \\ = - \frac{283}{8} [/tex]

[tex] \frac{5}{ (- 1.5 + 9.5)} + \frac{0.4(7 + 11)}{ - 0.2 } \\ = \frac{5}{8} + \frac{0.4 \times 18}{ - 0.2 } \\ = \frac{5}{8} + \frac{7.2}{ - 0.2 } \\ = \frac{5}{8} - 36 \\ = - \frac{283}{8} [/tex]
