We also did two questions about portions/fractions/problem solving.

The first question was about a girl saving money.

Every time she would make a dollar she would save 23 cents of it.

The question asked how much would she save if she made $75 in a week.

So you would have to put your anwser in a line like...... Saved/Earned=0.28/1.00= ?/$75

You could cross mulitply- 75x.28=21/1.00=21

You could divide and mulitply- 1.00/75.00=75

1x75=75

.28x75=21

So it would be Saved=0.28=$21.00

Earned=1.00=$75.00

The second question was about running and time.

When you run 4 laps it would take 18 minutes.

The question was how many laps could you do in 1 and a half hours.

So you would have to put anwser in a line like........Laps/Time=4/18=?/1.5

You first need to find out the 1.5 time which would be 90 minutes.

You could cross multiply-90x4=360

360/18=20

You could divide and multiply- 90/18=5

5x4=20

So it would be laps=4=20

time=18=90(1.5 hours)

That is what we did and what I remembered.
