Okay, bear with me, I am taking pre-algebra. :P|
There's this word problem I have to do involving multiplying fractions and mixed numbers.
Mary jogged 4 1/4 miles per hour for 1 1/3 hours. During 1/3 of her jogging time, she was jogging in the rain. How many miles did she jog in the rain?
This is driving me batty, because it should be simple. The section this problem is in is multiplying fractions, not dividing them. :\ But the way it's phrased makes it sound like multiplication AND division is involved. ;_; I already looked up the answer, but I still keep trying to work out the problem to that answer, to no avail. I can't figure out how to write out and solve this damn equation.
