### Fractions and Decimals STEAM VIDEO/Performance

**STEAM Video**

**Space is Big**

An astronomical unit (AU) is the average distance between Earth and the Sun, about 93 million miles. Why do astronomers use astronomical units to measure distances in space? In what different ways can you compare the distances between objects and the locations of objects using the four mathematical operations?

Answer:

The space beyond Earth is so incredibly vast that units of measure

which are convenient for us in our everyday lives can become GIGANTIC.

Distances between the planets, and especially between the stars,

can become so big when expressed in miles and kilometers that they’re unwieldy.

So for cosmic distances, we switch to whole other types of units:

astronomical units, light years and parsecs.

Astronomical units, abbreviated AU, are a useful unit of measure

within our solar system. One AU is the distance from the Sun to Earth’s orbit,

which is about 93 million miles (150 million kilometers).

**Watch the STEAM Video “Space is Big.” Then answer the following questions.**

1. You know the distances between the Sun and each planet.

How can you ﬁnd the minimum and maximum distances between

two planets as they rotate around the Sun?

Given the distances between the sun and each planet we

can find the minimum and maximum approximately distances

between two planets around the sun, we have each

planet distance now we will see which is farthest and

which planet is near to sun, then subtract the larger one

from smaller and tell the distances from them,

Example the distance from sun to mars is 5 AU and

sun to mercury is 2 AU,

then the distance from mercury to mars is 5 – 2 = 3 AU.

2. The table shows the distances of three celestial bodies from Earth.

It takes about three days to travel from Earth to the Moon.

How can you estimate the amount of time it would take to travel from

Earth to the Sun or to Venus?

Earth to the Sun ≈ 1190 days ,

Earth to Venus ≈ 330 days

Explanation:

Speed = Distance ÷ Time ,

We have distance from Earth to Moon is 0.00256 and

time is 3 days = 3 X 24 = 72 hours

now speed is = 0.00256 ÷ 72 = 0.0000355 AU per hour,

now we have distance from Earth to Sun is 1 AU and speed as

0.000035 per hour, Time taken is distance by speed =

1 ÷ 0.000035 = 28571.428 hours, now we divide by 24 to get days as

28571.428 ÷ 24 = 1190.4 days ≈ 1190 days to travel from Earth to Sun,

now we have distance from Earth to Venus as 0.277 Au and speed as

0.000035 per hour, Time taken is 0.277 ÷ 0.000035 = 7914.28 hours,

now we divide by 24 to get number of days as 7914.28 ÷ 24 = 329.7 ≈

330 days to travel from Earth to Venus.

**Performance Task**

**Space Explorers**

After completing this chapter, you will be able to use the concepts you learned to answer the questions in the STEAM Video Performance Task.

You will use a table that shows the average distances between the Sun and each planet in our solar system to ﬁnd several distances in space. Then you will use the speed of the Orion spacecraft to answer questions about time and distance.

Is it realistic for a manned spacecraft to travel to each planet in our solar system? Explain why or why not.

**MODELING REAL LIFE**

You have a recipe that serves 6 people. The recipe uses three-fourths of a cup of milk.

a. How can you use the recipe to serve more people? How much milk would you need? Give 2 examples.

b. How can you use the recipe to serve fewer people? How much milk would you need? Give 2 examples.

a. Example 1: To serve 8 people we need

\(\frac{8}{6}\) recipe + \(\frac{24}{4}\) milk

Example 2 : To serve 10 people we need

\(\frac{10}{6}\) recipe + \(\frac{30}{4}\) milk.

Explanation:

Given 1 recipe serves 6 people and uses three-fourths of a cup of milk,

a. We can use the recipe to serve more people and milk would we need are

6 persons = 1 recipe + \(\frac{3}{4}\) milk

1 person = \(\frac{1}{6}\) recipe + \(\frac{3}{4}\) milk

Example 1 : 8 persons = \(\frac{8}{6}\) recipe + \(\frac{24}{4}\) milk

Example 2 : 10 persons = \(\frac{10}{6}\) recipe + \(\frac{30}{4}\) milk

b. We can use the recipe to serve fewer people and milk would we need are

6 persons = 1 recipe + \(\frac{3}{4}\) milk

1 person = \(\frac{1}{6}\) recipe + \(\frac{3}{4}\) milk

5 persons = \(\frac{5}{6}\) recipe + \(\frac{15}{4}\) milk

4 persons = \(\frac{4}{6}\) recipe + \(\frac{12}{4}\) milk.

**Vocabulary**

The following vocabulary terms are deﬁned in this chapter. Think about what each term might mean and record your thoughts.

Reciprocals : In mathematics, the reciprocal, also known as multiplicative inverse,

is the inverse of a number x. denoted as 1/x or x^{-1}.

This means that the product of a number x and its reciprocal yields 1.

The reciprocal of a number is simply the number that has been flipped or

inverted upside-down. This entails transposing a number such that

the numerator and denominator are placed at the bottom and top respectively.

To find the reciprocal of a whole number, just convert it into a fraction in

which the original number is the denominator and the numerator is 1.

The reciprocal of 2/3 is 3/2.

The product of 2/3 and its reciprocal 3/2 is 1.

2/3 x 3/2 = 1.

### Lesson 2.1 Multiplying Fractions

**EXPLORATION 1**

**Using Models to Solve a Problem**

**Work with a partner. A bottle of water is \(\frac{1}{2}\) full. You drink \(\frac{2}{3}\) of the water. Use one of the models to ﬁnd the portion of the bottle of water that you drink. Explain your steps.**

We use area model to give the portion of the bottle of water

that I drink is \(\frac{1}{3}\) of the bottle.

Explanation:

Given a bottle of water is \(\frac{1}{2}\) full.

I drink \(\frac{2}{3}\) of the water. So the portion of the bottle of water

that I drink is \(\frac{1}{2}\) X \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{2}{6}\) =

\(\frac{1}{3}\) of the bottle.

We draw an area model to find the product

Step 1: We are given with \(\frac{1}{2}\) so

we take shade 1 part out of 2,

Step 2: We have \(\frac{2}{3}\) now we shade

2 parts out of 3

Step 4 : We multiply the numerators as 1 X 2 = 2

Step 5: We multiply the denominators as 2 X 3 = 6

Step 6 : The purple area came through overlapping which is the product as

2 parts out of 6 or 1 part out of 3 and write the fraction

in the simplest form as \(\frac{2}{6}\) or \(\frac{1}{3}\)

So the portion of the bottle of water that I drink is

\(\frac{2}{6}\) = \(\frac{1}{3}\) of the bottle.

Explanation:

a. Used area model to ﬁnd the portion of the park that is covered by the playground.

Given a park has a playground that is \(\frac{3}{4}\) of its width and

\(\frac{4}{5}\) of its length. So the portion of the park

that is covered by the playground is \(\frac{3}{4}\) X \(\frac{4}{5}\)

we explain this by an area model as

Step 1: We are given with \(\frac{3}{4}\) so we take shade 3 parts out of 4,

Step 2: We have \(\frac{4}{5}\) now we shade 4 parts out of 5

Step 4 : We multiply the numerators as 3 X 4 = 12

Step 5: We multiply the denominators as 4 X 5 = 20

Step 6 : The purple area came through overlapping which is the product as

12 parts out of 20 or 3 part out of 5 and write the fraction

in the simplest form as \(\frac{12}{20}\) or \(\frac{3}{5}\)

The portion of the park that is covered by the playground is

\(\frac{12}{20}\) = \(\frac{3}{5}\).

b. Without using a model we have first part is \(\frac{3}{4}\) and

second part is \(\frac{4}{5}\)

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 3 X 4 = 12

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 4 X 5 = 20

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{12}{20}\) or \(\frac{3}{5}\),

The portion of the park that is covered by the playground is \(\frac{12}{20}\) =

\(\frac{3}{5}\).

Question 14.

\(\frac{1}{8}\) X \(\frac{1}{6}\) = \(\frac{1}{48}\)

Explanation:

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 1 X 1 = 1

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 8 X 6 =48

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{1}{48}\),

So \(\frac{1}{8}\) X \(\frac{1}{6}\) = \(\frac{1}{48}\).

Question 15.

\(\frac{3}{8}\) X \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{6}{24}\) = \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Explanation:

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 3 X 2 = 6

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 8 X 3 =24

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{6}{24}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 6, 6 X 1 = 6 and 6 X 4 = 24, (1,4),

So \(\frac{3}{8}\) X \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{6}{24}\) = \(\frac{1}{4}\).

Question 16.

2 \(\frac{1}{6}\) X 4 \(\frac{2}{5}\) = \(\frac{286}{30}\) = \(\frac{143}{15}\) = 9 \(\frac{8}{15}\)

Question 18.

**USING TOOLS**

Write a multiplication problem involving fractions that is represented by the model. Explain your reasoning.

The multiplication problem involving fractions that is represented by the model

\(\frac{4}{5}\) X \(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{4}{15}\)

Explanation:

Given the area model as shown in figure we take the first fraction part

as 4 out of 5 as yellow area represents 4 parts out of 5 and the second fraction

part is 1 out of 3 with blue now the products of fraction is

\(\frac{4}{5}\) X \(\frac{1}{3}\) =

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 4 X 1 = 4

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 5 X 3 = 15

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{4}{15}\),

which is the green area came through overlapping which is the product as

Explanation:

We write 1/2 as 4 by 8 on the number line,

now we take 3 parts of 4 from 4/8 we get results as

\(\frac{3}{8}\) on the number line or we take 3 times \(\frac{1}{8}\) on

number line we get \(\frac{3}{8}\).

Question 20.

You spend \(\frac{5}{12}\) of a day at an amusement park. You spend \(\frac{2}{5}\) of that time riding waterslides. How many hours do you spend riding waterslides? Draw a model to show why your answer makes sense.

I spent 4 hours for riding waterslides

Explanation:

Given I spend \(\frac{5}{12}\) of a day at an amusement park means

out of 24 hours so hours spent at the park is \(\frac{5}{12}\) X 24 = 10 hours.

Now in 10 hours we spend \(\frac{2}{5}\) of that time riding waterslides means

number of hours spent riding waterslides is 10 X \(\frac{2}{5}\) = 4 hours.

So I spent 4 hours for riding waterslides.

We take area model as shown in the picture first part as 5 out of 12 and second part as 24

we get 120 by 12 as 10 hours and from 10 hours we spent 2 out of 5 we get 4 hours.

Question 21.

A venue is preparing for a concert on the ﬂoor shown. The width of the red carpet is \(\frac{1}{6}\) of the width of the ﬂoor. What is the area of the red carpet?

The area of the red carpet is 1057 square feet

Explanation:

Given the width of floor is 63 feet, So width of the red carpet is \(\frac{1}{6}\) X 63 =

\(\frac{63}{6}\) we can simplify as both goes in 3we get \(\frac{21}{2}\),

Now we write length of floor 100 \(\frac{2}{3}\) as 100 X 3 + 2 by 3 as \(\frac{302}{3}\), Now we has width and length of the carpet so area of the carpet is

\(\frac{302}{3}\) X \(\frac{21}{2}\) = \(\frac{6342}{6}\)

both goes in 6 so we get 1057 square feet.

Question 22.

You travel 9\(\frac{3}{8}\) miles from your house to a shopping mall. You travel \(\frac{2}{3}\) of that distance on an interstate. The only road construction you encounter is on the ﬁrst \(\frac{2}{5}\) of the interstate. On how many miles of your trip do you encounter construction?

I encounter \(\frac{5}{2}\) or 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\) miles of construction of my trip.

Explanation:

Given I travel 9\(\frac{3}{8}\) we write mixed fraction as fraction as

9 X 8 + 3 by 8 = \(\frac{75}{8}\) now I travel \(\frac{2}{3}\) of that distance on an interstate,

So the distance on the interstate is \(\frac{2}{3}\) X \(\frac{75}{8}\) = \(\frac{150}{24}\) both goes in 6 we get \(\frac{25}{4}\) miles.

