### Jerome's First Growing Post

1/2 + 1/6 or 1/4 + 7/12

If you use the clock method your whole is out of 60.
ex.1/4 of 60 is 15. 15/60

1/2 of 60=30
1/6 of 60=10
30+10=40
40/60

-------------------------------------------------------

1/4 of 60=15
Since a clock is is divived into 12 numbers you just count 7 on the clock. 7 on a clock is 35.
7/12 of 60=35

35+15=50
50/60

50/60 is bigger then 40/60

Jerome's bike race =p

this is me and justins bike race

the bike race is 60 km long. We divided it into sections like 1/8 or 1/6 etc. Then we makred down where that would be in color.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a game where you find equilavent fractions. You must math each fractions with its much. Easy really fun yet boring at the same time. Have fun. I did. Sorta

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i caculated a 12th, 6th and the others by using thr clock method. Since the race is 60km a clock would be a perfect thing to use. 60 divived by 12 is 5. 60 divivied by 6 is 10 and so on and so on. I did not see any patterns.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2 ways you can use to get 1/4 and 3/4 of number is by division and multplication.

Ex. If you use the number 16 and you dived it by 4 you get 4. Thats 1/4. If you want 3/4 you times it by 3. and you get 12. 3/4 of 16 is 12 and 1/4 of 16 is 4.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1/3+1/4 or 2/6+ 6/12 which is larger

If you use the clock method you can see which one is bigger.

60 divided by 3 is 20.

60 divided by 4 is 15

15+20= 35 =35/60

------------------------

since its 2/6 you times it by 2 so it will be easier to divide so it will be 4/12

4/12 on a clock is 20 beacasue 4 on the clock is 20

6/12 is the same as 1/2 so 1/2 of 60 is 30

30+20=50 50/60

50/60 is larger then 35/60

Title 1/1
Label 1/1
Question 3 5/5
Question 4/5 3/3
Question 6 5/5
Question 7 2/3
Question 8 4/5
Question 9 /5
Question 10 6/7

Total 32/35
i gave my slef a 33 because some questions are not answered right but stiil make sense.
