In this lesson, Julie Harland teaches us how to simplify expressions that contain both fractions and decimals. She shows us three different ways to solve the problems, including changing everything to decimals, changing everything to fractions, and using a combination of both. By following the order of operations and simplifying inside parentheses first, we can write the answer in both decimal form and as a fraction or mixed number. With practice, we can master this tricky concept and confidently tackle problems with mixed expressions.
