Angelo's scribe

Today, Mr Harbeck was away (AWWWWWWWWWWW) so we just did fraction word problems.
I'll show you how I did three of them:



Explanation1: I needed to find out 3/8 of 24, so i first divided 8 to 24. The answer was 3, and that meant 3 is 1/8 of 24. So, to get 3/8 i had to times 1/8 three times. That's why i did 3 times 3.



Explanation2: I needed to find out 3/5 of 125, so i first divided 5 into 125. The answer was 25, and that meant 25 is 1/5 of 125. So, to get 3/5 i had to times 1/5 three times. That's why i did 25 times 3.



Explanation3: I needed to find 7/8 of 160, so i first divided 8 into 160. The answer was 20, and that meant 20 is 1/8 of 160. So, to get 7/8 i had to times 1/8 seven times. That's why i did 20 times 7.

This is how I did my questions. Hope you guys agree!
