    im not good with that stuff.
    the questions are:

    1. 1/4+2/3=

    2. 4/5+2/10=

    3. 9/10-1/2=

    4. 1/4-3/16=



    i got:

    1. 11/12
    2.10/10=1
    3.4/10=1/5
    4.1/16=1/2

    Quote:1. Right
    2. Right
    3. Right - same as 4 (EDIT - because Dunkopf is right (as usual) [​IMG]
    4. Right, but then you reduced it? Had it right at first [​IMG]

    Looks great to me except for the last one, which should stay 1/16. The only way it would be 1/2 is if your original value was 8/16 not 1/16. Otherwise...great job!! [​IMG]

    Fractions are the bane of my life. I have to admit that anything hard than what you are doing, and I just give up. I can do decimals till the cows come home, but fractions just confuse me. [​IMG]

    #3 should be 2/5 which is 4/10ths reduced.

    Quote:Yup. 1/16 = 0.0625 and 1/2= 0.5

    1/16 is not equal to 1/2

    1/4-3/16 = .25 - 0.1875 = 0.0625 = 1/16 [​IMG]

    #3 should be 2/5 which is 4/10ths reduced.

    #2 should be 1

    #4 should be 1/16th as someone else said.

    Looks like you got the basic concept down. Just double check it and pay attention to details.[​IMG]

    And Dunkopf is right...we didn't reduce 4/10...this should be 2/5. [​IMG]
