Alana practiced dancing for 11/4 hours on Monday 19/8 hours on Wednesday and 2 3/5 hours on Friday. On which day did she practice on the closest to 2 hours? Explain your reasoning/
Im not sure for this one

11/4 = 2 3/4 = 2 30/40
19/8 = 2 3/8 = 2 15/40
2 3/5 = 2 24/40

Math  Jerald, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 8:39pm
For 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?

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

Math  Jerald, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 8:42pm
So is the answer 11/4

Math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 8:45pm
No. Please reread the question.

How can I find out which fraction is the closest to 2 hours?

Math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 8:56pm
All of those numbers are over two hours. Which has the smallest fraction?

Math  Jerald, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 9:00pm
3/8?

Math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 9:13pm
Right.
