### Sam's Fraction Growing Post

This site shows you what to do to create equivalent fractions. It also shows you how to make fractions into lowest terms.

4a. If I had 3/4 of a pack of candy and my friend gave me 1/3 of her candy, how much candy do we have all together?

4b. If I had 2 1/5 left of my cake and gave my brother 1 2/7 of my cake how much cake do i have left?

5. I answered Jenessa's, Ingrid's, and Annalyn's.

6. Adding and Subtracting Fraction

This site shows you how to add and subtract fractions that have the same AND different denominators.

7. HA I'm done (: bwahaha finally dx

PART 2:

1. wait, its confusing

2.

This site shows you how to multiply fractions. It shows how to multiply fractions by mixed numbers and other fractions. It also shows us how to multiply fractions by a whole number and a mixed number by a mixed number.

4.

This site shows us how to divide fractions with both same denominators and different denominators. It shows us how to "invert and multiply" (reciprocals) . Also, it tells us that we need to make common denominators.

this math site it shows you how to make equivalent fractions and making them into lowest terms. This site gives an "Equivalent Fractions Table" which is uhmm interesting and helpful.?

4) a. One of my friends had 3/4 of a chocolate bar left and my other friend had 2/3 left of a chocolate bar, they decided to put their chocolate together and share it but before they divide it how muuch chocolate do they have all together?

b. Once again my friend had more chocolate bars, this time she had 2 3/5 chocolate bars left and another friend got hungry and took 1 1/3 chocolate bars from her portion. how much chocolate bars is my friend left with?

### Camy's Fraction Growing Post

**Part I ...**

3.

__Equivalent Fractions__- This site teaches you how to "identify" equivalent fractions and it also has a test you can take to learn to make equivalent fractions.

__Simplifying Fractions__- This site has the same things as the site above, but it's about simplifying fractions.

4a. SAM is always hungry. Today she had 3/4 leftover SUSHI. She got mad because that wasn't enough for her so I spared her 4/3 of mine. How much SUSHI does SAM have now (still not enough ;P)?

b. If I had 6 4/9 pizza but had to give 3 2/3 of it to JENNY, how much pizza would I have left?

5. I answered Amy's.

6. Adding Fractions - This site explains how to add fractions and gives examples.

Subtracting Fractions - This site explains how to subtract fractions and shows how to subtract fractions with the same and different denominators, mixed numbers, and improper fractions.

**Part II ...**

1. working on it ...

3. Multiplying Fractions - Click the link to get to a site that teaches you how to multiply fractions. It explains well and even gives examples.

4.

5. Dividing Fractions - A pretty simple site that explains how to divide fractions. It talks about reciprocals, dividing simple fractions as well as dividing mixed fractions. It also has some kind of game.

### OMG FRACTIONS :O growing post

http://www.aaamath.com/fra42a-idequivfract.html

this web site is easy and cool to understand equivalent fractions

http://www.themathpage.com/ARITH/add-fractions-subtract-fractions-1.htm

this site has easy wording so you dont get confused and adding and subtracting fractions

thats all kiddies =D

### Fraction Growing Post Part 1

3) http://www.helpwithfractions.com/equivalent-fractions.html

This site shows you how to create equivalent fractions and reduce it into lowest terms.

4) [a] & [b] .. I'll do soon.

5) I'll do soon.

6) http://www.helpwithfractions.com/adding-fractions.html

http://www.helpwithfractions.com/subtracting-fractions.html

These sites shows you how to add and subtract fractions.

### Ingrid's Fraction Growing Post Part 1 & 2

**Part One**3] Equivalent Fractions Has some good strategies on finding equivalent fractions. (Along with subtracting and adding.)

4a] Tim only has 3/4 of a bag of marbles while Ben has 4/3. If Tim and Ben were to combine their marbles, how much would they have altogether?

b] Kate had 9 3/9 of an apple pie, if she were to give you 5 2/3, how much would she have left?

5] I've commented on (873) Allysha, John and (817) Katho.

