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
So it would be Saved=0.28=$21.00
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
You could divide and multiply- 90/18=5
So it would be laps=4=20
That is what we did and what I remembered.
