Hello,

I have a question which I tried to solve but not sure of my answer. Here's the question:

Names for the same:

Kathy and Gale are playing a game with pattern blocks. Kathy gives fraction rules and Gale uses the clues to determine what one whole is.

Here are Kathy's clues:

12 green blocks are 12/18ths. Gale thinks 3 yellow blocks are one whole. Is Gale correct? Show your work.

My answer:

Fraction of green blocks : 12/18 which means there are 12 green blocks out of 18 blocks.

Total number of blocks: 18

Number of non-green blocks : 18-12=6

So, the fraction of non-green blocks: 6/18. Simplify 6/18=1/3

So 3 blocks does makes one whole.

But 3yellowblocks does not.

Thank you,
