1/2 + 1/6 = 40/60 or 2/3
1/2 of a clock is 30 minutes because 60 / 2 equals 30 min
1/6 of a clock is 10 minutes because 60 / 6 equals 10 min
all together it equals 40 mintues
1/4 of a clock is 15 minutes because 60 / 4 equals 15 min
7/12 of a clock is 35 minutes because 60 / 12 equals 5 * 7 equals 35 min
all together it equals 50 minutes.
so that means 1/4 + 7/12 is larger than 1/2 + 1/6.
Josephine and Angelica bike race.
For the bike race , to find the kilometer markers , we
did 60/3=20 , 60/6=10 , 60/12= 5 .
1. For our bike race, i like how we did the calculations on how we got the markers for each station.
2. For our bike race, i like how we did the legend for the bike race because it makes it look organized and prettyful.
Extra things :
http://www.funbrain.com/fract/index.html is a math game which you have to find the fraction that dosen't belong . The game is mostly about equivallent fractions. It can get harder if you chose the harder levels.
2 different ways to get 1/4 and 3/4 of 22 is to do the chopping picture thing :
another way is going 22 divided by 4= 5.5 then keep adding 5.5 so = 5.5 +5.5 + 5.5 =16.5
For a question we had to make that is similar to a question on the test, i chose a question similar to the subs question. My question is, every person gets 1/2 of a sub. So if you wanted to get to a high number such as to find how much subs are need to feed 100 people. I did 100 / 2 which is how much subs are needed for 100 people. So it is 50. To get 45 people, you go 45/2 which is 22.5, so 22.5 subs are needed for 45 people.
so that is my first growing post.
