Faith's Fraction Scribepost

Textbook Pg. 228  Chapter 6.5  #'s 11, 12 & 13

Here's the link for the questions:

 First, you make the whole number a fraction. Then find what you have and what you need and put it on a fraction line. Find the reciprocal of the denominator. What you did to the bottom must be done at the top. Multiply them to find the answer. Simplify the answer if you need to. This goes for all of the questions.

11. In a comedy review, each performer has a 1/4-h slot . How many performers are there in a 2-h show?

12. It take 2 1/2 scoops of flour to make one cake. How many cakes do 15 scoops of flour make?

If the question has a mixed number in it, you should make it into an improper fraction. You just multiply the denominator with the whole number, then add the numerator. This makes it easier to get the answer and to do.

13. Three quarters of a can of apple juice fills six glasses. How many glasses will a whole can of apple juice fill?

Here's a video to help you understand better:

Here is a game you can play about dividing fractions. Enjoy!
