Which is larger?
1/2 + 1/6 or 1/4 + 7/12 ?

1/2= 30 minutes (60 ÷ 2 = 30)
1/6= 10 minutes (60 ÷ 6 = 10)
30 + 10= 40 minutes

1/4= 15 minutes (60 ÷ 4 = 15)
7/12= 35 minutes (60 ÷ 12 = 5 x 7 = 35)
15 +3 5= 50 minutes

1/4 + 7/12 > 1/2 + 1/4

Ashlee's and my bike race:

What we did was when it said to go a sixth of the way we divided 6 by 60.
We did not see any patterns though..

I chose this website:

The games are fun, they make you understand fractions more easily and understanding fractions.

One way to get a quarter of 16, 1/4 x 16. Another way to get 3/4 of 16, cut i6 in half which is 8, then cut 8 in half which is 4. A quarter of 16 is 4. So, 8+4 is 12. 12 is 3/4 of 16.

Which is larger?
1/2 + 1/4 or 1/6 + 1/3 ?

1/2= 30 minutes (60 ÷ 2 = 30)
1/4= 15 minutes (60 ÷ 4 = 15)
30 + 15= 45 minutes

1/6= 10 minutes (60 ÷ 6 = 10)
1/3= 20 minuites (60 ÷ 3= 20)
10 + 20= 30 minutes

1/6 + 1/3 > 1/2 + 1/4
