### Lester's First Growing Post

1/2 + 1/6 or 1/4 + 7/12
1/2 = 0.5 1/6 = 0.166 0.5 + 0.166~ = 0.66
1/4 = 0.25 7/12 = 0.5833 0.25 + 0.5833 = 0.833
now just compare the decimals 0.66 or 0.833
0.833 is larger
1/4 + 7/12 > 1/2 + 1/6.
As a picture looks like

Lester's Bike race

We labeled parts on the bikerace. We divided the numbers to know where to label them.

We also made a bikerace into a square and went around, to meet the beggining with the end.

The patterns for twelfth, sixth and a third they always went higher and doubled. Since 1/12 times 2=1/6 times 2= 1/3.

This game site is good because it teaches you more stuff about fractions and distances.
I played this game for like 10 min, its kinda fun, then it just gets boring. It taught me some stuff about fractions and it was fun.

To get 3/4 of 16 is to go 16 divided 4 then you multiply it by 3. So 16 divided by 4= 4 then you times it by 3 which will equal 12.

1/2 + 7/12= 35 minutes
Use a clock to answer it
60 divided by 2 =30 minutes
60 divided by 12 = 5 minutes then you have to times it by 7= 35
Add 30 + 35= 65
