Textbook 6.2 - 5a, 5d, 9, 12

5a.

Share 3/5 between 2 groups. First thing you do is change the whole number (2) and turn it into an improper fraction (2/1). You try and find the reciprocal which is 1/2 and you multiply it to get 1 whole. Now, what you do to the bottom, you must do to the top. So 3/5 multiply by 1/2 equals 3/10. Now if you divide 3/10 and 1, it would still be 3/10.

5d.

Share 2/3 between 6 groups. First thing you do is change 6 into 6/1 and multiply it by the reciprocal, which is 1/6. The product would then be 6/6 or 1. Now what you do to the bottom, you must do to the top as I said before. So 2/3 multiply by 1/6 equals 2/18 and when you divide 2/18 by 6/6 or 1, I would still have the same answer (2/18).

9. Ingrid runs three laps of a track in 1/4 hour. On average, how much time does she take to run one lap? Express your answer.
a) as a fraction of an hour.

b) in minutes

12. It takes 4/5 of a roll of ribbon to wrap six packages. What fraction of a roll does it take to wrap three packages?

It takes 2/5 of a roll to wrap three packages because it takes 4/5 of roll to wrap six packages. That means it would take half as much rolls to use for three packages because 3 is half of 6.

Fraction Test Correction

1. Good Work! You explained it good, and you also have lots of pictures you should put a video too next time.

3. Nice work Reymel I like how you explained it then added pictures to extend the explanation. But you forgot to add a video

4. Good job cousin reyrey! I like how you have pictures to go with all the questions. I just suggest to put the picture underneath the question other than on top. And next time you should add a link to a game and video. But other than that... Goodjob(:

5. Nice job reymel I like how you have lots of pictures and how you labeled which questions you are doing, But next time maybe you should make your explanation on how you got the answer a bit bigger for the first three questions.

6. Great job Reymel you had good information and great pictures, it was easy to understand. Next time try to embed a video also.

7. Good job Reymel! You explained how to answer the questions very clearly. You also filled in the pieces (picture) with different colors which makes it also help explain your answers.

And you could have made some of the words bigger or at least highlighted them.
