### Jullian's Fraction word PROBLEMS

The thing we did today in class was a question sheet about adding, subtracting, multiplying fractions. Here are some of the questions we did....

Question Number#

10. McDonalds sell milkshakes in two sizes. A small milkshake contains 300ml and a large milkshake contains 2/3 more.
(i) How much does a large milkshake contain? 500ml
Because a 2/3 of a small milkshake is 200 then I added it with 300 because it is more than the small milkshake 200ml+300ml=500ml.

(ii)If Mr.Murrin drinks 2/3 of a small milkshake and Miss Hoyne 1/2 of a large milkshake who drinks the most? Miss Hoyne drinks the most because, 2/3 of Mr.Murrins 2/3 of 300 is 200ml and Miss Hoyne's 1/2 of the 500ml milkshake is 250ml.

11. Half a can of paint covers 1/3 of a room. How much paint is needed to cover the whole room? 1 and 1/2 of paint is needed to paint the whole room.....
