Dhonell's First Growing Post

to get 1/2 of 60 you go 60 / 2 = 30 minutes.
to get 1/6 of 60 you go 60 / 6 = 10 minutes.
40 minutes or 40/60 or 4/6 all together
to get 1/4 of 60 you go 60 / 4 = 15 minutes.
to get 7/12 of 60 you go 60 / 12 = 5 times 7 because its 7/12 so 5 times 7 equals 35 mintues.
50 minutes or 50 / 60 or 5/6

1. Our bike race has trees and a bench i like that.
2.Our bike race also shows how we did the chop suey way to get our answers for the kilometer markers
__________________________________________
7.(it was here) For the bike race , to find the kilometer markers , we did 60/3=20 then we divided that by 2 because 1/6 is half of 1/3. then we divided it by 2 again because 1/12 is half of 1/6. so 60 / 3 = 20, 60 / 6 = 10, 60 / 12 = 5.

http://www.gamequarium.com/fractions.html is a site where they teach you some fractions and some fraction games. in this site, you can chose from an assortment of games, some games that other people have chosen and some that people havn't. you can also chose between what do you want to learn about fraction. i give this site 4/5. Its a pretty good site overall.

To get 2 ways 1/2 of 110 and 3/4 of 110 is to do the chop thing.
To get 1/4 and 3/4 of 110.
110 / 2 = 55 55 / 2 = 27.5 thats 1/4
then you go 55+27.5=82.5 thats 3/4
2nd way
110/4 = 1/4
110/4*3 = 3/4
__________________________________________
For the 'make your own fraction question' i chose the question why is 1/4 + 1/5 does not equal 2/9. I chose this one because it was the first question of the year and it was a surprise.
1/4+1/5 does not equal 2/9 .

I didn't want to use a calculator and i sort of don't know how to do long divison im serious i don't so yeah.
