Today in math class, Mr. Harbeck and Mr. Bache told us to explain how (4/4) + (4/4) = 2 is the same as (4÷4) + (4÷4) = 2 .
In my opinion, they mean the same thing. Because in fractions, 4/4 equals 1 (whole), the way you get that is, you divide the top number by the bottom number. But look 4÷4 also equals 1, because you are dividing the first number by the second number.
Ok so if 4/4 = 1, and you add it by the same thing (4/4=1) you would get 2.
Well if you you add 4÷4 = 1 by itself (4÷4=1) you would also get 2.
So it's just the same thing but with different signs .
