Erick's First Growing Post

3.1/2 + 1/6 OR 1/4 + 7/12

As you can see by my diagrams, 7/12 plus 1/4 is clearly bigger than 1/2 plus 1/6. If you use clocks than 1/2 plus 1/6 = 40 minutes, and if using clocks again, 1/4 plus 7/12 = 50 minutes.

4.Erick's Bike Race

5.This bike race has all of the proper markings and it has all of the kilometers marked.It is also very accurate!!

6.You should really try out this fraction game!!! Heres the link

There are a series of levels and questions that you have to answer. Each level gets more and more difficult. There may be only 5 levels but it is a load of fun!!!!

7.
Go back to your picture of the bike race. Tell us all about how you calculated the Km positions at a twelfth, sixth and a third. did you see any patterns?
For a third, I divided it by 3. For a sixth i divided it by 6 and for a twelfth i divided it by 12. The pattern is that Those numbers are all in common. Because half of 6 is 3. 3 multiplied by 2 is 6. And 6 times 2 is 12. And 12 divided by 2 is 6.

8.What are 2 different ways to find a quarter and 3/4 of a number. Use one of the following 16, 22, or 110?
To figure out 1/4 of 16 you must divide 16 by four. That gives you 4. To find out what 3/4's of 16 is you must divide by four than multiply by three because there is a three in 3/4'

9.Is this equal or different.....
35/70 and 1/2

What is 70 Divided by 2? 35!!!
And we all know what One Half Is!!!!
Those Fractions Are Very EqUaL!!!!!
They are the same!!!!
