Yay! First Fraction Growing Post!
1)Well expressing fractions in lowest terms simply means to get a fraction to its smallest form
2)well.........They are the same for they could be the same number just... written in a different... form
Like its got how to change into lowest terms and cool fraction type calculators for the job! =-) also has other subjects + calculators and places to test yourself
4a)Im going to use one of my favorite things in my problem... PIE! I have 7/4 of a pie (or several pies) and the person sitting next to me only has 2/3 of a pie. I lean over and say that we should combine or pies. He agrees. So how much pie do we have together?
4b)Im going to use pie again! I have...um ...lets see... 4 3/4 of a pie! Yay! So much pie! I got hungry and decided to eat 3 1/2 of my pie in one sitting! i probably couldn't do this but... this is an imagnary scenario! So how much pie would I have left?
No pie was harmed in the making of these questions
5) I answered Kale's questions (8-41), Aldrin's questions (8-73) and Mike L.'s questions (8-73)
Crazy website! Its got the whole scoop on pretty much everything you want to know about fractions! It explains how to do like everything with cool pictures too! =-)
Extra)I left comments on the posts i answered questions too!
Please dont copy my idea! Hope you like it!
1) Alright i did it!!!!
Or you could do it as a picture
3)This site has quite detailed steps on how to multiply with everything! Plus im combining two questions in one by saying it also has a dividing fractions section too with all the same cool stuff!!!
Now just with fractions...
6) I nomonate Jennifer of 8-41 because she used very good pictures to explain her questions.
I nomonate Aldrin of 8-73 because he put his whole post on the scrolly thing and used alot of pictures.
I nomonate Dhona of 8-16 because she used pictures for most of her questions.
I nomonate Katho of 8-17 because of really cool pictures.
7) Well... Guess what time it is again!! Thats right!!! Its time for pie!!!
O.K. So one day I had 4 2/3 of a pie. Yay! I eat 1 4/5 of a pie. Yay! All of a sudden I find 2 1/2 pies under the couch!! Yay! Then i go and win a bet and my total amount of pies get multiplyed by 2 1/6!! Yay!! Then I think to myself I wonder how many groups of 6/7 I could make with all pie right now!!! Its your job to figure that out. Good luck, and I'd recomend using a calculator.
and yes i will try to animate this too!
Now I choose to answer Alex's question. (8-17)
If i drove a car for 1 1/4 hours at an average speed of 90km.How far did I get?
First gotta change 90 into a fraction by going 90/1
then change 1 1/4 into an improper fration 5/4
Can you see any cross reduction because i can't!
5 x 90=450
4 x 1 = 4
now how many times does 4 go into 450???
112 times with 2/4 left (or 1/2)
final answer is that u would go 112 and 1/2 km
