### Liezl's First Growing Post

3. 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

4.Find your picture of your final project "The Bike Race Fundraiser" at flickr

6. Do a google search for fraction games. Find a good site and write a review of the game. Tell everyone what is good about this site. You also need to create a link to the site.

I think this fraction game is interesting because you get to put toppings on a pizza.
7. Go back to your picture of the bike race. Tell us all about how you calculated the Km positions at a twelfth, sixth and a third. did you see any patterns?
I counted every twelfth, sixth and third of the way. The pattern I saw is that 3 is the half of 6 and 6 is the half of 12.
8.What are 2 different ways to find a quarter and 3/4 of a number. Use one of the following 16, 22, or 110.

Two different ways to find 3/4 of 16, 22, 110
1. N/4 x 3 = __
2. 16/2 = 8 8/2 = 4 Then you take 8 and add it to four.
22/2 = 11 11/2 =5.5 11+ 5.5 = 16.5
110/2 =55 55/2 =27.5 55+ 27.5 = 82.5
