### Arielle's Growing Post

Okay! Lets see, uhh... well, i guess i should start on my first question. And... oh no.. i hope i do this right.

Question number one!

(Purple. your favourite color darie)

Now! For number two.

How are improper fractions and mixed numbers the same?

Uhh, well. For one thing, they are both fractions?

An improper fraction is when the numerator is bigger than the denominator. A mixed number is a whole number and a fraction. They are the same because they both larger than the denominator. (i think thats right)

Anyway. Number three now! (YAY! almost done...)

The link up there ^ helps you understand how to find equivalent fractions. It shows many examples and it shows what else you can do to fractions such as dividing etc.

Number four!

Problem one.

One day you were sitting on a bench in a park eating 3/4 of your pizza. Then along came a random stranger and they gave you 2/3 of their pizza. (yay?) How many slices of pizza do you have all together?

Problem two.

It was warm one day so you decided to sell lemonade outside your house. You had 4 1/6 of lemonade to sell. Then along came a person and they bought 2 1/3 of your lemonade. (wonder how that happened) How much lemonade do you have left?

Hahaha, I know. weird problems. Oh well.

Problem five.

Uhh..what do i do? OH! haha i did helen's, yvannes and ashleys.

Problem six.

The site above explains how too add fractions. It has many examples how to do so, and it also has other links that can help you in other math subjects.

YES! I AM DONE! YAY! i am so proud of myself. Oh wait...i still have to do number 5. *sigh*

hmm....... 3/4 + 2/3 kay.... first you have to change the denominators so that their the same (common denominators). it would be 12.

Then to find the numerators you have to do what you did to the bottom, meaning you do the same thing (add, multiply, subtract, divide, or whatever) to the numerator.

3/4 = 9/12 because 3x3=9 & 4x3=12

2/3 = 8/12 because 2x4=8 & 3x4=12

now... to add...

9/12 + 8/12= 17/12 or 1 and 5/12

4 and 1/6 - 2 and 1/3... first you change the denominators (if you have to) in this question we have to because their different. so... you find the first number that both of them can be divided by. 6.

1/6 stays the same, because it already has a denominator of 6

1/3 = 2/6 because 1x2=2 & 3x2=6

since you cant take away 2/6 from 1/6, you borrow. (3 and 6/6 + 1/6)-2 and 2/6

would become

3 and 7/6 - 2 and 2/6= 1 and 5/6

One day you were sitting on a bench in a park eating 3/4 of your pizza. Then along came a random stranger and they gave you 2/3 of their pizza. (yay?) How many slices of pizza do you have all together?

You would want to add 3/4 and 2/3, since its different denominators, you would need a common denominator.12 would be a common denominator

3x3=9, 4x3=12

9/12

2x4=8, 3x4=12

8/12

9/12 + 8/12 = 17/12 since you have to answer it as mixed number the answer is, 1 and 5/12.

p.s. arielle who was the random stranger 0.o ?

OK! uhh...

3/4 + 2/3

first you have to make them into equal denominators...

3/4 + 2/3 { 9/12 + 8/12= 17/12}

IMPROPER FRACTION! *o* ( haha stole yer face)

17/12 is then turned unto ... 1 5/12 ......

is that right....? haha

OK! uhh...

4 1/6 and 2 1/3 ...

ok you subtract 2 1/3 from 4 1/6 because the greedy person took a lot.. so it's:

4 1/6 - 2 1/3 the dentominators aren't the same so we have to make it into the same denominators..

ok first you subtract the whole umber then the fractions

{ 4 1/6 - 2 2/6 = }

ok now we have to do that other thingy mabober...

2 2/6 } 1 6/6 + 2 2/6 =

1 8/6

sooo...

4 8/6 - 1 2/6 = 3 6/6 which is practically like....4...? is that riight...? "-_- i thiink i did it wrong...oh well HAHA
