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

This Post has been inducted into the Growing Post Hall of Fame

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.

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

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?

I answered Helen's word problem from 8-16.

**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.

okie well 3/4 + 3/4

9/12 + 16/12=25/12

my answer is 25/12 =D

and 9 3/9 - 5 6/9

9 3/9- 5 6/9

84/9-51/9=33/9

and 3 6/9 done

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?

3/4 + 4/3

3x3= 9

3x4= 12

4x4= 16

3x4= 12

9/12 + 16/12 = 25/16 or 1 9/16

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?

9 3/9 - 5 2/3

9 3/9 - 5 6/9

8 9/9 + 3/9 = 8 12/9

8 12/9 - 5 6/9 = 3 6/9

okey-dokes.

a)3/4= 9/12

4/3= 16/12

16+9=25/12 i.e. 2 1/12

b)5 2/3= 5 6/9

9 3/9= 8 12/9

8-5=3 12/9-6/9= 6/9 i.e. 2/3

therefore...

3+ 2/3= 3 2/3 HOORay

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?

3/4 + 4/3 = ? LCD = 12

9/12 + 16/12 = ?

9 + 16 = 25, So it becomes 25/12

They would have 25/12 marbles altogether.

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 does each of her feline friends get?

6 1/4 / 7=

25/4 / 7/1=

25/1x1/7=25/7

3 4/7

each of her cats would get 3 4/7 punds..... i think

By Rebecca G 8-17, at 9:56 AM

She has a total of 7 cats, so if she were to split the food evenly, you would do this:

6 and 1/4 ÷ 7/1 = 25/4 ÷ 7/1

which equals

25/4 x 1/7 = 25/28

Each cat would get 25/28 pounds of cat food.

Tis is Hall of Fame Worthy. You are not quite getting question 1 in part 2. YOur square is 5 by 5 and it is 5/6 of a total. How can you use that same square (picture) to show 9/5.

Everything else is great.

Thank You

6 1/4 divided by 7/1

25/4 divided by 7/1

25/4 times 1/7

25/28

By jL, at 6:31 PM

6 1/4 % by 7/1

25/4 % by 7/1

25/4 x 1/7

they get 25/28
