Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

hi mathgogocart mandy here the answer to 1.3/4 + 2/4 =

4 x 4 = 8

3 x 4 = 12

4 x 2 = 8

12 + 6 = 20

so answer is 1.12/20 is that right?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

hi Mandy

There's a problem with the large text at the moment so I'll have to go back to small.

You should be able to increase your page size in internet explorer to compensate.

I've been doing my Mum's garden

so only just got home.


7/12 is correct well done.


But your answer to mathgogocart's question is not.

Let's look at it one line at a time.

You said: 4 x 4 = 8.  No, that is 4 ADD 4.  4 TIMES 4 is 16 

You said 3 x 4 = 12   CORRECT!

You said 4 x 2 = 8  CORRECT 

You said   12 + 6 = 20.  Well 20 is CORRECT but you meant 12 + 8 = 20


Finally you said 12/20.  Wrong way up.  That should be 20/16

I think you need more practice.  Try these

Q1               1/5 + 2/3

Q2               2/5 + 1/2

Q3               3/7 + 1/3

Q4               4/9 + 1/3

Q5               2/3 + 1/6

See you later.

Bob

I still think that is the best idea. You should try to sync with Bob and follow it.
