### Paul's First Growing Post

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

1/2 = 30 min
1/6 = 10 min 1/2 +1/6 = 40min

1/4= 15min
7/12=5min 1/4 + 7/12 = 50min

1/4 + 7/12 is larger because 50min is larger than 40 min.

PAUL's BIKE RACE !

This is my bike race. Alicia and i colored the boxes that were pit stops (water stations etc).
Then we did some math work at the bottom and drew a legend.
I did long division that is how i calculated the km positions. No i didnt see any patterns i think.
1/2 + 7/12 equals 65 minutes. I got this answer by using the clock method.
1/2 = 30 min 7/12 = 35 min 30 + 35 = 65
65 minutes.
This game site is good because it teaches you more stuff about fractions and distances.
I played this game for like 10 min, its kinda fun, then it just gets boring. It taught me some stuff about fractions and it was fun.
16- I divided 16 by 4 and that is how i got the quarter for 16; a quarter of 16 is 4.
The second way: I halfed 16 and got 8 then i halfed 8 and got 4. Then i did 4 x 3 = 12. 3/4 of 16 is 12.
