### Fraction Growing Post Part .... and now PART 2!!!

OMG!!!FRACTIONS!!!

1.

.

2.They are the same because they are still equal the same decimal like say .55

3. Shows and tells what Lowest terms means... and other stuff that has to do wid math http://www.superkids.com/aweb/tools/math/fraction/reducing/howto.sht

4. a.) 3/4 + 2/3= 1 5/12

b.)Unknown man wanted to know how much flour he should put in his batter so her measured it and got 2 1/3 when it's suppose to be 1 1/3. Subtract the two fractions inorder to find out how much flour is the extra amount.

5. commented on: Layco's 8-73, Rebecca.G from 8-17, and........ kahlah120 from 8-41

6. Tells you some tips/info on add.sub. and even multi.and divide for fractions :D There now eveerryybodys' happy :D:P

Part 2:

2.When you multiply fractions the fraction gets smaller.

Example 1): 1/2 x 3/4 = ... You first have to change the fraction 1/2 until u get an equal denominator that 4 could fit into as well as 2 so like this... 1/2 (x each by 2) = 2/4 and 3//4 (x each by 1)= 3/4 then 2/4 x 3/4 ....Now u just multiply going across like this.

1 x 3= 3

} = 3/8, and that's ur answer. ^_^

2 x 4= 8

2) And here is a pictoral example....

3. Here u go the exact sameone me put on the part one, cause' well... it has the same stuff in it already and I already mentioned what it bout.

4. When u divide ractions they get bigger I think.

Example 1):

P.S. on #4- not sure If I did any of that right or not. :P

5. Once again here is the same site I used for everyone of these q's that have this question... But I'll tell it again it has information ... a bit on how to divide fractions and I think it shows a few examples on it too. It also has stuff on adding,subtracting, and multiplying fractions. There is even some games u can play but I'm not quite sure if they have on fractions or not.

6. The 4 people I chose to be in the Growing Post Hall of Fame are...

Ingrid from 8-73, because her pictures are clear and her work is easy to understand, and because I like the little kitty picture at the bottom :P

Michael S 8-17, because his pictures were very clear and easy to see and I could understand almost all of his work. (P.S-u'll have to scroll doen to the bottom to find his post,sry.)

Yvanne 8-16, because I liked the way she did her pictures and they were clear and easy to read & understand. (P.S.- U'll have to scroll down somewhere near the bottom again to find her post :/)

and...

Kim from 8-41, because her work is easy to understand and her pics. r easy to see, and because it looked like she was the only one done...well besides Squeaky_Cheeks 74 but I think that person's was for sumethin else. So yeps. ( Scroll down, I don't think I need to tell u people cause it's like just there.)

7. Okay Unknown dude made 2 piles of his homework, one pile math the other LA. His math pile has 3/4 of work to do while the LA pile contains 4 stuff to do. How much homework does Unknown dude have all together? (REMINDER- Incase u forget, u have to multiply.)

And the person's Q I answered was http://sp873math.blogspot.com/2006/04/zhettesus-fraction-growing-post-ins1-2.html.

8. I chose Ingrid from 8-73 for the Growing Post Hall of Fame.

P.S.S-sry 4 all the p.s' :/

the first one done part 1. Nicely done. Feel free to go back and edit anything you want. As the week progresses you should have lots of examples to add.

2 1/3-1 1/3= 1

great post!

By Rebecca G 8-17, at 5:12 PM

4. a.) 3/4 + 2/3= 1 5/12

9/12 + 8/12 = 17/12 so ya 1 5/12

b.)Unknown man wanted to know how much flour he should put in his batter so her measured it and got 2 1/3 when it's suppose to be 1 1/3. Subtract the two fractions inorder to find out how much flour is the extra amount.

Just by looking at it its is 1

anyways 2 1/3

- 1 1/3

= 1.00

Good Job and also good job to Dion.(Sorry bout that Dion)

nice pictur butt mabee usse sum spellink masticks licke miine

HEY HUNG!!!

Answers are:

4. a.) 3/4 + 2/3= 1 5/12

9/12 + 8/12 = 17/12 so its 1 5/12

2 1/3-1 1/3= 1

HURRAY 4 MIKE!

4a] 3/4 + 2/3 = 3(3)/4(3) + 2(4)/3(4) = 9/12 + 8/12 = 1 5/12

4b] Unknown man wanted to know how much flour he should put in his batter so he measured it and got 2 1/3 when it's supposed to be 1 1/3. Subtract the two fractions in order to find out how much flour is the extra amount.

2 1/3 - 1 1/3 = 1

niice post...

4.a) 3/4 + 2/3 = 1 5/12

9/12 + 8/12 = 17/12

so if you convert it in mixed numbers, you'll get 1 5/12.

b) 2 1/3 - 1 1/3 = 1

since the fractions are the same, and if you subtract it, it'll be zero so if you subtract the two whole numbers - 2-1 = 1.
