Math  Michael, Thursday, March 25, 2010 at 7:21pm
i mean 2 3/6 or 2 1/2

Math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, March 25, 2010 at 7:23pm
You're right about 15/6.
Now simplify it by dividing 15 by 6.
Remember, you are looking for a little more than half of 3.

thanks!

I'm sorry, but I made a mistake. You're looking for a number just less than 3. And you found it. 5/6 of 3 is 2 1/2.