Now in \(\frac{25}{4}\) the only construction I encounter is \(\frac{2}{5}\) of

\(\frac{25}{4}\),

So \(\frac{2}{5}\) X \(\frac{25}{4}\) =

\(\frac{50}{20}\) = \(\frac{5}{2}\) miles,

As numerator is greater than denominator we write in mixed fraction

also as (2 X 2 + 1 by 2 ), 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\) miles.

As both sides we have \(\frac{4}{7}\) both gets cancelled and we get 1 in left side

and \(\frac{9}{10}\) in right side as we know 1 is greater than \(\frac{9}{10}\)

so \(\frac{4}{7}\) > \(\frac{9}{10}\) X \(\frac{4}{7}\).

Explanation:

As both sides we have \(\frac{5}{8}\) both gets cancelled and we get 1 in right side

and \(\frac{22}{15}\) in left side as we know 1 is less than \(\frac{22}{15}\)

as numerator is greater than denominator so \(\frac{5}{8}\) X \(\frac{22}{15}\) > \(\frac{5}{8}\).

Question 35.

= as \(\frac{7}{7}\) = 1

Explanation:

As both sides we have \(\frac{5}{6}\) both gets cancelled and we get 1 in left side

and \(\frac{7}{7}\) = 1 in right side as both are equal to 1, so \(\frac{5}{6}\) = \(\frac{5}{6}\) X \(\frac{7}{7}\).

Question 55.

**PROBLEM SOLVING**

You make a banner for a football rally.

a. What is the area of the banner?

b. You add a \(\frac{1}{4}\)-foot border on each side. What is the area of the new banner?

a. Area of the banner is 7 square feet

b. The area of new banner is 10\(\frac{15}{16}\) square feet

Explanation:

a. Given width of banner as 4\(\frac{2}{3}\) ft and height as 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) feet,Therefore the area of banner is 4\(\frac{2}{3}\) X 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) so

first we write mixed numbers 4\(\frac{2}{3}\) as 4 X 3 + 2 by 3 = \(\frac{14}{3}\) and 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) as 1 X 2 + 1 by 2 = \(\frac{3}{2}\)

now we multiply \(\frac{14}{3}\) X \(\frac{3}{2}\),

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 14 X 3 = 42

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 3 X 2 = 6

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{42}{6}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 6, 6 X 7 = 42 and 6 X 1 = 6, (7,1),

4\(\frac{2}{3}\) X 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) = 7 square feet.

b. Now we add a \(\frac{1}{4}\)-foot border on each side now the width changes to

\(\frac{14}{3}\) X \(\frac{1}{4}\) =\(\frac{14 x 1}{3 X 4}\)= \(\frac{14}{12}\) on simplification both goes in 2 we get \(\frac{7}{6}\),

the new width is \(\frac{14}{3}\) + \(\frac{7}{6}\) we get 14 x 2 + 7 by 6 = \(\frac{35}{6}\) and new height changes to \(\frac{3}{2}\) X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{3}{8}\) now the new height becomes \(\frac{3}{2}\) + \(\frac{3}{8}\) we get (3 X 4 + 3 by 8) = \(\frac{15}{8}\), Now the area of the new banner is \(\frac{35}{6}\) X \(\frac{15}{8}\)

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 35 X 15 = 525

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 6 X 8 = 48

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{525}{48}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 3, 3 X 175 = 525 and 3 X 16 = 48, (175,16),

\(\frac{175}{16}\), As numerator is greater than denominator we write in mixed fraction also as (10 X 16 + 15 by 16), 10\(\frac{15}{16}\) square feet.

**MULTIPLYING FRACTIONS AND MIXED NUMBERS**

**Multiply. Write the answer in simplest form.**

Question 56.

= \(\frac{2}{15}\)

Explanation:

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 1 X 3 X 4 = 12

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 2 X 5 X 9 = 90

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{12}{90}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 6, 6 X 2 = 12 and 6 X 15 = 90, (2,15),

So \(\frac{1}{2}\) X \(\frac{3}{5}\) X \(\frac{4}{9}\) = \(\frac{2}{15}\).

Question 57.

= \(\frac{25}{12}\) = 2\(\frac{1}{12}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as \(\frac{4}{7}\) X 4\(\frac{3}{8}\) X \(\frac{5}{6}\),

first we write mixed numbers 4\(\frac{3}{8}\) as 4 X 8 + 3 by 8 = \(\frac{35}{8}\) now we multiply \(\frac{4}{7}\) X \(\frac{35}{8}\) X \(\frac{5}{6}\)

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 4 X 35 X 5 = 700

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 7 X 8 X 6 = 336

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{700}{336}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 28, 28 X 25 = 700 and 28 X 12 = 336, (25,12),

So \(\frac{4}{7}\) X 4\(\frac{3}{8}\) X \(\frac{5}{6}\) = \(\frac{25}{12}\), As numerator is greater than denominator we write in mixed fraction

also as (2 X12 + 1 by 12), 2\(\frac{1}{12}\).

Question 58.

= \(\frac{132}{5}\) = 26\(\frac{2}{5}\).

Explanation:

Given expression as 1\(\frac{1}{15}\) X 5\(\frac{2}{5}\) X 4\(\frac{7}{12}\),first we write mixed numbers 1\(\frac{1}{15}\) as 1 X 15 + 1 by 15 = \(\frac{16}{15}\), 5\(\frac{2}{5}\) as 5 X 5 + 2 by 5 = \(\frac{27}{5}\),

4\(\frac{7}{12}\) as 4 X 12 + 7 by 12 = 55 by 12 = \(\frac{55}{12}\)

now we multiply \(\frac{16}{15}\) X \(\frac{27}{5}\) X \(\frac{55}{12}\)

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 16 X 27 X 55 = 23760

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 15 X 5 X 12 = 900

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{23760}{900}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 180, 180 X 132 = 23760 and 180 X 5 = 900, (132,5),

So 1\(\frac{1}{15}\) X 5\(\frac{2}{5}\) X 4\(\frac{7}{12}\) =

\(\frac{132}{5}\). As numerator is greater than denominator we write in

mixed fraction also as (26 X 5 + 2 by 5), 26\(\frac{2}{5}\).

Question 59.

= \(\frac{27}{125}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as (\(\frac{3}{5}\))^{3 }we write as \(\frac{3}{5}\) X \(\frac{3}{5}\) X \(\frac{3}{5}\) now

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 3 X 3 X 3 = 27

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 5 X 5 X 5 = 125

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{27}{125}\).

therefore (\(\frac{3}{5}\))^{3 }= (\(\frac{27}{125}\)).

Question 60.

= \(\frac{9}{25}\)

Explanation :

Now we write the expression as (\(\frac{4}{5}\))^{2 }X (\(\frac{3}{4}\))^{2 }=

\(\frac{4}{5}\) X \(\frac{4}{5}\) X \(\frac{3}{4}\) X \(\frac{3}{4}\) now Step I: We multiply the numerators as 4 X 4 X 3 X 3 = 144

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 5 X 5 X 4 X 4 = 400

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{144}{400}\)

we can further simplify as both goes in 16, 16 X 9 = 144 and 16 X 25 = 400, (9,25),

therefore (\(\frac{4}{5}\))^{2 }X (\(\frac{3}{4}\))^{2 }= \(\frac{9}{25}\).

Question 61.

= \(\frac{121}{144}\)

Explanation:

First we write mixed fraction into fraction as 1\(\frac{1}{10}\) = 1 X 10 +1 by 10 =

\(\frac{11}{10}\), Now we write (\(\frac{5}{6}\))^{2 }X (\(\frac{11}{10}\))^{2 }= \(\frac{5}{6}\) X \(\frac{5}{6}\) X \(\frac{11}{10}\) X \(\frac{11}{10}\) now Step I: We multiply the numerators as 5 X 5 X 11 X 11 = 3025

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 6 X 6 X 10 X 10 = 3600

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{3025}{3600}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 25, 25 X 121 = 3025 and 25 X 144 = 3600, (121,144),

therefore (\(\frac{5}{6}\))^{2 }X (1\(\frac{1}{10}\))^{2 }= \(\frac{121}{144}\).

Question 62.

**OPEN-ENDED**

Find a fraction that, when multiplied by \(\frac{1}{2}\), is less than \(\frac{1}{4}\).

\(\frac{1}{3}\)

Explanation:

Let us take on fraction as \(\frac{1}{3}\) which when multiplied by \(\frac{1}{2}\) we get numerator as 1 X 1 = 1 and denominator as 3 X 2 = 6 as \(\frac{1}{6}\) < \(\frac{1}{4}\), So we take \(\frac{1}{3}\) as

\(\frac{1}{3}\) X \(\frac{1}{2}\) < \(\frac{1}{4}\).

Question 63.

**LOGIC**

You are in a bike race. When you get to the ﬁrst checkpoint, you are \(\frac{2}{5}\) of the distance to the second checkpoint. When you get to the second checkpoint, you are \(\frac{1}{4}\) of the distance to the ﬁnish. What is the distance from the start to the ﬁrst checkpoint?

The distance from the start to the ﬁrst checkpoint is 4 miles

Explanation:

Given total distance is 40 miles and first check point is \(\frac{2}{5}\)

of the distance to the second checkpoint and second checkpoint is

\(\frac{1}{4}\) of the distance to the ﬁnish, So second checkpoint is \(\frac{1}{4}\) X 40 as both goes in 4 we get 10 miles, At 10 miles we have second checkpoint,

now the distance from the start to the ﬁrst checkpoint is \(\frac{2}{5}\) X Second checkpoint \(\frac{2}{5}\) X 10,

Step 1 : We multiply the numerators as 2 X 10

Step II: Denominator is 5,

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{20}{5}\)

we can further simplify as both goes in 5, 5 X 4 = 20 and 5 X 1 = 5, (4,1) = 4 miles,

therefore the distance from the start to the ﬁrst checkpoint is 4 miles.

Question 64.

**NUMBER SENSE**

Is the product of two positive mixed numbers ever less than 1? Explain.

No, the product of two positive mixed numbers never ever be less than 1,

Explanation:

We know a mixed must be greater than 1 and two numbers

that are greater than one that are multiplied together end up

being greater that either number by itself. So the product of two

positive mixed numbers never ever be less than 1.

Question 65.

**REASONING**

You plan to add a fountain to your garden.

a. Draw a diagram of the fountain in the garden. Label the dimensions.

b. Describe two methods for ﬁnding the area of the garden that surrounds the fountain.

c. Find the area. Which method did you use, and why?

a.

b. 1. Subtract area of the fountain from the total area of the garden or

2. We use rectangles to find the area of each piece of the garden and add these areas.

c. Area of the garden is 44\(\frac{3}{8}\) square feet, Used

Subtract method because of fewer calculations.

Explanation:

a. We have taken measurements of fountain and drawn the fountain in the

garden as shown with labels of width of fountain as 3\(\frac{1}{3}\) and

height of the fountain as 5\(\frac{1}{4}\).

b. To find the area of the garden that surrounds the fountain first we

subtract area of the fountain from the total area of the garden or

We use rectangles to find the area of each piece of the garden and add these areas.

c. We use subtraction method first we calculate area of garden as

9\(\frac{1}{6}\) X 6\(\frac{3}{4}\)

First we write mixed fraction into fraction as 9\(\frac{1}{6}\) = 9 X 6 + 1 by 6 =

\(\frac{55}{6}\), 6\(\frac{3}{4}\) = 6 X 4 + 3 by 4 = \(\frac{27}{4}\) Now we multiply \(\frac{55}{6}\) X \(\frac{27}{4}\)

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 55 X 27 = 1485

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 6 X 4 = 24

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{1485}{24}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 3, 3 X 495 = 1485 and 3 X 8 = 24, (495,8),

9\(\frac{1}{6}\) X 6\(\frac{3}{4}\) = \(\frac{495}{8}\).

Now we calculate area of fountain as 5\(\frac{1}{4}\) X 3 \(\frac{1}{3}\),

First we write mixed fraction into fraction as 5\(\frac{1}{4}\) = 5 X 4 + 1 by 4 =

\(\frac{21}{4}\) and 3 \(\frac{1}{3}\) = 3 X 3 + 1 by 3 = \(\frac{10}{3}\) ,Step I: We multiply the numerators as 21 X 10 = 210

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 4 X 3 = 12

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{210}{12}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 6, 6 X 35 = 210 and 6 X 2 = 12, (35,2),

5\(\frac{1}{4}\) X 3\(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{35}{2}\).

