At Jefferson School, both 6th grade & 7th grade classes take a math test. The average score for the 6th grade is 80 and for the 7th grade is 90. If there are twice as many students, in the 7th grade as there is in the 6th grade, what is the average test score for both grades together?
80+90+90/3 = 86.6. I have to put 86.6 as a fraction in simplest form but I don't know what it is. Help please?

  1. If you have to use a fraction, why evaluate as a decimal? The average is 260/3.

    Of course, as a practical value, 86.7 is better than the fraction, since it is easier to visualize as a number on a scale of 1-100. But it is not as exact.

  14. 86.6 is an addition of two numbers. They are; 86 and 0.6. 86 is already a whole number but 0.6 is not so lets change that. 0.6 can also be said to be 6/10. To broken down in the simplest form,lets divide both numbers(6&10) by their L.C.M which is 2 so we get 3/5. Therefore we add both 86 and 3/5 to give us 86+3/5=433/5. Therefore our final answer is equal to 86 whole number 3 over 5
