**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 7:27pmYour daughter's thinking is correct.

But you didn't state her answer.

What is 3/4 of 12?

Also -- please don't use all capital letters. It's considered to be shouting by internet etiquette.

**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 8:41pmB. 3/4 IS 3 TIMES AS MUCH AS ?

Since the first question asks about 1/4, it seems logical that the second question is asking what 3 times 1/4 is.

C. 3X3= ? SO 3/4 OF 12 IS?

3 * 3 = 9
