1/4 = 15 min. 1/2 = 30 min.
7/12 = 35 min. 1/6 = 10 min.
= 50 min. = 40 min.
1/4 + 7/12 is bigger than 1/2 +1/6 because 50 minutes is more than forty minutes.

7. The way i added up the kilometeres was by adding the kilometers and distance together than dividing it. The pattern i seen was every stop there would be more than one station.

8. On way you can find 3\4 in 16 is 4 goes into it four times you can add it, multiply, and divide a fraction. the way i can find how a quarter goes into a number is take a numkbe eg. 4 - 16 4 goes into 16 4 times. 1\4 is a quarter so 4-16 would equal 4\4. another example is 4-22 4 goes into 22 it goes into 5 time and you have a left over of two so it would be 2\4 ...... i think
