what is 5/6 of 3?

Mike or Mason  I showed you how to do the last problem like this. Now it's your turn.
I'll be glad to check your answer. 
3 5/6

is it 3 5/6?

No.
Multiply:
5/6 * 3/1 = 
Will you check my work above, i think i did it right this time!!!

um, Is it 15/6 = 3 3/6?

i mean 2 3/6 or 2 1/2

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.
