Question 1.
Frank and Dwayne weed their gardens that are the same size. Frank’s garden is divided into 6 equal sections. Dwayne’s garden is divided into 4 equal sections. Each boy has weeded 2 sections of his garden.
Write a fraction to describe what part of his garden each boy has weeded. Then tell who weeded a larger area. Explain
_________

Answer: Dwayne’s part 2/4 > Frank’s part 2/6.

Explanation:
Frank and Dwayne has the same size of gardens
Frank’s garden is divided into 6 equal sections
Dwayne’s garden is divided into 4 equal sections
Since each has weeded 2 sections of their gardens, Frank’s part would be = 2/6,
Dwayne’s part would be = 2/4.
Therefore Dwayne’s part 2/4 > Frank’s part 2/6,
Since the garden with a greater number of sections will have a smaller area per section.

Question 2.
Eli, Beth, and Cory are reading the same book for class. Eli read $$\frac{3}{4}$$ of his book. Beth read $$\frac{3}{8}$$ of her book and Cory read $$\frac{3}{6}$$ of his book. For 2a–2d, choose Yes or No to indicate whether the comparisons are correct.
a. $$\frac{3}{4}$$ > $$\frac{3}{8}$$
i. yes
ii. no

Explanation: 3/4 > 3/8. Since both are reading the same book and book with a greater number of sections will have a lesser value.

Question 2.
b. $$\frac{3}{6}$$ < $$\frac{3}{8}$$
i. yes
ii. no

Explanation: It’s not true, Since both are reading the same book, and books with a greater number of sections will have a lesser value. Therefore 3/6 > 3/8).

Question 2.
c. $$\frac{3}{8}$$ = $$\frac{3}{6}$$
i. yes
ii. no

Explanation: 3/8 = 3/6. Both are not equal, since the same book has been divided into different no of parts. Therefore both are not equal.

Question 2.
d. $$\frac{3}{6}$$ < $$\frac{3}{4}$$
i. yes
ii. no

Explanation: 3/6 < 3/4. Since both are reading the same book and book with a greater number of sections will have a lesser value.

Question 4.
MacKenzie and Cassie used fabric to make costumes for a play. MacKenzie used $$\frac{3}{4}$$ yard of fabric and Cassie used $$\frac{5}{6}$$ yard. Who used more fabric? Explain the strategy you used to solve the problem.
_________

MacKenzie divided fabric into 4 equal parts and used 3/4 of it. So, 1/4 of it is left. Cassie divided the same yard of fabric into 6 equal parts and used 5/6 of it. Here 1/6 part of it is left, by comparing leftover pieces we can conclude 1/4 > 1/6. Since the larger piece was left with MacKenzie, Cassie has used more fabric.

Question 5.
The soccer team practices passing for $$\frac{3}{4}$$ hour and shooting for $$\frac{4}{5}$$ hour. On which drill does the team spend less time? Explain how you can use the model to find the answer. Answer: From the model, we can understand that team has spent less time on Passing. Since the model for 3/4 is shorter than the model for 4/5.

Question 7.
Mr. Worth opened new jars of 4 different colors of paint for an art project. All of the jars were the same size. Part A Draw lines to show how Mr. Worth could divide one jar of paint into halves, one into thirds, one into fourths, and one into sixths.
Part B Students in his class used an equivalent amount of two paint colors. Use the models to show the amount of paints used. Write two pairs of equivalent fractions to represent the models.

Answer: The below figure represents halves, one-third, one into fourth, one into sixths.

Explanation: Representing Halves           one-third                      one into fourth           one into sixths
Therefore from the above figure, two pairs of equivalent fractions representing the models are 1/2 = 2/4, 1/3 = 2/6.

Question 8.
Dalton rode his skateboard for $$\frac{3}{4}$$ mile. Amelia rode her skateboard for an equal distance. What is an equivalent fraction that describes how far Amelia rode? Use the models to show your work. $$\frac{3}{4}$$ = $$\frac{□}{□}$$

Answer: $$\frac{3}{4}$$ = $$\frac{6}{8}$$.

Explanation: Below two pictures give Dalton and Amelia distance covered while riding a skateboard. Though they both rode the same distance to represent them in similar different fractions. We can divide Dalton’s covered as in the 1st circle and Amelia’s in 2nd Circle. From the pictures, equivalent fractions will be 3/4 for Dalton and 6/8 for Amelia. Question 9.

Question 12.
Will, Ann, and Jim are working on their science fair projects. Will has finished $$\frac{1}{4}$$ of his project. Ann has finished $$\frac{3}{4}$$ of her project, and Jim has finished $$\frac{2}{3}$$ of his project.
Part A
Who has finished less of their project, Will or Ann?
Explain how you know.
__________

Answer: Will has finished less compared to Ann.

Explanation: Given that will has finished 1/4 of his project wherein Ann has finished 3/4 of her project. Since 1/4 and 3/4 have the same denominator, so we can compare the numerator directly. Since 1 is less than 3, we can say 1/4 is less than 3/4. Thus Will has finished less part of his project compared to Ann.

Question 12.
Part B
Who has finished less of their project, Ann or Jim?
Explain how you know.
__________

Answer: 2/3 is less than 3/4. Therefore, Jim has finished less part of his project compared to Ann.

