Answer: A common multiple is a number that is a multiple of two or more numbers.

Concepts and Skills

Use a common denominator to write an equivalent fraction for each fraction. (TEKS 5.3)

Question 2.
$$\frac{2}{5}$$, $$\frac{1}{8}$$ common
denominator: ______________
Given fractions, $$\frac{2}{5}$$, $$\frac{1}{8}$$
The denominators and numerators are different here.
$$\frac{2}{5}$$ × $$\frac{8}{8}$$ = $$\frac{16}{40}$$
$$\frac{1}{8}$$ × $$\frac{5}{5}$$ = $$\frac{5}{40}$$
Thus the equivalent fractions are $$\frac{16}{40}$$, $$\frac{5}{40}$$

Question 3.
$$\frac{3}{4}$$, $$\frac{1}{2}$$ common
denominator: _______________
Given fractions, $$\frac{3}{4}$$, $$\frac{1}{2}$$
The denominators and numerators are different here.
$$\frac{3}{4}$$ × $$\frac{2}{2}$$ = $$\frac{6}{8}$$
$$\frac{1}{4}$$ × $$\frac{2}{2}$$ = $$\frac{2}{8}$$
Thus the equivalent fractions are $$\frac{6}{8}$$ and $$\frac{2}{8}$$

Question 4.
$$\frac{2}{3}$$, $$\frac{1}{6}$$ common
denominator: _____________
Given fractions, $$\frac{2}{3}$$, $$\frac{1}{6}$$
The denominators and numerators are different here.
$$\frac{2}{3}$$ × $$\frac{2}{2}$$ = $$\frac{4}{6}$$
$$\frac{1}{6}$$ × $$\frac{1}{1}$$ = $$\frac{1}{6}$$
Thus the equivalent fractions are $$\frac{4}{6}$$ and $$\frac{1}{6}$$

Find the sum or difference. Write your answer in simplest form. (TEKS 5.3.K)

Question 5.
$$\frac{5}{8}$$ + $$\frac{5}{8}$$
Given,
$$\frac{5}{8}$$ + $$\frac{5}{8}$$
The denominators of both the fractions are same.
$$\frac{5}{8}$$ + $$\frac{5}{8}$$ = (5 + 5)/8 = $$\frac{10}{8}$$ = $$\frac{5}{4}$$ = 1 $$\frac{1}{4}$$

Question 6.
3$$\frac{2}{3}$$ – 1$$\frac{2}{5}$$
3 + $$\frac{2}{3}$$ – 1 – $$\frac{2}{5}$$
3 – 1 = 2
$$\frac{2}{3}$$ – $$\frac{2}{5}$$
$$\frac{2}{3}$$ × $$\frac{5}{5}$$ – $$\frac{2}{5}$$ × $$\frac{3}{3}$$
= $$\frac{10}{15}$$ – $$\frac{6}{15}$$ = $$\frac{4}{15}$$
Thus, 3$$\frac{2}{3}$$ – 1$$\frac{2}{5}$$ = 2$$\frac{4}{15}$$

Question 7.
7$$\frac{3}{5}$$ + 3$$\frac{9}{20}$$
Given,
7$$\frac{3}{5}$$ + 3$$\frac{9}{20}$$
7+ $$\frac{3}{5}$$ + 3 + $$\frac{9}{20}$$
7 + 3 = 10
$$\frac{3}{5}$$ + $$\frac{9}{20}$$
$$\frac{12}{20}$$ + $$\frac{9}{20}$$ = $$\frac{21}{20}$$ = 1 $$\frac{1}{20}$$
10 + 1 + $$\frac{1}{20}$$ = 11$$\frac{1}{20}$$

Find the product. Write the product in simplest form. Use a model. (TEKS 5.3.I)

Question 8.
$$\frac{3}{5}$$ × 8 = ____________
$$\frac{3}{5}$$ × 8 = $$\frac{24}{5}$$ = 4 $$\frac{4}{5}$$

Question 9.
$$\frac{1}{4}$$ × 10 = ____________
$$\frac{1}{4}$$ × 10 = $$\frac{10}{4}$$ = $$\frac{5}{2}$$ = 1 $$\frac{1}{2}$$

Question 10.
$$\frac{5}{7}$$ × 15 = ____________
$$\frac{5}{7}$$ × 15 = $$\frac{75}{7}$$ = 10 $$\frac{5}{7}$$

Question 11.
$$\frac{5}{6}$$ × 2 = ____________
$$\frac{5}{6}$$ × 2 = $$\frac{10}{6}$$ = $$\frac{5}{3}$$ = 1 $$\frac{2}{3}$$

Question 12.
$$\frac{1}{5}$$ × 10 = ____________
$$\frac{1}{5}$$ × 10 = $$\frac{10}{5}$$ = 2

Question 13.
7 × $$\frac{1}{6}$$ = ____________
7 × $$\frac{1}{6}$$ = $$\frac{7}{6}$$ = 1 $$\frac{1}{6}$$

Divide. Use a model or strategy. (TEKS 5.3.J, 5.3.L)

Question 14.

Given,
Natasha bought $$\frac{1}{4}$$ pound of green grapes and $$\frac{2}{3}$$ pound of red grapes.
She ate $$\frac{1}{2}$$ pound of the grapes.
$$\frac{1}{4}$$ + $$\frac{2}{3}$$ = $$\frac{11}{12}$$
$$\frac{11}{12}$$ – $$\frac{1}{2}$$ = $$\frac{5}{12}$$ pound
Thus the correct answer is option B.
