NELSON GOT A PACK OF 12 PENCILS. HE TOOK 3 PENCILS TO PUT IN HIS DESK AT SCHOOL AND 2 PENCILS TO PUT IN HIS LOCKER AT SCHOOL. WHAT IS THE FRACTION OF TOTAL PENCILS THAT NELSON TOOK TO SCHOOL?

FIND THE AREA OF A CORNFIELD WITH BASE 65 METERS 55.5 METERS AND A HEIGTH OF 48.5 METERS

STOP SHOUTING!!
3+2 = 5
Nelson took 5/12 to school
(assuming that he actually took the saved pencils to school)

excuse me? cornfields have area, but no height.