Therefore area of garden is total area of garden – area of fountain so

\(\frac{495}{8}\) – \(\frac{35}{2}\) = (495 – 35 X 4) by 8 = \(\frac{355}{8}\) ,As numerator is greater than denominator we write in

mixed fraction also as (44 X 8 + 3 by 8), 44\(\frac{3}{8}\) square feet,

Therefore area of the garden is 44\(\frac{3}{8}\) square feet,

Here we have used subtraction method because we can do fewer calculations.

Question 66.

**PROBLEM SOLVING**

The cooking time for a ham is \(\frac{2}{5}\) of an hour for each pound. What time should you start cooking a ham that weighs 12\(\frac{3}{4}\) pounds so that it is done at 4:45 P.M.?

We should start cooking at 11:39 am so that it is done at 4:45pm

Explanation:

Given the cooking time for a ham is \(\frac{2}{5}\) of an hour for each pound,

The minutes required is \(\frac{2}{5}\) X 60 = 24 minutes,

so 24 minutes for each pound, Now we multiply minutes by pounds

First we write 12\(\frac{3}{4}\) as 12 X 4 + 3 by 4 is \(\frac{51}{4}\) X 24

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 51 X 24 =1224

Step II: Denominators is same 4

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{1224}{4}\), we get

306 as both goes in 4, Now we convert 306 minutes into hours as

\(\frac{306}{60}\) = 5.1 and .1 in an hour is 6 minutes, Therefore

we cook the ham for 5 hours and 6 minutes. As it is done at 4:45 pm means

16 hours,45 minutes – 5 hours 6 minutes = 11 : 39 am,

So we should start cooking at 11:39 am.

Question 67.

**PRECISION**

Complete the Four Square for \(\frac{7}{8}\) × \(\frac{1}{3}\).

Answer is \(\frac{7}{24}\)

Meaning is \(\frac{7}{8}\) of \(\frac{1}{3}\)

Model is

Application : The path around a park is \(\frac{1}{3}\) mile long,

I walk \(\frac{7}{8}\) of the path, How far did I walk?

Explanation:

First we write answer as \(\frac{7}{8}\) × \(\frac{1}{3}\) =

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 7 X 1 = 7

Step II: We multiply denominators as 8 X 3 = 24

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{7}{24}\),

So \(\frac{7}{8}\) × \(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{7}{24}\)

The meaning is \(\frac{7}{8}\) of \(\frac{1}{3}\) and Model is

as shown above the product is purple color overlapping 7 out of 24,

Applying the question as The path around a park is \(\frac{1}{3}\) mile long,

Question 68.

**DIG DEEPER!**

You ask 150 people about their pets. The results show that \(\frac{9}{25}\) of the people own a dog. Of the people who own a dog, \(\frac{1}{6}\) of them also own a cat.

a. What portion of the people own a dog and a cat?

b. How many people own a dog but not a cat? Explain.

a. 54 people, 36% portion of the people own a dog and a cat.

b. 45 people own a dog but not a cat.

Explanation:

Given I ask 150 people about their pets, in that \(\frac{9}{25}\) of the people own a dog means 150 X \(\frac{9}{25}\) = \(\frac{1350}{25}\) = 54 people own a dog. So portion of the people own a dog and cat in 150 are 54 X 100 by 150 = 36%.

Now Of the people who own a dog, \(\frac{1}{6}\) of them also own a cat,

Number of them also own a cat are 54 X \(\frac{1}{6}\) = \(\frac{54}{6}\)= 9

So 9 people owns a cat. We have 54 people owns dog and cat ,

so only own a dog but not cat are 54 – 9 = 45 people own a dog but not a cat.

Question 69.

**NUMBER SENSE**

Use each of the numbers from 1 to 9 exactly once to create three mixed numbers with the greatest possible product. Then use each of the numbers exactly once to create three mixed numbers with the least possible product. Find each product. Explain your reasoning. The fraction portion of each mixed number should be proper.

Greatest possible product is

9\(\frac{1}{2}\) X 8\(\frac{3}{4}\) X 7\(\frac{5}{6}\) = 651\(\frac{7}{48}\)

Least possible product is

1\(\frac{4}{9}\) X 2\(\frac{5}{8}\) X 3\(\frac{6}{7}\) = 14\(\frac{5}{8}\)

Explanation:

First we use the greatest digits for the whole numbers ,then we use

remaining digits to form the greatest(or least) fractional parts later

use the least(or greatest) digits for the whole numbers ,

to calculate greatest possible product as

9\(\frac{1}{2}\) X 8\(\frac{3}{4}\) X 7\(\frac{5}{6}\),

we write mixed fraction as 9\(\frac{1}{2}\) = 9 X 2 + 1 by 2 = \(\frac{19}{2}\),

8\(\frac{3}{4}\) = 8 X 4 + 3 by 4 = \(\frac{35}{4}\), 7\(\frac{5}{6}\) =

7 X 6 + 5 by 6 = \(\frac{47}{6}\),Now we multiply \(\frac{19}{2}\) X \(\frac{35}{4}\) X \(\frac{47}{6}\),

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 19 X 35 X 47 = 31255

Step II: We multiply denominators as 2 X 4 X 6 = 48

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{31255}{48}\),

As numerator is greater than denominator we write in

mixed fraction also as (651 X 48 + 7 by 48), 651\(\frac{7}{48}\),

Now calculate least possible product as

1\(\frac{4}{9}\) X 2\(\frac{5}{8}\) X 3\(\frac{6}{7}\),

we write mixed fraction as 1\(\frac{4}{9}\) = 1 X 9 + 4 by 9 = \(\frac{13}{9}\),

2\(\frac{5}{8}\) = 2 X 8 + 5 by 8 = \(\frac{21}{8}\), 3\(\frac{6}{7}\) =

3 X 7 + 6 by 7 = \(\frac{27}{7}\),Now we multiply \(\frac{13}{9}\) X \(\frac{21}{8}\) X \(\frac{27}{7}\)

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 13 X 21 X 27 = 7371

Step II: we multiply denominators as 9 X 8 X 7 = 504

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{7371}{504}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 63, 63 X 117 = 7371 and 63 X 8 = 504, (117,8) =

\(\frac{117}{8}\),As numerator is greater than denominator we write in

mixed fraction also as (14 X 8 + 5 by 8), 14\(\frac{5}{8}\).

Therefore greatest possible product is 9\(\frac{1}{2}\) X 8\(\frac{3}{4}\) X 7\(\frac{5}{6}\) = 651\(\frac{7}{48}\),least possible product is 1\(\frac{4}{9}\) X 2\(\frac{5}{8}\) X 3\(\frac{6}{7}\) = 14\(\frac{5}{8}\).

**EXPLORATION 2**

**Finding a Pattern**

**Work with a partner. The table shows the division expressions from Exploration 1. Complete each multiplication expression so that it has the same value as the division expression above it. What can you conclude about dividing by fractions?**

Explanation:

Dividing a fraction by another fraction is the same as multiplying the fraction

by the reciprocal (inverse) of the other. We get the reciprocal of a fraction

by interchanging its numerator and denominator.

Yes the pattern found can be applied to division by a whole number as

Step 1: The whole number is converted into the fraction by

applying the denominator value as 1

Step 2: Take the reciprocal of the number

Step 3: Now, multiply the fractional value by a given fraction

Step 4: Simplify the given expression

**Example:** Divide \(\frac{6}{5}\) by 10

Step 1: Convert 10 into a fraction: \(\frac{10}{1}\)

Step 2: Take reciprocal: \(\frac{1}{10}\)

Step 3: Multiply \(\frac{6}{5}\) and \(\frac{1}{10}\)

we get \(\frac{6}{50}\) on simplification as both goes in 2, 2 X 3 = 6 and 2 x 25 = 50,(3,25), So we get \(\frac{3}{25}\).

**2.2 Lesson**

Two numbers whose product is 1 are reciprocals, or multiplicative inverses. To write the reciprocal of a number, ﬁrst write the number as a fraction. Then invert the fraction. So, the reciprocal of a fraction \(\frac{a}{b}\) is \(\frac{b}{a}\), where a ≠ 0 and b ≠ 0.

\(\frac{5}{4}\) = \(\frac{2 X 5}{3 X 4}\) = \(\frac{10}{12}\)

we can further simplify as both goes in 2, 2 X 5 = 10 and 2 X 6 = 12, (5,6),

\(\frac{2}{3}\) ÷ \(\frac{4}{5}\) = \(\frac{5}{6}\).

b. \(\frac{3}{2}\) X \(\frac{4}{5}\) = \(\frac{3 X 4}{2 X 5}\) =\(\frac{12}{10}\) we can further simplify as both goes in 2, 2 X 6 = 12 and 2 X 5 = 10, (6,5), \(\frac{6}{5}\).

5 X \(\frac{5}{4}\), Step I: We multiply the numerators as 5 X 5 = 25

Step II: Denominator is same 4

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as \(\frac{25}{4}\),

As numerator is greater than denominator we write in

mixed fraction also as ( 6 X 4 + 1 by 4), 6\(\frac{1}{4}\) we got whole as 6, therefore

6 full servings of bibimbap I can make and \(\frac{1}{4}\) cup of rice is left over.

Question 21.

A band earns \(\frac{2}{3}\) of their proﬁt from selling concert tickets and \(\frac{1}{5}\) of their proﬁt from selling merchandise. The band earns a proﬁt of $1500 from selling concert tickets. How much proﬁt does the band earn from selling merchandise?

$450 profit does the band earn from selling merchandise

Explanation :

Let us take the amount be x and a band earns \(\frac{2}{3}\) of their proﬁt from selling concert tickets and makes a proﬁt of $1500 from selling concert tickets,

So x X \(\frac{2}{3}\) = $1500, on simplification 2x = 1500 X 3 = 4500,

therefore x = \(\frac{4500}{2}\) = $2250 and \(\frac{1}{5}\) of their proﬁt from selling merchandise means $2250 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) = \(\frac{2250}{5}\)=

$450.

Given baby alligator is \(\frac{3}{4}\) long and baby gecko

is \(\frac{2}{15}\), So baby alligator is more long than the

baby gecko by \(\frac{3}{4}\) ÷ \(\frac{2}{15}\),

we write reciprocal of the fraction \(\frac{2}{15}\) as

\(\frac{15}{2}\) and multiply as \(\frac{3}{4}\) X

\(\frac{15}{2}\) = \(\frac{3 X 15}{4 X 2}\) =

\(\frac{45}{8}\),as numerator is greater than denominator

we can write in mixed fraction as (5 X 8 + 5 by 8) = 5\(\frac{5}{8}\).

Therefore 5\(\frac{5}{8}\) times longer is the baby alligator

than the baby gecko.

orange juice, I drank \(\frac{3}{8}\) portion in it,

So portion of juice I drank is \(\frac{5}{6}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{8}\)

we write reciprocal of fraction \(\frac{3}{8}\) as

\(\frac{8}{3}\) and multiply as \(\frac{2}{5}\) X

\(\frac{8}{3}\) = \(\frac{2 X 8}{5 X 3}\) =

\(\frac{16}{15}\),as numerator is greater than denominator

we can write in mixed fraction as (1 X 15 + 1 by 15) = 1\(\frac{1}{15}\),

So I drank 1\(\frac{1}{15}\) portion of orange juice.

Question 50.

Is <

\(\frac{7}{9}\) ÷ 5 < \(\frac{7}{9}\)

Explanation:

L.H.S is \(\frac{7}{9}\) ÷ 5 and R.H.S is \(\frac{7}{9}\)

when compared both sides we have \(\frac{7}{9}\) and

L.H.S is still 1 divided by 5 so it becomes less than R.H.S 1.

So \(\frac{7}{9}\) ÷ 5 < \(\frac{7}{9}\).

Question 51.

Is =

\(\frac{3}{7}\) ÷ 1 = \(\frac{3}{7}\)

Explanation:

L.H.S is \(\frac{3}{7}\) ÷ 1 and R.H.S is \(\frac{3}{7}\)

when compared both sides we have \(\frac{3}{7}\) and

L.H.S is still 1 divided by 1 so it becomes equal to R.H.S 1.

