estimate by rounding the fractions
a. 7 8/9* 5 1/13
b. 34 9/10 divided by 4 9/10
c. 14 19/39 divided by 19/39

math 
Ms. Sue,
I'll do the first one:
8 * 5 = 40
I'll be glad to check your answers for the others. 
math 
yolanda,
thank you ms. sue

math 
Ms. Sue,
The second is correct. 35/5
The third one isn't 15 and 20.
Is 14 19/39 closer to 15?
Look more carefully at 19/39 
math 
yolanda,
i have a hard time with fractions. would i divide 19/39 to get .48 and round up to get .50 which would be 14 and .50 to go up to 15 and say 15/.5? thanks for your help.

math 
Ms. Sue,
You're on the right track.
However, 19/39 is still less than half.
I'd round one of these fractions up and the other down to get  14/1 = 14
