**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 8:36pm11/4 = 2 3/4 = 2 30/40

19/8 = 2 3/8 = 2 15/40

2 3/5 = 2 24/40

**Jerald**, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 8:39pmFor 2 3/5 how did you get the answer 2 24/40 since it already has the whole number on 2 3/5. Do you put the whole number when you divide?

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 8:41pmYes. I changed 3/5 to 24/40 so the fractions would have a common denominator.

**Jerald**, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 8:42pmSo is the answer 11/4

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 8:45pmNo. Please reread the question.
