Homework Help: Math / Fractions

Posted by Jenni on Wednesday, August 27, 2008 at 4:49am.

I am having a hard time figuring out how to solve these fraction word problems.

For example: A patch of dirt needs 3 5/6 cubic yards (yd3) of concrete to cover it. If Nick decides to cover only 3/4 of the dirt . how much sod does he need.

How do I work this problem?
It has been 21 years since I have done fractions and I was ok with adding, subtracting them and multiplying them , until I got to the word problems.
