Well i looked at all of the work and i noticed that the kids did not have an equal amount subs, because 17/22 is an unequal fraction. And most of them divided it into 4 equal pieces and there was 2 subs left so the kids did have equal amounts of subs but there was left overs.
the kids did not get an equal amount of subs.most of the work, they use 4 and get a left over subs.17/22 is a ugly fraction. some of the works i don't get what are they doing.
The size of a whole matters because I think everyone obviously wants to get a bigger piece of a sub so it really matters. The bigger the denominator is the smaller the piece you would get.
The fraction that Mr.H has given us is unfriendly fraction (17/22) because you can't really divide the numerator is a half compare if you uses a friendly fraction like 4/8 you can divide them in a half and figure out how many pieces they would get.
mostly everyone use 4 and get leftover subs but i don't understand that they use 4.17/22 is an ugly fraction coz' ugly fractions are continouos decimal that don't have equivalents.
well, today i learned that if the decimal is under 1 you have to multiply it by 100. i looked at all of the work and i thought that they did the same thing. most of them put 3/4. and i still wonder were they get 4...??? =/
well i noticed that some of the work they did are not the same one thing is that 17/22 is an unfriendly fraction...when you divide the numerator to the denominator of an unfriendly fractions, you will get are nonstop or repeating decimals (e.g. 17/22 = 17 divided by 22 = 0.772...). for me, each person got 0.7727272... or 77.27 % of a sub which is true because subs divided by people but its hard to draw it because its repeating number. Some of the works i don't get what are they doing.
a lot of people said that there were left overs, its probly because the fraction 17/22 is an unfriendly fraction. it is an unfriendly fraction anyway because 17 doesn't go into 22 perfectly. so no matter what you do, there will always be a left over in that fraction.

i don't really get how to do it. mostly everyone put 3/4 , But wouldn't there still be extras ? does that mean its not equal ?
Fractions shows division just like
3/4 = 0.75

I am still a little bit confused. Mostly everyone used the same thing, like 3/4. The part I'm most confused about is why they used the number 4.

i looked at the pictures...mostly all of them said that the answer is 3/4...but how did they got 4??? i'm still confused...

Fraction shows division which is true. EX. 6/8 = 0.75
The size of the whole matters, because if the denominator is big then the pieces are small.
Friendly and unfriendly fractions.
I think 17/22 is an unfriendly number because I'm still confused about the answer. Friendly numbers are like 1/2.
And I dont get it, do they have equal pieces or not? I think there is suppose to be left overs. Btw. good job to those people who's work is show.
