Doritos Fraction Growing Post

Part 1

1.

2. Mixed fractions and improper fratctions are the same because they basically mean the same thing. Say you have an improper fraction of 10/7 you can also write it as a mixed fraction.

10/7 = 1 3/7

3. http://www.visualfractions.com/LowestCircle.html it explains how fractions are in lowest terms.. yaadaa yaadaa yaadaa... with some circle.

4. a) If a basket of apples weighs 3/4 lb. and a basket of pears weighs 2/3 lb. How much do the baskets weigh together?

b) If you have 3 1/2 pizzas and you and your friends eat 2 1/4 how much pizza is left?

5. suuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrreeeeeeee

6.http://www.visualfractions.com/ its basically the same website as # 3 but this time its not on a particular page its the whole website! And its also talks about dividing and multiplying fractions if your interested.

3. If your having trouble understanding how to multiply fractions click here.

This site seems simple enough to understand. It even has a game (*cough*) for you.




5. If your having trouble understanding dividing fractions click here.

It seems really easy to understand. It shows you examples and stuff. It has a glance, in depth, examples and workout pages for you to practice.

a) If a basket of apples weighs 3/4 lb. and a basket of pears weighs 2/3 lb. How much do the baskets weigh together?

3/4 = 9/12
2/3 = 8/12
9/12 + 8/12
= 17/12 or 1 5/12

b) If you have 3 1/2 pizzas and you and your friends eat 2 1/4 how much pizza is left?

3 1/2 = 3 2/4
2 1/4 = 2 1/4
3 2/4 - 2 1/4
= 1 1/4



good job!

4. a) If a basket of apples weighs 3/4 lb. and a basket of pears weighs 2/3 lb. How much do the baskets weigh together?
3/4 --- 9/12
2/3---8/12
9/12 + 8/12
=17/12 [that's improper] the mixed fraction would be 1 5/12 =D


b) If you have 3 1/2 pizzas and you and your friends eat 2 1/4 how much pizza is left?
3 1/2 --- 3 2/4
2 1/4 --- 2 1/4
3 2/4 - 2 1/4
~.~ =1 1/4
... is that right? i think it is i'm not sure xD
