I divided 60 by 2 because 2 is the denominator of the fraction and 60 is the number of mins in a clock. It equals 30 so it is 30 mins. Then I divided 60 by 6 and it equals 10, so it is 10 mins. Then I added both of them together and got 40 mins. So 1/2 + 1/6 = 40 mins.

For the second one, I did the same thing. 60 divided by 4 = 15 mins. Then the next one is 60 divided by 12 = 5 mins. So I then added both of them together and got 20 mins. So 1/4 + 7/12 = 20 mins.

So that means that 1/2 + 1/6 or 30 + 10 = 40mins is bigger.

*(I GOT AN ERROR WHEN UPLOADING MY BIKE RACE PICTURE!! SO I CAN'T PUT IT ON!!)*Well, what me and jonah did was divide 60 by the denominator's so for the water station i divided 10 by 60 & got 6 so the 6 means that if you count the kilometers or boxes 6 times and you made it to the finish line, you counted the boxes or kilometers by 6, 10 times, To make it to the finish line.

*The same thing goes for the rest of the stations.*Like the food wagon, I divided 60 by 4 and got 15. So that means when you count the boxes all the way to the finish line by 4, you would be counting by 4 15 times.

FRACTION GAME http://www.bbc.co.uk/skillswise/numbers/fractiondecimalpercentage/fractions/comparingfractions/flash2.shtml

You choose which game you want to play:

(1)Dolphin racing - Test your knowledge by finding the largest fraction to win the game.

Or

(2)Ordering game - Test your knowledge of fractions by putting them in order from largest to smallest.

I played both and it was really fun. It actually teaches you how to find or put fractions in order.

8. What are 2 different ways to find a quarter and 3/4 of a number. Use one of the following 16, 22, or 110.

What i did to get 3/4 of a number is by cutting 16 in half and got an 8 or I did the karate chops. Then I cut 8 in half and got a 4. Adding both numbers, the 4 & 8, and got 12. So 12 is 3/4 of 16.

9) Write a fraction question and answer it. It has to be a question like one you have had on a test. You may answer it in pictorial or word form.

The question that i did was 4/5 + 2/5 or 9/12 + 5/6 (which is larger?)

For 4/5 i divided the denominator and got 12. So 12 is only 1/5. Since I need 4/5, I added until I got 12 4's and got 48. So 4/5 is 48 mins on a clock. Since the second fraction has the same denominator and the numerator 2, that means that I need to add 12 2 times. So the answer is 24. So 2/5 is 24 mins. I added both of them and got 72 mins.

When i did 9/12, the denominator is 12. And there is 12 numbers on a clock. So all i needed to know is what is 9 on a clock. The answer is 45. So 9/12 is 45 mins. Then i did 5/6. Since 5/6 has the denominator 6, i just needed to add a zero at the end. The denominator 6 is the same as 60 mins on a clock except without the zero. With the zero it looks like 50/60. So it is 50 mins. Then i added both 45 + 50 and got 95 mins. So 9/12 + 5/6 is bigger.
