Alexandria has one box of M&M's with 36 pieces.

If she has 9 friends to divide it with,

how many would each person have?

niice work. By the way... gotta answer your questions...

4. a)

3/4 + 2/3

4&3 can be divided as a result of 12.

the denominator would be 12.

there are three 4's in a twelve so 3x3 = 9

9/12

there are four 3's in a twelve so 4x2 = 8

8/12

9/12 + 8/12

= 17/12

in mixed number, 17 divided by 12 is equals 1 5/12.

4. b)

2 1/3 - 1 1/4

the denominator would be 12.

there are four 3's in a twelve so 4x1 = 4.

2 4/12

there are three 4's in a twelve so 3x1 = 3.

1 3/12

2 4/12 - 1 3/12

= 1 1/12

there finished.

4. a) 3/4 + 2/3

The common denominator would be 12 also known as the GFC.

3/4 = 3x3=9 4x3=12 9/12

2/3 = 2x4=8 3x4=12 8/12

now that the denominators are the same, you can add both of the numerators.

9+8=17

the answer is 17/12

as a mixed number, the answer would be 1 5/12

4. b) 2 1/3 - 1 1/4

The common denominator would be 12 also known as the GCF (Greatest Common Factor)

2 1/3 = 1x4 3x4=12

1 1/4 = 1x3 4x3=12

now that the demonators are the same, you can now subtract.

2 4/12 - 1 3/12 = 1 1/12

since this is a mixed number, the answer for an improper fraction would be 13/12

4) a) Laay has 3/4 scoops of ice cream and her friend Sha has 2/3 scoops. How much scoops do they have all together?

ANSWER :

3/4 + 2/3 = 9/12 + 17/12

9/12 + 17/12 = 17/12 or 1 5/12

b) Anne has 2 1/3 bag of candy. If she gives Mia 1 1/4 of her candy, how much candies does she have left?

ANSWER:

2 1/3 - 1 1/4 = 4/12 - 3/12

4/12 - 3/12 = 1 7/12
