    Cynthia bought a carton of 1 dozen eggs. She used 1/6 of the eggs when cooking breakfast and 1/3 of the eggs to make a cake. Which expression represents the fraction of the dozen eggs that Cynthia has left?
    A.1-(1/6+1/3)
    B.1/3-1/6
    C.1/3+16
    D.12-(1/3+1/6
    D?

  • Math -

    I vote for A.

    You're looking for the fraction of one dozen.

  • Math -

    Thank you. But can you show me you D is wrong? Since 1 dozen equals 12 and so I thought you'd need to subtract 1/3 and 1/6 from 12

    What would you get if you subtract 1/3 and 1/6 from 12?

    Anabelle, this isn't a place to tell people to follow you on instagram. And if that's your dream, well.. you should really think about your life.

    Sorry, couldn't resist replying to that.

    Matthew was trying to add fractions with unlike denominators. He thought if you find the common denominator for the fractions and simply add the numerators, you would get the correct sum.
    5/6 + 3/2 =8/6.
    Where did Matthew go wrong and show the correct way to add the fractions.