So \(\frac{3}{7}\) ÷ 1 < \(\frac{3}{7}\).

Question 52.

Is >

8 ÷ \(\frac{3}{4}\) > 8

Explanation:

L.H.S is 8 ÷ \(\frac{3}{4}\) and R.H.S is 8 when compared

both sides we have 8 and L.H.S is still 3 divided by 4 so it becomes

1 ÷ \(\frac{3}{4}\) ,we write reciprocal of \(\frac{3}{4}\) as

\(\frac{4}{3}\) ,1 X \(\frac{4}{3}\) now numerator is

greater than denominator, we get 1 whole plus number in L.H.S,

as L.H.S is greater than R.H.S 1. So 8 ÷ \(\frac{3}{4}\) > 8.

Question 53.

Is >

\(\frac{5}{6}\) ÷ \(\frac{7}{8}\) > \(\frac{5}{6}\)

Explanation:

L.H.S is \(\frac{5}{6}\) ÷ \(\frac{7}{8}\) and

R.H.S is \(\frac{5}{6}\) when compared both sides we

have \(\frac{5}{6}\) and L.H.S is still 7 divided by 8 so it

becomes 1 ÷ \(\frac{7}{8}\) we write reciprocal of

\(\frac{7}{8}\) as \(\frac{8}{7}\)= 1 X \(\frac{8}{7}\)

now numerator is greater than denominator, so we get 1 whole plus

number in L.H.S as L.H.S is greater than R.H.S 1.

So \(\frac{5}{6}\) ÷ \(\frac{7}{8}\) > \(\frac{5}{6}\).

\(\frac{7}{4}\) X \(\frac{10}{9}\)=

\(\frac{3 X 7 X 10}{5 X 4 X 9}\) = \(\frac{210}{180}\)

we can further simplify as both goes in 30,

30 X 7 = 210, 30 X 6 = 180,(7,6) = \(\frac{7}{6}\),therefore

\(\frac{3}{5}\) ÷ \(\frac{4}{7}\) ÷ \(\frac{9}{10}\) =

\(\frac{7}{6}\).

as reciprocal \(\frac{9}{8}\) and multiply with 4 as

4 X \(\frac{9}{8}\) = \(\frac{4 x 9}{8}\) =

\(\frac{36}{8}\) we simplifies as both goes in 4 as 4 X 9 = 36,

4 x 2 = 8, (9,2) = \(\frac{9}{2}\) now we subtract \(\frac{1}{2}\)

as both denominators are 2 we subtract numerators as (9 -1)= 8,

we get \(\frac{8}{2}\) = 4.

Question 58.

= 2

Explanation:

Given expression as \(\frac{3}{4}\) + \(\frac{5}{6}\) ÷

\(\frac{2}{3}\), first we calculate \(\frac{5}{6}\) ÷

multiply as \(\frac{5}{6}\) X \(\frac{3}{2}\) =

\(\frac{5 X 3}{6 X 2}\) =\(\frac{15}{12}\)

we simplify further as both goes in 3, 3 X 5 = 15, 3 X 4 = 12, (5,4)=

\(\frac{5}{4}\) now we add with \(\frac{3}{4}\) ,

\(\frac{3}{4}\) + \(\frac{5}{4}\) as both have same

denominator we add numerators as 3 + 5 = 8 and write as

\(\frac{8}{4}\) as both goes in 4,we get 2.

Therefore \(\frac{3}{4}\) + \(\frac{5}{6}\) ÷

\(\frac{2}{3}\) = 2.

Question 59.

= \(\frac{5}{6}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as \(\frac{7}{8}\) – \(\frac{3}{8}\) ÷ 9 ,

first we calculate \(\frac{3}{8}\) ÷ 9,now we write 9 reciprocal and multiply as \(\frac{3}{8}\) X \(\frac{1}{9}\) = \(\frac{3 X 1}{8 X 9}\) =\(\frac{3}{72}\) we can simplify as both goes in 3,

3 X 1 =3, 3 X 24 =72, (1,24) = \(\frac{1}{24}\) now we subtract from

\(\frac{7}{8}\) – \(\frac{1}{24}\) as we need both

to have same denominators 24 we multiply \(\frac{7}{8}\) X

\(\frac{3}{3}\) = \(\frac{7 X 3}{8 X 3}\) =\(\frac{21}{24}\),

Now \(\frac{21}{24}\) – \(\frac{1}{24}\)

as both have same 24 denominators now we can subtract

numerators as 21 – 1 = 20 and write as \(\frac{20}{24}\)

as both goes in 4, 4 X 5 = 20, 4 X 6 = 24, (5, 6) = \(\frac{5}{6}\),

Therefore \(\frac{7}{8}\) – \(\frac{3}{8}\) ÷ 9 = \(\frac{5}{6}\).

we can simplify as both goes in 2, 2 X 3 =6, 2 X 26 = 52, (3, 26) =

\(\frac{3}{26}\) now \(\frac{9}{16}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{26}\)

we write reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{9}{16}\) X

\(\frac{26}{3}\) = \(\frac{9 x 26}{16 X 3}\) =

\(\frac{234}{48}\) as both can go in 6, 6 X 39 = 234

and 6 X 8 = 48, (39,8) = \(\frac{234}{48}\) = \(\frac{39}{8}\)

X \(\frac{2}{5}\) X \(\frac{7}{6}\)=

\(\frac{3 X 2 X 7}{14 X 5 X 6}\) = \(\frac{42}{420}\)

as both goes in 42, 42 X 1= 42 and 42 X 10 = 420, (1, 10) =

\(\frac{1}{10}\), therefore \(\frac{3}{14}\) X

\(\frac{2}{5}\) ÷ \(\frac{6}{7}\) = \(\frac{1}{10}\).

Question 62.

= \(\frac{2}{3}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as \(\frac{10}{27}\) X (\(\frac{3}{8}\) ÷

\(\frac{5}{24}\)), first we calculate \(\frac{3}{8}\) ÷

\(\frac{5}{24}\), we write \(\frac{5}{24}\) reciprocal

as \(\frac{24}{5}\) and multiply as \(\frac{3}{8}\) X

\(\frac{24}{5}\) = \(\frac{3 X 24}{8 X 5}\) = \(\frac{72}{40}\),

we can simplify as both goes in 8 as 8 x 9 = 72 and

8 X 5 = 40, (9,5) = \(\frac{9}{5}\), now we multiply

\(\frac{10}{27}\) X \(\frac{9}{5}\) =

\(\frac{10 X 9}{27 X 5}\) = \(\frac{90}{135}\)

we can further simplify as both goes in 45, 45 X 2 = 90,

45 x 3 = 135, (2, 3) = \(\frac{2}{3}\).

Question 63.

**NUMBER SENSE**

When is the reciprocal of a fraction a whole number? Explain.

When the simpliﬁed fraction has a 1 in the numerator,

The reciprocal will have a 1 in the denominator. We get a whole number

Explanation:

When the simpliﬁed fraction has a 1 in the numerator,

The reciprocal will have a 1 in the denominator.

Example : If we have numerator as 1 in the simplified fraction like

\(\frac{1}{7}\) then the reciprocal becomes \(\frac{7}{1}\)

so the reciprocal will have a 1 in the denominator and becomes 7,

So we get a whole number.

Question 64.

**MODELING REAL LIFE**

You use \(\frac{1}{8}\) of your battery for every

\(\frac{2}{5}\) of an hour that you video chat.

You use \(\frac{3}{4}\) of your battery video chatting.

How long did you video chat?

I had video chat for 2\(\frac{2}{5}\) hours

Explanation:

If I use \(\frac{1}{8}\) of my battery for every

\(\frac{2}{5}\) of an hour of video chat, then I

use \(\frac{1}{8}\) ÷ \(\frac{2}{5}\) =

\(\frac{1}{8}\) X \(\frac{5}{2}\) =

\(\frac{1 x 5}{2 X 16}\) = \(\frac{5}{16}\) of

my battery per hour of video chat. If I use \(\frac{3}{4}\) of

my battery for video chatting, I used for \(\frac{3}{4}\) ÷

\(\frac{5}{16}\) now \(\frac{3}{4}\) X

\(\frac{16}{5}\)=\(\frac{3 X 16}{4 x 5}\) =

\(\frac{48}{20}\) on further simplification as

both goes in 4 we get 4 X 12 =48, 4 X 5 = 20, (12,5)=

\(\frac{12}{5}\) as numerator is greater

we write as ( 2 X 5 + 2 by 5) = 2\(\frac{2}{5}\) hours.

Therefore I had video chat for 2\(\frac{2}{5}\) hours.

Question 65.

**PROBLEM SOLVING**

The table shows the portions of a family budget that are spent on several expenses.

a. How many times more is the expense for housing than for automobiles?

b. How many times more is the expense for food than for recreation?

c. The expense for automobile fuel is \(\frac{1}{60}\) of the total expenses.

What portion of the automobile expense is spent on fuel?

a. 6 times more is the expense for housing than for automobiles,

b. 17\(\frac{7}{9}\) times more is the expense for

food than for recreation,

c. \(\frac{1}{4}\) portion of the automobile

expense is spent on fuel.

Explanation:

a. Given we have Portions of Budget for housing is \(\frac{2}{5}\)

and for automobiles as \(\frac{1}{15}\), So the expense

for housing than for automobiles is \(\frac{2}{5}\) ÷

\(\frac{1}{15}\) we write \(\frac{1}{15}\)

as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{2}{5}\) X \(\frac{15}{1}\) =

\(\frac{2 X 15}{5 X 1}\) = \(\frac{30}{5}\)

we can simplify as both goes in 5 , 5 X 6 = 30, 5 X 1 = 5,

(6,1),\(\frac{30}{5}\) = 6, therefore 6 times more is

the expense for housing than for automobiles.

b. Given we have Portions of Budget for food is \(\frac{4}{9}\)

and for recreation is \(\frac{1}{40}\), So the expense for

food than for recreation is \(\frac{4}{9}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{40}\)

we write \(\frac{1}{40}\) as reciprocal and multiply

\(\frac{4}{9}\) X \(\frac{40}{1}\) = \(\frac{4 X 40}{9 X 1}\) = \(\frac{160}{9}\) as numerator is greater than

denominator we write as (17 X 9 + 7 by 9) =

17\(\frac{7}{9}\), therefore 17\(\frac{7}{9}\)

times more is the expense for food than for recreation.

c. Given the expense for automobile fuel is \(\frac{1}{60}\)

of the total expenses.

So the portion of the automobile expense spent on fuel is

\(\frac{1}{60}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{15}\)

we write \(\frac{1}{15}\) as reciprocal and

multiply \(\frac{1}{60}\) X \(\frac{15}{1}\) =

\(\frac{1 X 15}{60 X 1}\) = \(\frac{15}{60}\)

we can simplify further as both goes in 15, 15 X 1 = 15, 15 X 4 = 60,

(1, 4) = \(\frac{1}{4}\), therefore \(\frac{1}{4}\)

portion of the automobile expense is spent on fuel.

Question 66.

**CRITICAL THINKING**

A bottle of juice is \(\frac{2}{3}\) full. The bottle contains

\(\frac{4}{5}\) of a cup of juice.

a. Write a division expression that represents the capacity of the bottle.

b. Write a related multiplication expression that represents the

capacity of the bottle.

c. Explain how you can use the diagram to verify the expression in part(b).

d. Find the capacity of the bottle.

a. \(\frac{4}{5}\) ÷ \(\frac{2}{3}\) represents the

capacity of the bottle,

b. \(\frac{4}{5}\) X \(\frac{3}{2}\) is the expression

that represents the capacity of the bottle.

c.

d. The capacity of the bottle is \(\frac{6}{5}\) cups of juice.

