Today in class we went over our homework, the 4 adding fracion questions and the 3 word problems. Here are the correct answers:

1) She can make the cake whole again.

5/8 + 1/2=9/8 or 1 1/8

5/8 + 1/2 change to 4/8= 9/8 or 1 1/8

2) 1/2 fraction of a package of buns is needed for the hotdogs.

12/8 = 1 4/8 = 1/2

3) She has 1 7/20 L of punch.

3/5+1/2= 1 1/10

1 1/10+1/4=1 7/20

We also added a few mixed numbers.

For homework we got subtraction questions.

3/4 - 3/8=

Subtracting fractions is just like adding fractions, you change the whole but instead of adding you subtract.

Here are the rest of the homework questions.

5/8 -1/3 =

4/5 - 1/2 =

13/15 - 4/5=

For next scribe, I choose Angela.
