# Lesson 110 – Doodles Do Algebra

Today your child learns to reduce a complex fraction into a simple one. It sounds complicated but it is really simple. First you convert it from a mixed quantity into a fraction and then divide.

DoodleOne shows your child how to do the reduction using the example of 2 1/3 / 3 1/2 and walking your child through the example steps on the worksheet is all you need to do. If your child is confused, walk him through one or two of the problems as well – remember the important thing is that he really understands it, not that he does it all on his own when he is confused. Each new lesson builds on past lessons, so he will get a chance to show you he knows the material later if he needs the extra help now.

2. $21/2a$
3. $2ax/(2+ay)$
