*Which set of fractions is larger 1/2 + 1/6 or 1/4 + 7/12?*

1/4+1/6 is larger because using clock, 1/4 is 15 mins and 7/12 is 35 mins and then you add them together it equals to 50 mins.

1/2+1/6, 1/2 is 3o mins and 1/6 is 10 mins and then you add them togther it equals to 40 mins.

So, it means that 1/4+7/12 is larger than 1/2+1/6

To get how many minutes is there in a fraction, you have to divide 60 ( because there is 60 mins in a clock) by the denominator and multiply it by the numerator.

In this bike race there was 60 km course .

Resting point:Every 1/8 of the way

Food wagon: Every 1/4 of the way

Water: Every 1/10 of the way

Juice: Every 1/5 of the way

Km markers:Every 1/12, 1/6 and 1/3 of the way

we had to label and show the math to see where there the staions and markers are on the course and we also had to draw a course.

FRACTION GAME

This game is a equivalent fraction game like you have to match the fractions and the pictures that is equivalent fraction.

In Bike Race...

km marker:60 divided by 12=5

60 divided by 6=10

60 divide by 3=20

the pattern i see is that every time the

divisor is cut into half the the answer

is doubled.

*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 find 1/4 of a number is to cut it into 4 pieces.Like 22 divided by 4 is 5.5

To find out 3/4 of a number is you do the same thing like before.Dividing it by 1/4, but this time you have to multiply it by 3 because you need 3/4. Like 22 divided by 4 is 5.5 then you multiply that by 3.

*Fraction Question*

**1/3+1/4 is dones not equal 2/7**

1/3+1/4 does not equal 2/7 because to add fraction, it should have the same denaminator.So then you have to find out the Least Common Factor(LCD) to get the same denaminator.

**OR****use a clock....**

**1/3 is 20 mins because I divide 60 by 3 and it equals 2o mins.**

**1/4 is 15 mins because I divide 60 by 4 and it equals 15 mins.**

**And then add them together it equals 35/60 mins and then reduce them and it equal 7/12.**

FINALLY DONE!!!:))

I think i did well in my pictures, like i tried to show the exactly thing i wrote.

I think i could improve on explainging the things better, so its easily to understand.

I think Israelie did well on the pictures. I think she need to improve on explaining in words.

GOOD JOB!!!
