Question 11

The Questions was:
Half a can of paint covers 1/3 of a room. How much paint is needed to cover the whole room?

1/3 = half can of paint
2/3 = whole can of paint
3/3 = one whole and one half paint cans.

You need one whole and one half paint cans to paint the whole wall.

well done, gail, but for the ratio chart, you should have shown what you did to the fractions to get the answer, like did you multiply? or divide?
