Ms Sue thank you for the help with my other word problem can you check this one for me?
Write a word problem and find the solution to the equation. 1/22/3
THe answer is 1/6 and the word problem I created is:
Janet put 6 suckers on a table. 3 suckers were watermelon and 3 were grape. 1 student took a grape sucker. Of the total suckers, how many were taken?
Ms. Sue would this come out to being 1/6?

mathms sue please  Ms. Sue, Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at 4:24pm
I think 1/6 was taken.
How about this one?
Katy and Alicia are working on sewing projects. Katy has 1/2 yard, but she needs 2/3 of a yard. So Alicia loans Katy the 2/3 yard, and Katy gives her the 1/2 yard. Katy now owes Alicia 1/6 yard; thus it's 1/6.
