I ate 3/4 of ham and ate 2/3 of hotdogs from the fridge. How much did I eat?

5 2/3 of ham was stolen from the fridge, I stole 2 1/2. How much more do I need to steal back?


5.Go to three people's growing posts and answer their fraction problems by leaving comments, One of the three people cannot be from your homeroom.

  • 1) I ate 3/4 of ham and ate 2/3 of hotdogs from the fridge. How much did I eat?

    3/4 + 2/3
    = 9/12 + 8/12
    = 17/12
    = 1 5/12

    2) 5 2/3 of ham was stolen from the fridge, I stole 2 1/2. How much more do I need to steal back?
    5 2/3 - 2 1/2
    = 5 4/6 - 2 3/6
    = 3 1/6
