__Question 4__a) Earl had 3/4 of a chocolate cake and 5/3 of a blueberry cheesecake. How much cake did he have altogether?

b) Horris had 3 3/5 chocolate bars. Later he gave 2 1/3to his bestfriend Horhay. How many chocolate bars did Horris have left?

**I answered Katho's , Rebecca's , and Aldrin's questions.**

__Part 2__

__Question 1__

__Question 2__

__Question 3__

**Multiplying website**

**This website has a good explanation on how to multiply fractions and whole numbers and colourful examples. It even has a game to help you practice.**

__Question 4__

__Question 5__

**Dividing website**

**This website explains how to divide fractions by fractions, and when you click next lesson, it shows how to divide fractions by whole numbers. At the bottom of the page are timed games to test your brain with dividing fractions.**

__Question 6__**I think the four people who should be in the "Growing Post Hall of Fame" are Rebecca, Yvanne, Ingrid, and I didn't chose anyone from 41 yet because there isn't much to chose from. I chose these people because they all had good explanations and they all included numerical and pictoral examples.**

__Question 7__**If I had 35 cupcakes and I had to spilt it between 7 people, how many cupcakes would each person receive?**

I answered Rebecca's word problem.

a) Earl had 3/4 of a chocolate cake and 5/3 of a blueberry cheesecake. How much cake did he have altogether?

3/4 = 9/12

5/3 = 20/12

20/12 + 9/12

= 29/12 or 2 5/12

b) Horris had 3 3/5 chocolate bars. Later he gave 2 1/3to his bestfriend Horhay. How many chocolate bars did Horris have left?

3 3/5 = 3 9/15

2 1/3 = 2 5/15

3 9/15 - 2 5/15

=1 4/15

you made me solve your second question. by the way who are you so i can put your name in my growing post!

a) Earl had 3/4 of a chocolate cake and 5/3 of a blueberry cheesecake. How much cake did he have altogether?3/4 turns to 9/12

5/3 turns to 20/12

9/12+20/12

=29/12

b) Horris had 3 3/5 chocolate bars. Later he gave 2 1/3to his bestfriend Horhay. How many chocolate bars did Horris have left?3 3/5 turns to 3 9/15

2 1/3 turns to 2 5/15

3 9/15 [subtract] 2 5/15

=1 4/15

Niice job with your pictures! Person who I don't know

Nice post!!

a) Earl had 3/4 of a chocolate cake and 5/3 of a blueberry cheesecake. How much cake did he have altogether?

Harry says"3/4 and 5/3's common denominator is 12, so 9/12+20/12=29/12"

b) Horris had 3 3/5 chocolate bars. Later he gave 2 1/3to his bestfriend Horhay. How many chocolate bars did Horris have left?

Harry says"3 3/5 and 2 1/3's common denominator is 15, so

3 9/15-2 5/15= 1 4/15"

-Nice again!

Very good job Faye =) lol

A) Earl had 3/4 of a chocolate cake and 5/3 of a blueberry chesscake. How much cake did he have altogether?

* 3/4 + 5/3 =

* 9/12 + 20/12 =

* 29/12 is my answer.

B) Horris had 3 3/5 chocolate bars. Later he gave 2 1/3 to his bestfriend Horhay. How many chocolate bars did Horris have left?

* 3 3/5-2 1/3 =

* 3 9/15-2 5/15 =

* 1 4/5 is my answer.

A)

3/4 = 9/12

5/3 = 20/12

= 29/12 = 2 5/12

B)

3 3/5 = 9/15

1 4/12 = 5/15

= 1 4/15

By Samantha Goncalves, at 4:21 PM

well ley-ley: 3/4 + 5/3 right??

FIND LCD! it is 12

so 9/12 + 20/12 = 29/12

he had 29/12 pieces all together... or 2 5/12 pieces all together

===================================

3 3/5 - 2 1/3 = 1 4/15 HORRIS HAD 1 4/15 chocolate bars left.. BECAUSE HE HAD TO GIVE IT TO HORHAY!! (Horhay?? hah lol.. nice name ashley)

By Yvanne 8-16, at 4:43 PM

a.)

3/4= 9/12

5/3=20/12

Add 9/12 and 20/12

Answer: 29/12 change to mixed number-> 2 2/12

b.)

3 3/5 = 3 9/15

2 1/3 = 2 5/15

Subtract 3 9/15 and 2 5/15

Answer: 1 4/15

haha. very nice post. good job.

a) Earl had 3/4 of a chocolate cake and 5/3 of a blueberry cheesecake. How much cake did he have altogether?

First you have to find the LCD and it's 12. So..

3/4 = 9/12

5/3 = 20/12

20/12 + 9/12

= 29/12

By arielle816, at 10:55 PM

4)a. Earl had 3/4 of a chocolate cake and 5/3 of a blueberry cheesecake. How much cake did he have altogether?

3/4 + 5/3

9/12 + 20/12 = 29/12

LCD = 12

He had 29/12 of cake altogether.

b. Horris had 3 3/5 chocolate bars. Later he gave 2 1/3to his bestfriend Horhay. How many chocolate bars did Horris have left?

3 3/5 - 2 1/3

3 9/15 - 2 5/15 = 1 4/15

LCD = 15

Horris had 1 4/15 chocolate bars left.
