Football 3/12

Basketball 4/12

Soccer 3/12

Baseball 2/2

Answer:1/2?

Simplify the fraction if possible

**Sam**, Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 6:58pmthe first part is just 3/12 + 4/12 + 2/2

= 3/12 + 4/12 + 12/12= 19/12 of the school.

The second part is 19/12 - 3/12 = 16/12

**Jerald**, Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 6:59pmSo my answer is wrong?

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 7:06pmBoth your answer and Sam's are wrong.

Assuming that 2/12 (not 2/2) likes baseball --

What part of the school population likes basketball,baseball,or football?**9/12 = 3/4**

How much larger is this then the part of the student population that prefers soccer?**3/12 = 1/4**

It's three times as large.
