MY DAUGHTER WROTE HER ANSWERS, BUT I WANT TO BE SURE THEY ARE CORRECT. THANKS.

  • math -

    Your daughter's thinking is correct.

    But you didn't state her answer.

    What is 3/4 of 12?

    Also -- please don't use all capital letters. It's considered to be shouting by internet etiquette.

  • math -

    Oh I'm sorry, just trying to be quick.

    Her answers are as follows:

    A. 3
    B. 9/16
    C. 9 and 3

    Thank you.

  • math -

    A is correct.

    B. 3/4 is three times as much as 1/4

    C. 3/4 of 12 = 9

  • math -

    can you explain b and c

  • math -

    B. 3/4 IS 3 TIMES AS MUCH AS ?

    Since the first question asks about 1/4, it seems logical that the second question is asking what 3 times 1/4 is.

    C. 3X3= ? SO 3/4 OF 12 IS?

    3 * 3 = 9