Explanation:

a. Given a bottle of juice is \(\frac{2}{3}\) full and bottle

contains \(\frac{4}{5}\) of a cup of juice, So the division

expression that represents the capacity of bottle is

\(\frac{4}{5}\) ÷ \(\frac{2}{3}\) .

b. Given a bottle of juice is \(\frac{2}{3}\) full and

bottle contains \(\frac{4}{5}\) of a cup of juice,

So the multiplication expression that represents the capacity of

bottle is we write \(\frac{2}{3}\) as reciprocal \(\frac{3}{2}\)

and multiply \(\frac{4}{5}\) X \(\frac{3}{2}\).

c. We can use the diagram as \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{4}{5}\)

and each part in blue represents half of \(\frac{4}{5}\) =

\(\frac{1}{2}\) X \(\frac{4}{5}\) =

\(\frac{1 X 4}{2 X 5}\) = \(\frac{4}{10}\) =

\(\frac{2}{5}\) each part so total parts are 3 X \(\frac{2}{5}\) =

\(\frac{6}{5}\), as shown in the figure, Now we solve with part (b)

as the multiplication expression that represents the capacity of bottle is

\(\frac{4}{5}\) X \(\frac{3}{2}\),we solve

\(\frac{4 X 3}{5 X 2}\) = \(\frac{12}{10}\)

we further simplify as both goes in 2, 2 X 6 = 12, 2 X 5 = 10,(6,5),

\(\frac{6}{5}\). So by using the diagram we got same results

as \(\frac{6}{5}\) cups of juice is the total capacity of the

bottle so our expression in part(b) is verified.

d. The capacity of the bottle is \(\frac{4}{5}\) X

\(\frac{3}{2}\),we solve \(\frac{4 X 3}{5 X 2}\) =

\(\frac{12}{10}\) we further simplify as both goes in 2,

2 X 6 = 12, 2 X 5 = 10,(6,5),\(\frac{6}{5}\) cups of juice.

Question 67.

**DIG DEEPER!**

You have 6 pints of glaze. It takes \(\frac{7}{8}\) of a pint to

glaze a bowl and \(\frac{9}{16}\) of a pint to glaze a plate.

a. How many bowls can you completely glaze? How many plates

can you completely glaze?

b. You want to glaze 5 bowls, and then use the rest for plates.

How many plates can you completely glaze? How much glaze will be left over?

c. How many of each object can you completely glaze so

that there is no glaze left over? Explain how you found your answer.

a. 6 bowls I can completely glaze, 10 plates I can completely glaze,

b. 2 plates , \(\frac{1}{2}\) is left over,

c. 3 bowls and 6 plates,

Explanation:

Given 6 pints of glaze, It takes \(\frac{7}{8}\) of a pint to glaze

a bowl so number of bowls I can completely glaze are

6 ÷ \(\frac{7}{8}\) , we write reciprocal of \(\frac{7}{8}\)

and multiply as 6 X \(\frac{8}{7}\) = \(\frac{6 X 8}{1 X 7}\) =

\(\frac{48}{7}\), as numerator is greater we write as

(6 X 7 + 6 by 7) So \(\frac{48}{7}\) =

6\(\frac{6}{7}\)≈ 6, so 6 bowls I can completely glaze.

It takes \(\frac{9}{16}\) of a pint to glaze a plate so

number of bowls I can completely glaze are 6 ÷ \(\frac{9}{16}\) ,

we write reciprocal of \(\frac{9}{16}\) and multiply as

6 X \(\frac{16}{9}\) = \(\frac{6 X 16}{1 X 9}\) =

\(\frac{96}{9}\) as numerator is greater we write as

( 10 X 9 + 6 by 9) = 10\(\frac{6}{9}\) ≈ 10, so 10 plates

I can completely glaze.

b. So to glaze 5 bowls from 6 pints of glaze it will take,

as we know for 1 bowl it is \(\frac{7}{8}\) of a pint to glaze,

for 5 bowls it is 5 X \(\frac{7}{8}\) = \(\frac{5 X 7}{8}\) =

\(\frac{35}{8}\) pints to glaze so we use from 6 pints of glaze,

Question 68.

**REASONING**

A water tank is \(\frac{1}{8}\) full. The tank is

\(\frac{3}{4}\) full when 42 gallons of water are added to the tank.

a. How much water can the tank hold?

b. How much water was originally in the tank?

c. How much water is in the tank when it is \(\frac{1}{2}\) full?

a. The tank can hold 67.2 gallons of water,

b. 8.4 gallons of water was originally in the tank,

c. 33.6 gallons of water is in the tank when it is \(\frac{1}{2}\) full.

Explanation:

Given a water tank is \(\frac{1}{8}\) full. The tank is

\(\frac{3}{4}\) full when 42 gallons of water are

added to the tank. Since the tank started at \(\frac{1}{8}\)

full and reached \(\frac{3}{4}\) full , To find 1 tank full we

have the difference is \(\frac{3}{4}\) – \(\frac{1}{8}\) =

42 gallons, So first we make denominators common we

multiply and divide by 2 to \(\frac{3}{4}\) =

\(\frac{6}{8}\) now we subtract as

\(\frac{6}{8}\) – \(\frac{1}{8}\) = 42;

as denominators are same we minus numerators (6-1)= 5

making \(\frac{5}{8}\) = 42,therefore 1 tank full is

42 X \(\frac{8}{5}\) = \(\frac{336}{8}\) = 67.2 gallons of water.

b. Initially we had \(\frac{1}{8}\) full of water

means we had 67.2 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) = 8.4 gallons

of water was originally in the tank,

c. Water in the tank when it is \(\frac{1}{2}\) full is

67.2 X \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{67.2}{2}\) =

33.6 gallons of water is in the tank when it is \(\frac{1}{2}\) full.

I gave four and one-halves portion to my friends,

How many four and one halves portions are there in one and half bag.

There are \(\frac{1}{3}\) – four and one-halves are in one and one-half

Explanation:

a. Three-fourths in four and one-half are 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷

\(\frac{3}{4}\) = 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) = (4 X 2 + 1 by 2)

= \(\frac{9}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{4}\) =

now we write \(\frac{3}{4}\) as reciprocal and

multiply \(\frac{9}{2}\) X \(\frac{4}{3}\) =

\(\frac{9 X 4}{2 X 3}\) = \(\frac{36}{6}\)

as both goes in 6 we get 6 X 6 = 36 and 6 X 1= 6,(6,1),

so \(\frac{36}{6}\) = 6, there are six,

three-fourths in four and one-half.

b. Three-eighths in two and one-fourth are 2\(\frac{1}{4}\)

÷ \(\frac{3}{8}\) = 2\(\frac{1}{4}\) =

(2 X 4 + 1 by 4) = \(\frac{9}{4}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{8}\) =

now we write \(\frac{3}{8}\) as reciprocal and multiply

\(\frac{9}{4}\) X \(\frac{8}{3}\) =

\(\frac{9 X 8}{4 X 3}\) = \(\frac{72}{12}\)

first we write \(\frac{1}{2}\) as (1 x 2 + 1 by 2) =

\(\frac{3}{2}\) now we write reciprocal as \(\frac{2}{3}\)

and multiply with 6 as 6 X \(\frac{2}{3}\) =

\(\frac{6 X 2}{1 X 3}\) =\(\frac{12}{3}\) = 4,

there are 4, one and one-halves are in six.

\(\frac{7}{6}\) , First we write mixed fraction in

fraction as (3 X 3 + 1 by 3) = \(\frac{10}{3}\) now we

write reciprocal and multiply as \(\frac{10}{3}\) X

\(\frac{6}{7}\) =\(\frac{10 X 6}{3 X 7}\) =

\(\frac{60}{21}\) as both goes in 3,3 X 20 = 60, 3 X 7 = 21,

(20,7) = \(\frac{20}{7}\) as numerator is greater

we can write as (2 X 7 + 6 by 7)=2 \(\frac{6}{7}\)

there are 2 \(\frac{6}{7}\)– seven-sixths are

in three and one-third .

e. One and one-ﬁfths in ﬁve are 5 ÷1\(\frac{1}{5}\)

first we write mixed fraction as (1 X 5 +1 by 5) =

\(\frac{6}{5}\) now we write reciprocal and

multiply 5 X \(\frac{5}{6}\) =

\(\frac{5 X 5}{6}\) =\(\frac{25}{6}\)

as numerator is greater we can write as (4 X 6 + 1 by 6) =

4\(\frac{1}{6}\) there are 4\(\frac{1}{6}\) –

one and one-ﬁfths in ﬁve.

f. Three and one-halves are in two and one-half are

2\(\frac{1}{2}\)÷ 3\(\frac{1}{2}\)

first we write 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) as (2 X 2 + 1 by 2) =

\(\frac{5}{2}\) and 3\(\frac{1}{2}\)

as (3 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{7}{2}\).

Now \(\frac{5}{2}\) ÷\(\frac{7}{2}\),

We write reciprocal and multiply as \(\frac{5}{2}\) X

\(\frac{2}{7}\) = \(\frac{5 X 2}{2 X 7}\) =

\(\frac{5}{7}\) there are \(\frac{5}{7}\)

– three and one-halves are in two and one-half.

g. Four and one-halves are in one and one-half are

1\(\frac{1}{2}\)÷ 4\(\frac{1}{2}\)

first we write 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) as (1 X 2 + 1 by 2) =

\(\frac{3}{2}\) and 4\(\frac{1}{2}\)

as (4 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{9}{2}\).

6 X 3= 18, (1,3) = \(\frac{1}{3}\) there are

\(\frac{1}{3}\) – four and one-halves are in one and one-half.

**Key Idea**

**Dividing Mixed Numbers**

Write each mixed number as an improper fraction.

Then divide as you would with proper fractions.

**Try It**

**Divide. Write the answer in simplest form.**

= 11

Explanation:

Given expression as 3\(\frac{2}{3}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{3}\),

first we write mixed fraction as (3 X 3 + 2 by 3) = \(\frac{11}{3}\) ÷

\(\frac{1}{3}\), we write \(\frac{1}{3}\) reciprocal

as \(\frac{3}{1}\) and multiply as \(\frac{11}{3}\) X

\(\frac{3}{1}\) = \(\frac{11 X 3}{3 X 1}\) =

\(\frac{11}{1}\) = 11.

Question 2.

= \(\frac{15}{7}\) or 2\(\frac{1}{7}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as 1\(\frac{3}{7}\) ÷ \(\frac{2}{3}\),

first we write mixed fraction as (1 X 7 + 3 by 7) = \(\frac{10}{7}\) ÷

\(\frac{2}{3}\), we write \(\frac{2}{3}\) reciprocal

as \(\frac{3}{2}\) and multiply as \(\frac{10}{7}\) X

\(\frac{3}{2}\) = \(\frac{10 X 3}{7 X 2}\) =

\(\frac{30}{14}\), as both goes in 2, 2 X 15 = 30, 2 X 7 = 14,

(15,7) = \(\frac{15}{7}\) as numerator is greater

we write as (2 X 7 + 1 by 7), so \(\frac{15}{7}\)= 2\(\frac{1}{7}\).

Question 3.

= \(\frac{26}{9}\) or 2\(\frac{8}{9}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as 2\(\frac{1}{6}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{4}\),

first we write mixed fraction as (2 X 6 + 1 by 6) = \(\frac{13}{6}\) ÷

\(\frac{3}{4}\), we write \(\frac{3}{4}\) reciprocal

as \(\frac{4}{3}\) and multiply as \(\frac{13}{6}\) X

\(\frac{4}{3}\) = \(\frac{13 X 4}{6 X 3}\) =

\(\frac{52}{18}\), as both goes in 2, 2 X 26 = 52,

2 X 9 = 18, (26,9) = \(\frac{26}{9}\) as numerator is

greater we write as (2 X 9 + 8 by 9),

so \(\frac{26}{9}\)= 2\(\frac{8}{9}\).

Question 4.

= \(\frac{13}{4}\) or 3\(\frac{1}{4}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as 6\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 2, first

we write mixed fraction as (6 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{13}{2}\) ÷ 2,

we write 2 reciprocal as \(\frac{1}{2}\) and multiply as

\(\frac{13}{2}\) X \(\frac{1}{2}\) =

\(\frac{13 X 1}{2 X 2}\) = \(\frac{13}{4}\),

as numerator is greater we write as (3 X 4 + 1 by 4),

so \(\frac{13}{4}\)= 3\(\frac{1}{4}\).

Question 5.

