### Leta's Scribe

Today in class we....

Learned to do easier ways for dividing fractions...
Ex. 2/3 / 1 1/2 =?

Mr harbeck taught us....
That when its like that question ^ then we have to make it inproper.
(ex. 2/3 / 1 1/2 = 2/3 / 3/2) so when its like that we can make it inproper and it will be easier to do. so when you make it inproper if you find a pattern like this:

<--- See how they have both the same numbers!!! <--- Then you could change the denominator and put it in the oter fractions denominator. So then you would have 2/2 and 3/3. <--- Or you can just times the numerator and then since the denominator has the same numbers it will equal the same sum as the numerator. so if you times them you get 6/6 which equals 1.

Mr. Harbeck Learned And Taught Us.....

Mr. Harbeck learned and taught us that when you do a question like this:
2/3 /11/2 = 2/3 / 3/2
= 6/6=1 And when you do those kinds of questions you have to line up the first equal signs.. Mr harbeck learned this from Mr. Ralph

For homework we had....

Had to finish that piece of paper that Mr. Harbeck gave to us in class and give examples for rows 4 and 5. In row 3 we had to finish the questions. In colum 5 we had to show recipicals for the fractions he gave us. And for row 2 we had to explain how we did the questions in row 3.
