    Your teacher probably wants you to find the common multiple of 2, 5, 6, and 8.

    The simpler way is to convert each of these fractions to decimals.

    1/2 = 0.5
    2/5 = 0.4
    3/6 = 0.5
    3/8 = 0.375
    4/6 = 0.67

    please show how you converted
    1/2 = 0.5
    2/5 = 0.4
    3/6 = 0.5
    3/8 = 0.375
    4/6 = 0.67

    I used a calculator and divided the numerator by the denominator.

    Which decimal is larger than 0.5?

  • Math problems - , Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 9:09pm

    are you just doubling what she ran on friday?

    4/6 = 0.67

    The question just asks how far she ran on Saturday.

    You're answer of 4/6 is correct.
