3. which larger 1/2 + 1/6 or 1/4 + 7/12.
1/6 + 1/2= 1/2 of an hour is 30 minutes (60/2)
1/6 of an hour is 10 minutes
(60/6)
30 minutes+10 minutes=40 minutes

1/4 + 7/12=

1/4 of an hour is 15 minutes (60/4)
1/12 of an hour is 5 minutes (60/12) then you multiply it by 7 because there's 7/12 (5*7)
If add it all up you will get 5o minutes

5. This is my Bike race
I used every square as an kilometer
I used the karate chop move to solve this problem
To find the twelfth you multiply 60 by 12 (every 5 spaces)

to find the third you multiply 60 by 3 (every 20 spaces)
To find the sixth you multiply 60 by 6 (every 10 spaces)
6. A good Fraction game website is http://www.kidsolr.com/math/fractions.html
This site is good because it helps you understand fractions better.
8. One way to find a quarter and 3/4 of a number is to divide the number by 4.
You can also use money to help you. a quarter is 25 cents so you can use quarters.
9. Which is bigger 1/6 or 1/5

1/5 1/6

You can see that 1/5 is bigger than1/6.
