4th grade fractions

Word Problem:
Aaron has 9 new pencils. 4 of them are not red, 3 of them are blue, and 2 of them are yellow. What fraction of the pencils are NOT red? 4/9 or 5/9 ?

  • 4th grade fractions -

    Red pencils = 4/9

    9 - 4 = 5

    Not red = 5/9

  • 4th grade fractions CORRECTION -

    I'm sorry, but I read the question wrong.

    4 pencils are not red, so 4/9 are not red.

    Thanks, Writeacher for catching this mistake.
