Nadia 4/9 h to complete her Language Arts homework and 2/9 h to complete her mathematics homework. Which takes longer? How much longer?
I just need to know am I right or wrong?
I calculated Wednesday to have 3 inches of snow. Which is 2 inches more than Sunday.
Thank you.

Ms. Sue,
(4/9) * 60 = 240/9 = 26.67 minutes
(2/9) * 60 = 120/9 = 13.33 minutes

Matty,
I got this wrong? I was suppose to keep it in fractions. And I came up with it took Languarge Arts longer ? Do I just turn the 26.67 and 13.33 into a fraction? then subtract the two minutes? Please help.