= 4

Explanation:

Given expressions as 10\(\frac{2}{3}\) ÷ 2\(\frac{2}{3}\),

First we write mixed fractions into fractions as 10\(\frac{2}{3}\)

= (10 X 3 + 2 by 3) = \(\frac{32}{3}\) and 2\(\frac{2}{3}\)

= (2 X 3 + 2 by 3) = \(\frac{8}{3}\),

Now we write as we write \(\frac{32}{3}\) ÷

\(\frac{8}{3}\)now reciprocal of the fraction \(\frac{8}{3}\)

as \(\frac{3}{8}\) and multiply as \(\frac{32}{3}\) X

\(\frac{3}{8}\) = \(\frac{32 X 3}{3 X 8}\) =

\(\frac{96}{24}\), we can further simplify as both goes in 24,

24 X 4 = 96 and 24 X 1 = 24, (4,1)= 4.Therefore 10\(\frac{2}{3}\) ÷

2\(\frac{2}{3}\) = 4.

Question 6.

= \(\frac{11}{2}\) or 5\(\frac{1}{2}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as 8\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{1}{2}\),

First we write mixed fractions into fractions as 8\(\frac{1}{4}\) =

(8 X 4 + 1 by 4) = \(\frac{33}{4}\) and 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) =

(1 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{3}{2}\), Now we write

\(\frac{33}{4}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{2}\) now reciprocal of

the fraction \(\frac{3}{2}\) as \(\frac{2}{3}\) and

multiply as \(\frac{33}{4}\) X \(\frac{2}{3}\) =

\(\frac{33 X 2}{4 X 3}\) = \(\frac{66}{12}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 6, 6 X 11 = 66 and 6 X 2 = 12,

(11,2)=\(\frac{11}{2}\) as numerator is greater

we write as (5 X 2 + 1 by 2) = 5\(\frac{1}{2}\).

Therefore 8\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) =

\(\frac{11}{2}\) or 5\(\frac{1}{2}\).

Question 7.

= \(\frac{12}{7}\) or 1\(\frac{5}{7}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as 3 ÷ 1\(\frac{1}{2}\),First we write

mixed fractions into fractions as 1\(\frac{3}{4}\) =

(1 x 4 + 3 by 4) = \(\frac{7}{4}\) now 3 ÷ \(\frac{7}{4}\)

now reciprocal of the fraction \(\frac{7}{4}\) as

\(\frac{4}{7}\) and multiply as 3 X \(\frac{4}{7}\) =

\(\frac{3 X 4}{7}\) = \(\frac{12}{7}\)

as numerator is greater we write as (1 X 7 + 5 by 7) = 1\(\frac{5}{7}\).

Therefore 3 ÷ 1\(\frac{3}{4}\) = \(\frac{12}{7}\) or 1\(\frac{5}{7}\).

Question 8.

= \(\frac{3}{10}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as \(\frac{3}{4}\) ÷ 2\(\frac{1}{2}\),

First we write mixed fractions into fractions as 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) =

(2 x 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{5}{2}\) now \(\frac{3}{4}\) ÷

\(\frac{5}{2}\) now reciprocal of the fraction

\(\frac{5}{2}\) as \(\frac{2}{5}\) and multiply as

\(\frac{3}{4}\) X \(\frac{2}{5}\) =

\(\frac{3 X 2}{4 X 5}\) = \(\frac{6}{20}\)

as both goes in 2, 2 X 3 = 6, 2 X 10= 20, (3,10)= \(\frac{3}{10}\).

Question 9.

= \(\frac{65}{8}\) = 8\(\frac{1}{8}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as (1\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{6}\)) –

\(\frac{7}{8}\) ,First we write mixed fractions into fractions as

1\(\frac{1}{2}\) = (1 x 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{3}{2}\)

now \(\frac{3}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{6}\) now reciprocal

of the fraction \(\frac{1}{6}\) as 6 and multiply as

\(\frac{3}{2}\) X 6 = \(\frac{3 X 6}{2 X 1}\) =

\(\frac{18}{2}\) as both goes in 2, 2 X 9 = 18, 2 X 1= 2, (9,1)=9.

Now 9 – \(\frac{7}{8}\) =(9 X 8 – 7 by 8) = \(\frac{65}{8}\)

as numerator is greater we write as (8 X 8 + 1 by 8) = \(\frac{65}{8}\) =

8\(\frac{1}{8}\). Therefore (1\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{6}\)) –

\(\frac{7}{8}\) = \(\frac{65}{8}\) = 8\(\frac{1}{8}\).

Question 10.

= \(\frac{44}{9}\) = 4\(\frac{8}{9}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as (3\(\frac{1}{3}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{6}\)) +

\(\frac{8}{9}\) ,First we write mixed fractions into fractions as

3\(\frac{1}{3}\) = (3 x 3 + 1 by 3) = \(\frac{10}{3}\)

now \(\frac{10}{3}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{6}\) now reciprocal

of the fraction \(\frac{5}{6}\) as \(\frac{6}{5}\) and multiply as

\(\frac{10}{3}\) X \(\frac{6}{5}\) = \(\frac{10 X 6}{3 X 5}\) =

\(\frac{60}{15}\) as both goes in 15, 15 X 4 = 60, 15 X 1= 15, (4,1)=4.

Now 4 + \(\frac{8}{9}\) =(4 X 9 + 8 by 9) = \(\frac{44}{9}\)

as numerator is greater we write as (4 X 9 + 8 by 9) = \(\frac{44}{9}\) =

4\(\frac{8}{9}\). Therefore (3\(\frac{1}{3}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{6}\)) +

\(\frac{8}{9}\) = \(\frac{44}{9}\) = 4\(\frac{8}{9}\).

Question 11.

= \(\frac{8}{5}\) = 1\(\frac{3}{5}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as \(\frac{2}{5}\) + 2\(\frac{4}{5}\) ÷ 2,

First we write mixed fractions into fractions as

2\(\frac{4}{5}\) = (2 x 5 + 4 by 5) = \(\frac{14}{5}\)

now \(\frac{2}{5}\) + \(\frac{14}{5}\) as denominators

are same we add numerators as 2 + 14 and write as \(\frac{16}{5}\),

now we divide with 2, \(\frac{16}{5}\) ÷ 2, we write 2 as

reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{16}{5}\) X \(\frac{1}{2}\) =

\(\frac{16 X 1}{5 X 2}\) = \(\frac{16}{10}\) as both goes

in 2, 2 x 8 = 16, 2 X 5 = 10, (8,5) = \(\frac{8}{5}\) as numerator is

greater we write as (1 X 5 + 3 by 5) = 1\(\frac{3}{5}\) ,Therefore

\(\frac{2}{5}\) + 2\(\frac{4}{5}\) ÷ 2 =

\(\frac{8}{5}\) = 1\(\frac{3}{5}\) .

Question 12.

= \(\frac{1}{3}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as \(\frac{2}{3}\) – (1\(\frac{4}{7}\) ÷ 4\(\frac{5}{7})\),First we write mixed fractions into fractions as

1\(\frac{4}{7}\) = (1 X 7 + 4 by 7) = \(\frac{11}{7}\) and

4\(\frac{5}{7}\) = (4 X 7 + 5 by 7) = \(\frac{33}{7}\),

Now first we divide \(\frac{11}{7}\) ÷ \(\frac{33}{7}\) =

we write \(\frac{33}{7}\) as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{7}{33}\) ,

\(\frac{11}{7}\) X \(\frac{7}{33}\) = \(\frac{11 X 7}{7 X 33}\) =

\(\frac{77}{231}\) as both goes in 77, 77 X 1= 77, 77 X 3 = 231,(1,3),

\(\frac{1}{3}\) now we subtract from \(\frac{2}{3}\) – \(\frac{1}{3}\)

as denominators are same we subtract from numerators as

(2-1) we get \(\frac{1}{3}\), Therefore \(\frac{2}{3}\) – (1\(\frac{4}{7}\) ÷ 4\(\frac{5}{7})\) = \(\frac{1}{3}\).

Question 13.

= \(\frac{224}{28}\) = 8.

Explanation:

Given expressions as 4\(\frac{4}{7}\) ÷ \(\frac{4}{7}\),

First we write mixed fractions into fractions 4\(\frac{4}{7}\) as

(4 X 7 + 4 by 7) = \(\frac{32}{7}\), Now \(\frac{4}{7}\) we

write as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{7}{4}\) as

\(\frac{32}{7}\) X \(\frac{7}{4}\) = \(\frac{32 X 7}{7 X 4}\)=

\(\frac{224}{28}\) as both goes in 28, 28 X 8 = 224,

28 X 1 = 28, (8,1) = 8, therefore 4\(\frac{4}{7}\) ÷ \(\frac{4}{7}\)=

\(\frac{224}{28}\) = 8.

Question 14.

= \(\frac{2}{21}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as \(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 5\(\frac{1}{4}\),

First we write mixed fractions into fractions 5\(\frac{1}{4}\) as

(5 X 4 + 1 by 4) = \(\frac{21}{4}\) we write as reciprocal and

multiply \(\frac{4}{21}\) as \(\frac{1}{2}\) X \(\frac{4}{21}\) =

\(\frac{1 X 4}{2 X 21}\) = \(\frac{4}{42}\) as both goes in

2, 2 X 2 = 4, 2 X 21 = 42, (2, 21) = \(\frac{2}{21}\), therefore

\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 5\(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{2}{21}\).

Question 15.

= \(\frac{19}{4}\) = 4\(\frac{3}{4}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as \(\frac{3}{4}\) + (6\(\frac{2}{5}\) ÷

1\(\frac{3}{5}\)), First we write mixed fractions into fractions as

6\(\frac{2}{5}\) = (6 X 5 + 2 by 5) = \(\frac{32}{5}\) and

1\(\frac{3}{5}\) = (1 X 5 + 3 by 5) = \(\frac{8}{5}\),

we write reciprocal \(\frac{5}{8}\) and multiply \(\frac{32}{5}\) X \(\frac{5}{8}\) = \(\frac{32 X 5}{5 X 8}\) = \(\frac{160}{40}\)

as both goes in 40 as 40 X 4 = 160, 40 X 1 = 40, (4,1), \(\frac{160}{40}\) =4,

Now \(\frac{3}{4}\) + 4 = ( 3 + 4 X 4 by 4 ) = \(\frac{19}{4}\),

as numerator is greater we write as ( 4 X 4 + 3 by 4) = 4\(\frac{3}{4}\),

therefore \(\frac{3}{4}\) + (6\(\frac{2}{5}\) ÷

1\(\frac{3}{5}\)) = \(\frac{19}{4}\) = 4\(\frac{3}{4}\).

Question 16.

**NUMBER SENSE**

Is 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) the same as 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ 2\(\frac{1}{2}\)? Use models to justify your answer.

No,Is 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) is not the same as

1\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ 2\(\frac{1}{2}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) and

1\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) first we write mixed fractions,

into fractions 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) = (2 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{5}{2}\),

1\(\frac{1}{4}\) = (1 X 4 + 1 by 4) = \(\frac{5}{4}\), now

write as reciprocal as \(\frac{4}{5}\), now we multiply as

\(\frac{5}{2}\) X \(\frac{4}{5}\) = \(\frac{5 x 4}{2 X 5}\) =

\(\frac{20}{10}\) as both goes in 10, 10 X 2 = 20, 10 X 1= 10,(2,1)=2.

Now 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) we write mixed fractions,

into fractions 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) = (1 X 4 + 1 by 4) = \(\frac{5}{4}\),

2\(\frac{1}{2}\) = (2 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{5}{2}\), now

write as reciprocal as \(\frac{2}{5}\), now we multiply as

\(\frac{5}{4}\) X \(\frac{2}{5}\) = \(\frac{5 x 2}{4 X 5}\) =

\(\frac{10}{20}\) = as both goes in 10, 10 X 1 = 10, 10 X 2 = 20, (1,2) =

\(\frac{1}{2}\), therefore 2 ≠ \(\frac{1}{2}\) So no,

2\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) is not the same as

1\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ 2\(\frac{1}{2}\).

Question 17.

**DIFFERENT WORDS, SAME QUESTION**

Which is different? Find “both” answers.

d. Different one is What is \(\frac{1}{8}\) of 5 \(\frac{1}{2}\) =

5\(\frac{1}{2}\) multiplied by \(\frac{1}{8}\).

