Marielou's May Growing Post

finally remembered to do my growing post heheh lol.. anyways..... here it is

Number 1
lowest terms means, still putting it in a fration, but not changing the value. The fration will be in lowest terms when the numerator (top number)and denominator (bottom number) dont have any common factors (a number you can divied both of them by)
for example:
2/4 in lowest terms would be 1/2, because you can divide 2 (numerator) and 4 (denominator) by 2. So..... 2 divided by 2 equals 1 & 4 divided by 2 equals 2. The numerator would now be 1 and the denominator would become 2. The new fration (different numbers, same value) would be 1/2. Since there isnt any number you can divied 1 and 2 by, besides 1, its now in lowest terms

Number 2

a mixed number is just another way to write a big fration, with whole part(s) to change a mixed number you have to see how many times does the denominator number go into the numerator. then you see how many you have left and put that number over the denominator. if needed, reduce to lowest terms. now you have an improper fration into a mixed number, without changing its value.
3/2 is the same as 1 and 1/2, you just changed it into a mixed fration. so... you look at the denominator of the improper fraction, in this case it would be a 2. 2 goes into 3 one time. now you have 1 whole piece. Now check how much you have left over (3-2=1) 1 is left over. then put it over the denominator. your mixed fration is now 1 and 1/2. the 1/2 is already in lowest terms so... you dont have to out it in lowest terms.

Number 3

Reducing to Lowest Terms <--- (click mee!)here you learn how to change a number into lowest terms. When you understand it, you can try some questions they give you Number 4

One day Marielou and Racquel decided to have a picnic. Marielou brought 3/4 of a pizza, and Racquel brought 1/3 of a pizza. How puch pizza did they have all together?


Marielou had 2 and 3/4 of pie (two wholes and 3 out of 4 pieces). She gave 1 and 1/4 of those pieces to Racquel (one whole and 1 out of 4 pieces). How much pieces of pie did Marielou have left?

Number 5
i did arielle's, ralph's an teara's questions
Number 6

adding fraction(with like/same denominators) <--- click mee! here they explain to you how to add fractions with the same denominator. Then at the bottom, you try a problem they give you =) adding AND subtracting fractions(with UNlike denominators) <-- click mee! here they explain how to add AND subtract frations with unlike denomtinators. After you can solve a couple questions the give you

yay! im done... now to go watch stuff =P

ha ha marilou
a) 3/4 + 1/3
9/12 + 4/12 = 13/12 + 1 1/2

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