t * (1/4) = 7/12

t = (7/12) / (1/4)

t = (7/12) * (4/1)

t = 7/3

He ran round the track (7/3) times, or three-seventh times.

(-5/9) = -2v + (1/3)

(-5/9) - (1/3) = -2v

-5/9 - 3/9 = -2v

-8/9 = -2v

(-8/9) / -2 = v

(8/9) * (1/2) = v

4/9 = v

v is four ninths

He has used 150/400 of his minutes this far

or 75/200 << dividing by 2

or 3/8 << dividing by 25

three eighths

1/4t=7/12

3/12t=7/12 (common denominator)

divide both sides by 3/12 =>

t=2 1/3

-5/9=-2v+1/3 >> common denom. -5/9=-2v+3/9

add 5/9 to both sides, add2v to both sides ==> 2v=8/9

divie both sides by 2 ==> v = 4/9

150/400 = 3/8

(1/4)t=(7/12) distance x number of times= total distance

solve for t and you get 2 and 1/3

(-5/9)= -2v+(1/3)

(-8/9)=-2v (subtract both sides by 1/3)

v=(4/9) (divide both sides by -2)

he used 150 out of 400 minutes so (150/400)

simplify that to 3/8

LOL at below 7/3 does not equal three-sevenths
