### Fractions

Saturday, April 11, 2009
In skills class, Mr. Harbeck asked us to create a post about Fraction. You guys might remember these fractions because they were for homework. So for our homework we had to explain if they were =<> (equal,greater than and less than) the fraction pairs we are dealing with are 2/3 and 4/6. And we also had 1/8 and 1/4. So lets start with 2/3 and 4/6 is it greater than, less than equal to? Well if you divide 2 by 3 you get: o.6 repeating then 4 by 6 you get:0.6 repeating so as you can see here, they are both the same. But lets look at it from another standpoint, lets see what it looks like in pictures :

4/6

3/6

wow! they are still them same! But which one is more precise?
I would say 4/6 is more precise.

Now we'll look at 1/8 and 1/4
This time we will do the pictures first,

1/4

1/8

So as we can see, 1/4 is bigger than 1/8.

Okay now if we divide it 1 by 4 =0.25
then 1 by 8=0.125

so as we can see here 1/8 is bigger, but which is more precise?
1/4 is more precise!

Hope I've helped someone?!

Happy Fractions! ☺
