Okay, I figured out my 'mistake'; I was using the actual multiplication symbol (×), instead of the required lower case x. In my view, either should be acceptable, but that's for M to decide.

What's the equation you're trying to type in? Seems to work for me when I type [warning: full spoiler] (29/41)x(46/62)=(58/82)x(69/93). But I've tried a few different formats and equations and they all seem to work.

I came up with a correct solution which I confirmed with the answer in the back of the book. However, I've tried several formats of my equasion in the answer space on this site (including the ones in the explanation and the illustration), but nothing is accepted as correct. What's the proper format?