6] Adding & Subtracting [like] fractions

Equivalent Fractions

Both of these pages explain how to add/subtract (like) fractions.

**Part Two**1]

I'm not sure if this is right or not !

3] TheMathPage.com shows you how to

**multiply**fractions. It also shows you how to multiply mixed fractions. They use an easy to follow strategy aswell.

5] TheMathPage.com shows you how to

**divide**fractions. Like the other link above, it shows how to divide mixed fractions. It also has some good examples using problems.

6] I choose Dhona's post from 8.16 because she has great pictures that explain fractions thoroughly.

I choose Genissa's post from 8.17 because she has really clear-drawn images which're simply made but are understandable.

I choose Tyler's post from 8.41 because he has an interesting and creative way of blogging. His pictures are also clear and easy to read.

I choose Aldrin's post from 8.73 because he is usually one of the first to finish, he also does a great job explaining and his posts are eye-catching.

7] Ms. Gavier has 4 brown cats and 3 white kittens. She has 6 1/4 pounds of multi-cat feed. How much pounds of cat-feed do each of her feline friends get?

### fraction growing post [part one and two]

2. improper fractions and mixed numbers are the same because they show/explain the same thing, but is shown/explained in a different way.. right?

3. http://www.mathleague.com/help/fractions/fractions.htm#lowestterms

this site explains how to create equivalent fractions into lowest terms in a simple way..

4. ...

5. ...

6. http://www.mathleague.com/help/fractions/fractions.htm

this site explains how to add and subtract fractions, and is easy to understand..

fractions growing post [part two]

.... wait

2.

- to multiply fractions you multiply the numerators together, then multiply the denominators together...

3. multiplying fractions - this site shows you how to multiply fractions, like the way we did in the class... it explains how to multiply fractions in a simple way..

4.

- when you divide fractions you reverse the second fraction then you multiply the numerator and then multiply the denominators together.. [ not a good explainer..!]

5. dividing fractions - this site shows you how to divide fractions and make it into simplest terms, and it explains how to divide fractions with mix numbers as well...

### Growing Fractions Post

*Number 1*

*Number 2*

*Number 3*

Go to this site and play the game of finding fractions in their lowest terms, equvilant fractions .

*Number 4*

A) Farmer Dan, had been growing beans and corn. The next day, the beans had grown 3/4 and the corn had grown 2/3. How much did the plants grow altogether?

B) Johnny had 3 and 4/5 of a chocolate. Sonny took 2 3/5 of his chocolate. How much chocolate does Johnny have now?

*Number 5*

I did Alex M's, Ham (Mark's) and Aldrin's growing post questions.

*Number 6*

Adding and Subtracting Fractions: this site has a description of how to subtract denomenators, a caculator thingy and a game.

*Part 2**Number 1*

5/6 9/5

They are different numbers but to compare them first u must get a common denominator in the lowest term or the Lowest Common Denominator (LCD).

So the lowerst denominator that these 2 numbers could become is 30.

5/6 X 5 = 25/30

9/5 X 6 = 54/30 Now you can compare them.

*Number 2*

*Number 3*

Multiplying Fractions: This site lets you multiply fractions. It also lets you multiply mixed numbers and a fractions and mixed numbers multiplied by mixed numbers. Whenyou press multiply it gives you the answer and how it got the answer as well.

*Number 4*

*Number 5*

Dividing Fractions: This site lets you divide fractions. It also lets you divide mixed numbers and a fractions and mixed numbers divided by mixed numbers. When you press divide it gives you the answer and how it got the answer as well.

*Number 6*

I choose Aldrin's post from 8-73 because he does all his work first and makes them so they are very nice and people can't take them.

I picked Tyler's Post from 8-41 because I understood what he was talking about.

For 8-17 I chose Katho's Post post bevause of the pictures.

In 8-16 Annalyn's Post because it made sense.

*Number 7*

If it took me an average of 1 minute to run 1/6 of a cross country lap, how many laps would I have done if I ran for one hour and and thirty minutes?

I answered Ingrid's.