Explanation: Given that Jim has finished 2/3 of his project were in Ann has finished 3/4 of her project. Since denominators are not the same to compare first we shall make the same. Therefore multiply Jim’s work (2/3) with (4/4) which gives = 8/12 and Ann’s work (3/4) with (3/3) which gives = 9/12. Now by comparing numerators 8/12 is less than 9/12, which means Jim has finished less part of his project compared to Ann.

Question 13.
Sarah needs $$\frac{4}{6}$$ yard of ribbon to wrap a gift. She has 6 pieces of ribbon with the following lengths. She can cut the piece if it is too long. Mark all of the pieces of ribbon that Sarah could use.
Options:
a. $$\frac{1}{2}$$ yard
b. $$\frac{6}{6}$$ yard
c. $$\frac{3}{8}$$ yard
d. $$\frac{4}{4}$$ yard
e. $$\frac{1}{3}$$ yard
f. $$\frac{5}{6}$$ yard

Answer: Sarah could use 6/6 yard, 4/4 yard and 5/6 yard of ribbons to wrap gift.

Explanation:
Given that Sarah needs a 4/6 yard of ribbon to wrap a gift.
Lengths of available ribbons are 1/2, 6/6, 3/8, 4/4,1/3, and 5/6.
Comparing all the lengths with 4/6 – 6/6 and 5/6 are having the same denominators. So we compare only their numerators, both 6 and 5 are greater than 4. So these two ribbons are more than enough for her gift wrapping. With ribbon length, 4/4 yard – since complete ribbons all the parts of the ribbon are available thus this length also enough to wrap the gift. Remaining 1/2, 3/8, and 1/3 – we shall make their denominators equal to 4/6 to compare
multiply (1/2) with (3/3) = 3/6, 3 is less than 4 in 4/6. So this is not having enough length
multiply (1/3) with (2/2) = 2/6, 2 is also less than 4. So this also not having enough length.
multiply (3/8) with (6/6) = 18/48 and (4/6) with (8/8) = 32/48. Since 18 is less than 32, this ribbon length also won’t be enough to wrap gifts. Thus Sarah could use only 6/6 yard, 4/4 yard, and 5/6 yard of ribbons to wrap the gift.

Question 14.
There are 8 people having breakfast. Each person wants $$\frac{1}{2}$$ of an omelet. How many whole omelets are needed? Use the models to show your answer. _____ omelets

Answer: Total they need 4 omelets.

Explanation:
Total no of having omelets are = 8
Each person need 1/2 of omelette, so for 8 persons = (1/2) * 8 = 4.

Question 15.
Michele mixed $$\frac{3}{4}$$ cup of flour with $$\frac{1}{2}$$ cup of water to make paste for an art project. Compare the fractions. Choose the symbol that makes the statement true. $$\frac{3}{4}$$ _____ $$\frac{1}{2}$$

Answer: $$\frac{3}{4}$$ > $$\frac{1}{2}$$.

Explanation: Let’s make 3/4 and 1/2 denominators the same (1/2) * (2/2) = 2/4.
Since 3 is greater than 2, 3/4 > 1/2.

Question 16.
Jeff has three boxes that weigh $$\frac{5}{8}$$, $$\frac{1}{8}$$, and $$\frac{3}{8}$$ pound. Write the weights in order from least to greatest.

Answer: $$\frac{1}{8}$$, $$\frac{3}{8}$$, $$\frac{5}{8}$$.

Explanation: Weights in the least to greatest form 1/8, 3/8, 5/8.

Question 17.
Ben measures the lengths of three insects. Draw a line to match each length on the left to the word on the right that describes its place in the order of lengths.  Question 18.
Kerri drew a model to show equivalent fractions. Use the model to complete the number sentence.
$$\frac{2}{3}$$ = $$\frac{□}{□}$$

Answer: $$\frac{2}{3}$$ = $$\frac{4}{6}$$.

Explanation: Here from the model four parts are shaded out of 6, which also equal to $$\frac{2}{3}$$ by value.

Question 19.
Elaine brought $$\frac{3}{4}$$ pound of potato salad to a picnic. Jake brought $$\frac{2}{3}$$ pound of macaroni salad. Who brought more salad? Explain the strategy you used to solve the problem.

Explanation:
Elaine has brought $$\frac{3}{4}$$ pound of potato salad
Jake brought $$\frac{2}{3}$$ pound of macaroni salad
Lets compare both parts by making their denominators same.Therefore multiply (3/4) * (3/3) = (9/12) and (2/3) * (4/4) = (8/12)
Since 8 is less than 9,$$\frac{8}{12}$$  < $$\frac{9}{12}$$.
Which means $$\frac{2}{3}$$ < $$\frac{3}{4}$$. Thus Elaine has brought more Salad compared to Jake.

Question 20.
It took Mike $$\frac{2}{6}$$ hour to clean his room. What fraction is equivalent to $$\frac{2}{6}$$ ?
$$\frac{2}{6}$$ = $$\frac{□}{□}$$

Answer: $$\frac{2}{6}$$ = $$\frac{1}{3}$$.
