2. On Jiskha, students need to make some effort to help themselves. I will not give you the answer. You need to think for yourself.

4. It's not A. There must be more than a fraction of an ounce in each cup. That would just be a couple of drops.

10. Yes -- and I taught in a real classroom for 32 years.

My strategy -- you have three choices. You learned that two were wrong. I thought you could figure out the right one from that information.

12. Hi Ms. Sue!!! I hope u r doing well.
I t hi inknthe answer is C Because I know that it has to be a fraction of 5/24 or 24/5 and not a whole number. At first I thought it was A but then I checked again and knew already that it was C. Is this correct just to be sure? And sorry about some of the kids who aren't nice I'm glad your a teacher your helping me that's for sure so dont feel bad or disrespected. Byee have a good day.
