  3. I vote for A.

    You're looking for the fraction of one dozen.

  4. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