All 3 results are in whole only \(\frac{1}{8}\) of 5 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

is in fraction. So it is different from other 3 ones.

Explanation:

We calculate first 5\(\frac{1}{2}\) = (5 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{11}{2}\)

a. As what is 5\(\frac{1}{2}\) divided by \(\frac{1}{8}\) means

5\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{8}\),

\(\frac{11}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{8}\),

we write reciprocal and multiply as

\(\frac{11}{2}\) X 8 = \(\frac{88}{2}\) = 44.

b. What is quotient of 5\(\frac{1}{2}\) and \(\frac{1}{8}\) means

5\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{8}\),

\(\frac{11}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{8}\),

we write reciprocal and multiply as

\(\frac{11}{2}\) X 8 = \(\frac{88}{2}\) = 44.

c. What is 5\(\frac{1}{2}\) times of 8 means

5\(\frac{1}{2}\) X 8= \(\frac{88}{2}\) = 44.

d. What is \(\frac{1}{8}\) of 5\(\frac{1}{2}\) means

5\(\frac{1}{2}\) X \(\frac{1}{8}\),

\(\frac{11}{2}\) X \(\frac{1}{8}\) = \(\frac{11}{16}\)=0.6875,

So only different one is d. What is \(\frac{1}{8}\) of 5 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

value is different from the other 3.

for all 45 people on the team to ﬁll their water bottles.

Explanation:

Given a water cooler contains 160 cups of water, During practice,

each person on a team ﬁlls a water bottle with 3\(\frac{1}{3}\) cups

of water from the cooler. To find is there enough water for all

45 people on the team to ﬁll their water bottles we calculate as

45 persons X 3\(\frac{1}{3}\) =

first we write mixed fraction as fraction 3\(\frac{1}{3}\) =

(3 X 3 +1 by 3) = \(\frac{10}{3}\) now we multiply as

45 X \(\frac{10}{3}\) = \(\frac{450}{3}\) as both

goes in 3, 3 X 150 = 450,3 x 1= 3, (150,1) so \(\frac{450}{3}\)= 150 cups

of water is required for 45 people and cooler contains 160 cups of water,

therefore we have sufficient enough water for all 45 people on the team to

ﬁll their water bottles.

Explanation:

Given a cyclist is 7\(\frac{3}{4}\) kilometers from the ﬁnish line of a race,

The cyclist rides at a rate of 25\(\frac{5}{6}\) kilometers per hour,

means we write as 25\(\frac{5}{6}\) ÷ 7\(\frac{3}{4}\)

first we write mixed fractions in fractions as 25\(\frac{5}{6}\) =

(25 X 6 + 5 by 6) = \(\frac{155}{6}\) now 7\(\frac{3}{4}\) =

(7 X 4 + 3 by 4) = \(\frac{31}{4}\) now reciprocal of \(\frac{31}{4}\) =

\(\frac{4}{31}\) and multiply as \(\frac{155}{6}\) X \(\frac{4}{31}\)=

\(\frac{155 X 4}{6 X 31}\) = \(\frac{620}{186}\) kilometers

in an hour. Now we convert into minutes as \(\frac{186 X 60}{620}\) =

\(\frac{11160}{620}\) as both goes in 620, 620 X 18 = 11160, 620 X 1 = 620,

\(\frac{11160}{620}\) = 18 minutes.Therefore it will take

18 minutes for the cyclist to ﬁnish the race.

\(\frac{19}{5}\) X \(\frac{5}{2}\) = \(\frac{19 X 5}{5 X 2}\)=

\(\frac{95}{10}\) as both goes in 5, 5 X 19 = 95,

5 X 2 = 10, (19, 2) = \(\frac{19}{2}\) as numerator is greater

we write as (9 X 2 + 1 by 2)= 9\(\frac{1}{2}\).

\(\frac{60}{198}\) as both goes in 6, 6 X 10 = 60,

6 X 33 = 198, (10, 33) = \(\frac{10}{33}\), therefore

we can further simplify as both goes in 21, 21 X 16 = 336 and 21 X 15 = 315,

(16,15)=\(\frac{16}{15}\) as numerator is greater

we write as (1 X 15 + 1 by 15) = 1\(\frac{1}{15}\), therefore

6\(\frac{2}{9}\) ÷ 5\(\frac{5}{9}\) = \(\frac{16}{15}\) or 1\(\frac{1}{15}\).

Explanation:

Given expressions are 3\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{2}{3}\),

First we write mixed fractions into fractions as 3\(\frac{1}{2}\) =

(3 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{7}{2}\) and 1\(\frac{2}{3}\) =

(1 X 3 + 2 by 3) = \(\frac{5}{3}\), Now we write

\(\frac{7}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{3}\) now reciprocal of

multiply as \(\frac{7}{2}\) X \(\frac{3}{5}\) =

\(\frac{7 X 3}{2 X 5}\) = \(\frac{21}{10}\),

as numerator is greater we write as (2 X 10 + 1 by 10) = 2\(\frac{1}{10}\), therefore

Explanation:

Given expression as (3 ÷ 1\(\frac{1}{5}\))+ \(\frac{1}{2}\)

First we write mixed fraction into fraction as 1\(\frac{1}{5}\) =

(1 X 5 + 1 by 5) = \(\frac{6}{5}\) Now we calculate first

3 ÷ \(\frac{6}{5}\) now reciprocal of

the fraction \(\frac{6}{5}\) as \(\frac{5}{6}\) and

multiply as 3 X \(\frac{5}{6}\) =

\(\frac{3 X 5}{1 X 6}\) = \(\frac{15}{6}\),as both goes in 3,

3 X 5 = 15 and 3 X 2 = 6, (5,2)= \(\frac{5}{2}\), now we add with

\(\frac{1}{2}\), \(\frac{5}{2}\) + \(\frac{1}{2}\) as

both have same denominators we add numerators as (5 + 1) and write as

\(\frac{6}{2}\) now as both goes in 2, 2 X 3 = 6, 2 X 1 = 2, (3,1) = 3,

therefore (3 ÷ 1\(\frac{1}{5}\))+ \(\frac{1}{2}\) = 3.

Question 34.

= \(\frac{5}{3}\) = 1\(\frac{2}{3}\)

Given expression as (4\(\frac{2}{3}\) – 1\(\frac{1}{3}\)) ÷ 2

First we write mixed fractions into fractions as 4\(\frac{2}{3}\) =

(4 X 3 + 2 by 3) = \(\frac{14}{3}\) and 1\(\frac{1}{3}\) =

(1 X 3 + 1 by 3) = \(\frac{4}{3}\), Now first we calculate

\(\frac{14}{3}\) – \(\frac{4}{3}\) as denominators are same

numerators become (14 – 4 ) = 10, we get \(\frac{10}{3}\)

now \(\frac{10}{3}\) ÷ 2 we write 2

as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{10}{3}\) X \(\frac{1}{2}\) =

\(\frac{10 X 1}{3 X 2}\) = \(\frac{10}{6}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 2, 2 X 5 = 10 and 2 X 3 = 6,

(5,3)=\(\frac{5}{3}\) as numerator is greater

we write as (1 X 3 + 2 by 3) = 1\(\frac{2}{3}\), therefore

(4\(\frac{2}{3}\) – 1\(\frac{1}{3}\)) ÷ 2 = \(\frac{5}{3}\) or 1\(\frac{2}{3}\).

Question 35.

= 3

Explanation

(2 X 6 + 1 by 6) = \(\frac{13}{6}\),Now first we calculate

\(\frac{13}{6}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{6}\) we write \(\frac{5}{6}\)

as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{13}{6}\) X \(\frac{6}{5}\) =

\(\frac{13 X 6}{6 X 5}\) = \(\frac{78}{30}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 6, 6 X 13 = 78 and 6 X 5 = 30,

(13,5)=\(\frac{13}{5}\), Now we add as

\(\frac{2}{5}\) + \(\frac{13}{5}\) as both have same denominators we add numerators and write as \(\frac{15}{5}\), now as both goes in 5,

5 X 3= 15, 5 X 1 = 5, (3, 1) = 3, therefore \(\frac{2}{5}\) +

(2\(\frac{1}{6}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{6}\)) = 3.

Question 36.

= \(\frac{4}{3}\) or 1\(\frac{1}{3}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as (5\(\frac{5}{6}\) ÷ 3\(\frac{3}{4}\)) – \(\frac{2}{9}\),First we write mixed fractions into fractions as 5\(\frac{5}{6}\) =

(5 X 6 + 5 by 6) = \(\frac{35}{6}\) and 3\(\frac{3}{4}\)=

(3 X 4 + 3 by 4) = \(\frac{15}{4}\). Now first we calculate

\(\frac{35}{6}\) ÷ \(\frac{15}{4}\) we write \(\frac{15}{4}\)

as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{35}{6}\) X \(\frac{4}{15}\) =

\(\frac{35 X 4}{6 X 15}\) = \(\frac{140}{90}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 10, 10 X 14 = 140 and 10 X 9 = 90,

(14,9)=\(\frac{14}{9}\), Now we subtract as \(\frac{14}{9}\) – \(\frac{2}{9}\) as both have same denominators are same we subtract numerators and write as

\(\frac{12}{9}\) now as both goes in 3,

3 X 4= 12, 3 X 3 = 9, (4, 3) = \(\frac{4}{3}\) as numerator is greater

we write as (1 X 3 + 1 by 3), Therefore (5\(\frac{5}{6}\) ÷ 3\(\frac{3}{4}\)) – \(\frac{2}{9}\) = \(\frac{4}{3}\) or 1\(\frac{1}{3}\).

Question 37.

= \(\frac{165}{26}\) or 6\(\frac{9}{26}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as 6\(\frac{1}{2}\) – (\(\frac{7}{8}\) ÷ 5\(\frac{11}{16}\)), First we write mixed fraction into fraction as 5\(\frac{11}{16}\) =

(5 X 16 + 11 by 16) = \(\frac{91}{16}\), Now first we calculate

\(\frac{7}{8}\) ÷ \(\frac{91}{16}\), we write \(\frac{91}{16}\)

as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{7}{8}\) X \(\frac{16}{91}\) =

\(\frac{7 X 16}{8 X 91}\) = \(\frac{112}{728}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 28, 28 X 4 = 112 and 28 X 26 = 728,

(4,26)=\(\frac{4}{26}\), We write mixed fraction into fraction of 6\(\frac{1}{2}\) as (6 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{13}{2}\) Now we subtract as \(\frac{13}{2}\) – \(\frac{4}{26}\) as both should have same denominator we multiply numerator and denominator by 13 for \(\frac{13}{2}\) X \(\frac{13}{13}\) =

\(\frac{13 X 13}{2 X 13}\) = \(\frac{169}{26}\) now we subtract as

\(\frac{169}{26}\) – \(\frac{4}{26}\)as denominators are same we

subtract numerators (169 – 4 ) and write as \(\frac{165}{26}\),

as numerator is greater we write as (6 X 26 + 9 by 26) = 6\(\frac{9}{26}\).

Therefore 6\(\frac{1}{2}\) – (\(\frac{7}{8}\) ÷ 5\(\frac{11}{16}\)) =

\(\frac{165}{26}\) or 6\(\frac{9}{26}\).

5 + \(\frac{10}{3}\) as (5 X 3 +10 by 3) = \(\frac{25}{3}\),

We write mixed fraction into fraction of 9\(\frac{1}{6}\)

as (9 X 6 + 1 by 6) = \(\frac{55}{6}\) now we divide with \(\frac{25}{3}\),

now we write as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{55}{6}\) X \(\frac{3}{25}\) =

\(\frac{55 X 3}{6 X 25}\) = \(\frac{165}{150}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 15, 15 X 11 = 165 and 15 X 10 = 150,

(11,10)=\(\frac{11}{10}\), as numerator is greater we write as

(1 X 10 + 1 by 10) = 1\(\frac{1}{10}\). Therefore 9\(\frac{1}{6}\) ÷

(5 + 3\(\frac{1}{3}\)) = \(\frac{11}{10}\) or 1\(\frac{1}{

10}\).

