Today in class, Mr. Harbeck and Mr. Bache told us to explain this, Why is 4/4 + 4/4 = 2 and 4÷4 +4÷4 = 2 the same?
My thoughts are '/' is just another symbol for '÷'. If you do the equations, it will be the same answer. 4/4 is a fraction which equals one whole, so 4/4 + 4/4 = 2. The other one is saying the same thing but its not like a fraction you have to divide four by four which equals one.
Basically they're the same but in different form.
Thank you for reading my sribepost :)
