Grandpa Mick opened a pint of ice crew. He gave his youngest grandchild 1/5 of the ice cream and his middle grandchild 1/4 of the remaining ice cream. Then, he gave his oldest grandchild 1/3 of the ice cream that was left after serving the others. Who got the most ice cream?

  1. 0
  2. 12
asked by teresa
  1. 4/5 * 3/4 * 2/3 = what was left in the end

    = .4 of original is left at the end


    call original amount 1
    then youngest gets .2
    that leaves .8
    then middle gets .8/4 = .2 as well
    that leaves .6
    oldest gets .6/3 = .2

    ROTFL !!!

  3. Tape diagram:
    -Split into 10
    -2= youngest
    -2= middle
    -2=oldest
    No one got the most ice cream.
    2+2+2=6. 6+2(Mick)=8
    There is 2 left.
