### Karen's First Growing Post

Explain :
1/2 + 1/6 = ?
• 1/2 of a clock is 30 ( 60÷2=30x1=30)
• 1/6 of a clock is 10 ( 60÷6=10x1=10)
• 30+10 = 40 minutes
1/4 + 7/12=?
• 1/4 of a clock is 15 (60÷4=15x1=15)
• 7/12 of a clock is 35(60÷12=5x7=35)
• 15+35=50 minutes
Hanah and Karen's Bike race
In our bike race, we used the clock method to find the answer for each stations.
For example:
The resting point is every eight of the way
60 minutes and we used every minute of the clock to find how many times it would be resting point in 60 km.

6. Here is the fraction game that I found http://www.helpingwithmath.com/resources/games/fraction_game3/matching.html
In this game, you would have to match the equivalent fraction of the cards that was given in the game once you matched the cards to the equivalent fraction
7. I think the pattern for the twelve, six and third was that they counted by three's.
8. To find the 3/4 of 16 I did ..
• one way is 16x3 equals 48 ÷ 4 = 12
• the other way is to divide it by two so it would be like 16÷ 2 = 8 then 8÷ 2=4 after doing that you have to multiply 4 to 3 then it would be equals to 12 .
9. Which is bigger ?

OR

To find the answer I used the clock method, first I have to find the answer for the 4/6 + 1/3. For 4/6 you have to divide 60 ÷ 6 = 10 x 4 equals 40 then 1/3 you do the same thing except different numbers 60 ÷ 3= 20x2=40 so it would be 40 + 40 = 80 or 1 hour and 20/60 minutes. Then for 1/6 + 3/5 = ?, 1/6 - 60 ÷ 6 then x 1 = 10 while for 3/5 - 60 ÷ 5 equals 12 then x 3 = 36. Now the answer for 10 (1/6) + 36(3/5) = 46 minutes
4/6 + 1/3 > 1/6 + 3/5

Good Job!! ((:
On question 7, you didnt tell how you calculated it, but overall you did good. (:
