### nannalyns fraction growing post.

2. **how are improper fractions and mixed numbers the same?**

improper and mixed fractions are the same cuz you can make a mixed fraction into an improper fraction. and they also have the same value. juss like dhona said. to make a mixed fraction into an improper fraction you multiply the denominator by the whole number and whatever is left in the numerator u add to your improper fraction. eg. 2 1/5 soo that means . 5 x 2 = 10 . then we have one more left so thats 11 . so your improper fraction is 5/11 . and in an improper fraction the numerator is always bigger than the denominator.

this is a cool link cuz you can learn how to make the fraction in simplest terms. and you can also practice and yea.

The questions that I made.

great job annalyn (: your growing post is done correctly :D no mistakes found (:

4. a.Dhona bought 1/4 of chocolate and 1/3 of bubble gum. How much food did dhona buy?

the common denominator is 12

so 1/4 = 3/12 and 1/3 = 4/12

3/12 + 4/12 = 7/12<-ANSWER=D

b. Yvanne bought 9 3/4 metres of carpet. Lynel bought 4 1/2 meteres. How much more carpet did Yvanne buy than Lynel?

the common denominator is 8.

9 6/8 - 4 2/8 = 5 4/8<-ANSWER=D

--I think i am right... I hope

--Nice POST!!

4. a.Dhona bought 1/4 of chocolate and 1/3 of bubble gum. How much food did dhona buy?

1/4 + 1/3 = ? Find the LCD

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

3 + 4 = 7, so it's 7/12

Dhona bought 7/12 of food.

niice post=D .. i thought the picture looked good and the questions that you made.
