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.

  • 4a) 3/4=9/12 and 2/3=8/12 LCD is 12
    9/12 + 8/12=17/12 - That's how much they grew altogether.
    4b) 3 4/5 - 2 3/5=
    3-2=1 and 4-3=1 so that answer is 1 1/5. Johnny has 1 1/5 of chocolate left.

  • 4a] 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 altogehter?

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

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

    3 4/5 - 2 3/5 = 1 1/5

  • 3/4 + 2/3

    9/12 + 8/12=17/12

    1 5/12 is my answer

    okie 3 4/5 - 2 3/5

    1 1/5 subtract whole ,same demominator subtract numerator thats my answer

    3/4 2/3 multiply the denomenators and it would make 12. multiply the numerators the same way the denomenators get to 12.
    3/4 3x3= 9
    4x3= 12
    and do the same thing to the other fraction.
    2/3 2x4= 8
    3x4= 12

    so it is 9/12 8/12= 17/12 or 1 5/12

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

    3 4/5 - 2 3/5 since both have the same denomenator so you could just subtract it
    = 1 1/5

    3/4 = 9/12 and 2/3 =8/12 = 17/12.
    The plants grew 17/12 altogether

  • 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 altogehter?

    2/3 + 3/4
    8/12 + 9/12 = 17/12
    LCD = 12

    the plants grew 17/12 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?

    3 4/5 - 2 3/5
    = 1 1/5

    Johnny has 1 1/5 of chocolate left.
