Kadille Dave's Scribe Post

This scribe is all about paints used in a part of a room.

here is the problem:

if you can paint 2/5 of paint can, in a quarter of a room, how many paint can/s will be used when you will paint a whole room?

to answer this problem, one strategy can be used in solving this problem. it is ratio table. the picture shows how this problem will be solved. but the answer is not yet shown, it only showed how to get the whole room (1/4 x 4). to make 1/4 into a whole number which is one, the numerator and the denominator must be the same so since it was 1/4, we multiply it into 4 to get 4/4 or 1....one thing in ratio table is that when you do it in one side, do it on the other side. so we multiply the number 4 too, to answer the question.






this is to show how you multiply the fraction to 4... and 2 2/3 is the answer to this problem that can paint the whole room












this shows the answer..,.its done...the answer is
2 2/3
