    How many 3/4 kilograms can fit inside 20 kilograms? (Hint: Divide.)

    There are infinitely-many choices. One quick way of finding such a fraction is to convert the two given fractions to a common denominator, and then find some other fraction of the same denominator that is between the two numerators.

    Convert them all to the same denominator, and subract each from 1. Whichever one has the smallest answer was the biggest (and thus closest to 1).

    This one works just like the first one, above.

    Hello,

    1) How many 3/4 kilograms can fit inside 20 kilograms?

    \frac{20}{\frac{3}{4}}=20*\frac{4}{3}=....

    2)name a fraction that is between 1/2 and 1/3....?

    1/2 and 1/3 are equivalent to 30/60 and 20/60 u can choose any number between 21/60 and 29/60 to be your answer

    3)which of the following fractions is closest to one?
    a)2/3 b)3/4 c)4/5 d)5/6

    2/3=0,(6)
    3/4=0,75
    4/5=0,8
    5/6=0,8(3)

    answer d)

    4) three pizzas were evenly shared among some friends. if each of them go 3/5 of the pizza. how many were there altogether?

    \frac{3}{\frac{3}{5}}=3*\frac{5}{3}=5

    Have a nice day,

    Take a close look at the pictures I've attached.

    • The shaded areas in the top one show that the fraction \frac{6}{12} is the same fraction as \frac{1}{2}.


    • The middle one shows that \frac{4}{12} is the same as \frac{1}{3}.


    • The bottom one has 5 sections shaded out of 12. And the size of the shaded area in this one is in between the other two. So this fraction is in between \frac{1}{2} and \frac{1}{3}.


    What fraction is shaded in the bottom diagram?
