### Angelo's First Growing Post

1/4 + 7/12 is bigger!

(1/2 = 30 minutes, 1/6 = 10 minutes) 1/2 and 1/6 equals 40 minutes. The fraction would be 40/60, if you reduce it, it would be 2/3. 2/3 equals 66 percent.

(1/4 = 15 minutes, 7/12 = 35 minutes)1/4 and 7/12 equals 50 minutes. The fraction would be 50/60, if you reduce it, it would be 5/6.5/6 equals 83 percent.

I couldn't find my bike race so I used this one .
I calculated the Km positions of twelfth, sixth, and third by using a clock. I thought " how much does 12, 6, and 3 go into 60." 12 goes into 60, 5 times. 6 goes into 60, 10 times. 3 goes into 60, 20 times. 5, 10 and 20 are equivalent to eachother. So in the bikerace map some of the KM positions were in the same box.

To get a quarter of 16 you have to cut it in half and in half again.16-8-4. Four will be the answer. Another way is 16 divided by four.
To get 3/4 of 16, 8 + 4. 8 is 1/2 of 16, and 4 is 1/4 of 16. The answer is 12.
Another way is, since a quarter of 16 is 4 and you want to get 3/4. Just multiply 4 by 3.

Make A Match- The theme is like a wizard game. There is bottles on shelves. Some of the bottles have number fractions, some have picture fractions.You have to click on one bottle, it will go down on a table, then you have to click the matching picture. If it's right the bottles will disappear.This site is very good. It deals with number fractions and picture fractions. The beginning will be pretty easy. As you move along to the next levels, there will be more bottles and harder fractions. The more challenging, the more you learn.
