Annie walked her dog 2 1/4 miles from her house to the dog park and 3/7/8 miles around the park.Then she walked the same distance home.How many miles did she walk in all?

    2 2/8 + 3 7/8 = 5 9/8 = 6 1/8 mile

    6 1/8 + 6 1/8 = ?

    How did you figure that out.Iam trying to explain to my 4 th grader

  • fractions - ,

    When we add or subtract fractions, we must have a common denonimator.

    2 1/4 = 2 2/8

    When I added the two fractions, I added the whole numbers and the numerators. That is 5 9/8. But since 9/8 is larger than 1, I simplified the fraction to 6 1/8.

    Which part doesn't the child understand?

  • fractions - ,

    9/8 when you simplified it.

    If you divide two pizzas into 8ths, you have 8 in one pizza and 8 in the other pizza. 9/8 is all of the pieces in one plus one piece from the other.

    You might draw a picture for the child showing the two pizzas.
