question 6 on there
2. 625/81 = (7*81 + 58)/81 = 7 58/81, so your answer's the same but in a different form
3. Oh that space is a multiplication is it!?!?! Since when did a bloody space mean multiply. Morons.

4. Solve: 0.25 + 0.65

A. 1/2
B. 9/10
C. 4/7
D. 2/9
E. 5/16
4. The space isn't a multiplication. It's a plus, e.g. as is customary for fractions so they're not morons.

10. They are... the OP is just being a bit wierd... lol
11. Ah ok, well then my advice would be to talk to your maths teacher and go over commonly used notation eg xy is x multiplied by y
That or make sure you've read and understood the question before you attempt to answer it.