Question 39.

= \(\frac{66}{5}\) or 13\(\frac{1}{5}\)

Given expression as 3\(\frac{3}{5}\) + (4\(\frac{4}{15}\) ÷

\(\frac{4}{9}\)), First we write mixed fraction into fraction

for 4\(\frac{4}{15}\) as

(4 X 15 + 4 by 15) = \(\frac{64}{15}\), Now first we calculate

\(\frac{64}{15}\) ÷ \(\frac{4}{9}\)now we write as reciprocal

and multiply \(\frac{64}{15}\) X \(\frac{9}{4}\) =

\(\frac{64 X 9}{15 X 4}\) = \(\frac{576}{60}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 12, 12 X 48 = 576 and 12 X 5 = 60,

(48, 5)=\(\frac{48}{5}\), we write mixed fraction into fraction for

3\(\frac{3}{5}\) as (3 X 5 + 3 by 5) = \(\frac{18}{5}\)

Now \(\frac{18}{5}\) + \(\frac{48}{5}\) as both have

same denominators we add numerators and write as \(\frac{66}{5}\)

as numerator is greater we write as (13 X 5 + 1 by 5) = 13\(\frac{1}{5}\).

Therefore 3\(\frac{3}{5}\) + (4\(\frac{4}{15}\) ÷ \(\frac{4}{9}\)) =

\(\frac{66}{5}\) or 13\(\frac{1}{5}\).

Question 40.

= \(\frac{7}{54}\)

Given expression as (\(\frac{3}{5}\) X \(\frac{7}{12}\)) ÷

2\(\frac{7}{10}\), First we multiply \(\frac{3}{5}\) X

\(\frac{7}{12}\) = \(\frac{3 X 7}{5 X 12}\) = \(\frac{21}{60}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 3, 3 X 7 = 21 and 3 X 20 = 60,

(7, 20)=\(\frac{7}{20}\), Now we have \(\frac{7}{20}\) ÷ 2\(\frac{7}{10}\), we write mixed fraction into fraction for 2\(\frac{7}{10}\) as

(2 X 10 + 7 by 10) = \(\frac{27}{10}\) now we write reciprocal

and multiply \(\frac{7}{20}\) X \(\frac{10}{27}\) =

\(\frac{7 X 10}{20 X 27}\) = \(\frac{70}{540}\) as both goes in 10,

10 X 7 = 70 and 10 X 54 = 540, (7,54) = \(\frac{7}{54}\), Therefore

(\(\frac{3}{5}\) X \(\frac{7}{12}\)) ÷ 2\(\frac{7}{10}\) = \(\frac{7}{54}\).

Question 41.

= \(\frac{10}{3}\) or 3\(\frac{1}{3}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as (4\(\frac{3}{8}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{4}\)) X \(\frac{4}{7}\), First we write mixed fraction into fraction for 4\(\frac{3}{8}\) as

(4 X 8 + 3 by 8) = \(\frac{35}{8}\), now we divide with \(\frac{3}{4}\),

now we write as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{35}{8}\) X \(\frac{4}{3}\) =

\(\frac{35 X 4}{8 X 3}\) = \(\frac{140}{24}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 4, 4 X 35 = 140 and 4 X 6 = 24,

(35,6)=\(\frac{35}{6}\), now we multiply with \(\frac{35}{6}\) X \(\frac{4}{7}\) = \(\frac{35 X 4}{6 X 7}\) = \(\frac{140}{42}\),

as both goes in 14, 14 X 10 = 140, 14 X 3 = 42, (10, 3) = \(\frac{10}{3}\),

as numerator is greater we write (3 X 3 + 1 by 3) = 3\(\frac{1}{3}\),

therefore (4\(\frac{3}{8}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{4}\)) X \(\frac{4}{7}\) =

\(\frac{10}{3}\) or 3\(\frac{1}{3}\).

Question 42.

= \(\frac{25}{2}\) = 12\(\frac{1}{2}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as (1\(\frac{9}{11}\) X 4\(\frac{7}{12}\)) ÷ \(\frac{2}{3}\), First we write mixed fraction into fraction for 1\(\frac{9}{11}\) as

(1 X 11 + 9 by 11) = \(\frac{20}{11}\) and 4\(\frac{7}{12}\) as

(4 X 12 + 7 by 12) = \(\frac{55}{12}\) now we calculate first

\(\frac{20}{11}\) X \(\frac{55}{12}\) = \(\frac{20 X 55}{11 X 12}\) =

\(\frac{1100}{132}\) we further simply as both goes in 44,

44 X 25 = 1100, 44 X 3 = 132, (25, 3) = \(\frac{25}{3}\),

Now we calculate as \(\frac{25}{3}\) ÷ \(\frac{2}{3}\)

now we write as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{25}{3}\) X \(\frac{3}{2}\) =

\(\frac{25 X 3}{3 X 2}\) = \(\frac{75}{6}\), as both goes in 3,

3 X 25 = 75, 3 X 2 = 6, (25, 2) = \(\frac{25}{2}\)

as numerator is greater we write (12 X 2 + 1 by 2) = 12\(\frac{1}{2}\),

therefore (1\(\frac{9}{11}\) X 4\(\frac{7}{12}\)) ÷ \(\frac{2}{3}\) =

\(\frac{25}{2}\) = 12\(\frac{1}{2}\).

Question 43.

= \(\frac{7}{108}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as 3\(\frac{4}{15}\) ÷ (8 X 6\(\frac{3}{10}\)),

First we write mixed fraction into fraction for 6\(\frac{3}{10}\) as

(6 X 10 + 3 by 10) = \(\frac{63}{10}\) now we calculate first

8 X \(\frac{63}{10}\) = \(\frac{8 X 63}{10}\) =

\(\frac{504}{10}\) we further simply as both goes in 2,

2 X 252 = 504, 2 X 5 = 10, (252, 5) = \(\frac{252}{5}\),

Now 3\(\frac{4}{15}\) = ( 3 X 15 + 4 by 15) = \(\frac{49}{15}\)

Now we calculate as \(\frac{49}{15}\) ÷ \(\frac{252}{5}\)

now we write as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{49}{15}\) X \(\frac{5}{252}\) =

\(\frac{49 X 5}{15 X 252}\) = \(\frac{245}{3780}\), as both goes in 35,

35 X 7 = 245, 35 X 108 = 3780, (7, 108) = \(\frac{7}{108}\).

Therefore 3\(\frac{4}{15}\) ÷ (8 X 6\(\frac{3}{10}\)) = \(\frac{7}{108}\).

Question 44.

= \(\frac{11}{35}\)

Explanation:

Given expression as 2\(\frac{5}{14}\) ÷ (2\(\frac{5}{8}\) X

1\(\frac{3}{7}\)),First we write mixed fraction into fraction

for 2\(\frac{5}{8}\) as

(2 X 8 + 5 by 8) = \(\frac{21}{8}\) and 1\(\frac{3}{7}\) =

(1 X 7 + 3 by 7) = \(\frac{10}{7}\) now we calculate first

\(\frac{21}{8}\) X \(\frac{10}{7}\) = \(\frac{21 X 10}{8 X 7}\) =

\(\frac{210}{56}\) we further simply as both goes in 2,

2 X 105 = 210, 2 X 28 = 56, (105, 28) = \(\frac{105}{28}\),

we write mixed fraction as fraction 2\(\frac{5}{14}\) as

(2 X 14 + 5 by 14) = \(\frac{33}{14}\),Now we calculate as

\(\frac{33}{14}\) ÷ \(\frac{105}{28}\), now we write as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{33}{14}\) X \(\frac{28}{105}\) =

\(\frac{33 X 28}{14 X 105}\) = \(\frac{462}{1470}\), as both goes in 42,

42 X 11 = 462, 42 X 35 = 1470, (11, 35) = \(\frac{11}{35}\).

Therefore 2\(\frac{5}{14}\) ÷ (2\(\frac{5}{8}\) X 1\(\frac{3}{7}\)) =

\(\frac{11}{35}\).

Question 45.

**LOGIC**

Your friend uses the model shown to state that . Is your friend correct? Justify your answer using the model.

No, friend is incorrect,

Explanation :

Given expression as 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{1}{6}\),

First we write mixed fraction into fraction for 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) as

(2 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{5}{2}\) and 1\(\frac{1}{6}\) =

(1 X 6 + 1 by 6) = \(\frac{7}{6}\) now we wrtie reciprocal and multiply

\(\frac{5}{2}\) X \(\frac{6}{7}\) = \(\frac{5 X 6}{2 X 7}\) =

\(\frac{30}{14}\) further we can simplify as both goes in 2, 2 X 15 = 30,

2 x 7 = 14, (15, 7), \(\frac{30}{14}\) = \(\frac{15}{7}\) as numerator

is greator we write as (2 X 7 + 1 by 7) = 2\(\frac{1}{7}\) and

friend says it is 2\(\frac{1}{6}\) which is incorrect and model is showing

2, 1\(\frac{1}{6}\) and one piece is remaining but we

are getting 2\(\frac{1}{7}\) which is not matching, So freind is incorrect.

Question 46.

**MODELING REAL LIFE**

A bag contains 42 cups of dog food. Your dog eats 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) cups of dog food each day. Is there enough food to last 3 weeks? Explain.

No, there is not enough food to last for 3 weeks,

Explanation:

Given dog eats 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) cups of dog food each day,

now for 3 weeks means 3 X 7 X 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) , We write

mixed fraction 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) as ( 2 X 3 + 1 by 3) =\(\frac{7}{3}\) =

3 X 7 X \(\frac{7}{3}\) = \(\frac{3 X 7 X 7}{3}\) = \(\frac{147}{3}\),

as both goes in 3, 3 X 49, 3 X 1 = 3,(49, 1) = \(\frac{147}{3}\) = 49.

We need 49 cups of dog food and bag contains 42 cups so shortage of 7 cups,

Therefore we do not have enough food to last for 3 weeks.

Question 47.

**DIG DEEPER!**

You have 12 cups of granola and 8\(\frac{1}{2}\) cups of peanuts to make trail mix. What is the greatest number of full batches of trail mix you can make? Explain how you found your answer.

4 is the greatest number of full batches of trail mix I can make,

Explanation:

Given I have 12 cups of granola and 8\(\frac{1}{2}\) cups of

peanuts to make trail mix, trail mix has 2\(\frac{3}{4}\) cups of granola

and 1\(\frac{1}{3}\) cups of peanuts,

First granola mix 12 ÷ 2\(\frac{3}{4}\), We write mixed fraction

as fraction as (2 X 4 + 3 by 4) = \(\frac{11}{4}\) now we write reciprocal

and multiply as 12 X \(\frac{4}{11}\) = \(\frac{12 X 4}{11}\) =

\(\frac{48}{11}\) as numerator is greater we write as

( 4 X 11 + 4 by 11) = 4\(\frac{4}{11}\), Now peanuts mix

8\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{1}{3}\),We write mixed fractions

as fractions as (8 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{17}{2}\) and 1\(\frac{1}{3}\) =

(1 X 3 + 1 by 3) = \(\frac{4}{3}\), Now we write reciprocal and multiply

\(\frac{17}{2}\) X \(\frac{3}{4}\) = \(\frac{17 X 3}{2 X 4}\) =

\(\frac{51}{8}\), as numerator is greater we write as (6 X 8 + 3 by 8)=

6\(\frac{3}{8}\). Therefore I can make 4 full batches.

Question 48.

**REASONING**

At a track and ﬁeld meet, the longest shot-put throw by a boy is 25 feet 8 inches. The longest shot-put throw by a girl is 19 feet 3 inches. How many times greater is the longest shot-put throw by the boy than by the girl?

1.33 times greater is the longest shot-put throw by the boy than by the girl,

Explanation:

Given at a track and ﬁeld meet, the longest shot-put

throw by a boy is 25 feet 8 inches. The longest shot-put throw

by a girl is 19 feet 3 inches.

As we know 1 feet is equal to 12 inches we convert first into inches as

Boy throw = 25 X 12 + 8 = 308 inches

Girl throw = 19 X 12 + 3 = 228 + 3 = 231 inches.

Now boy record to girl record is \(\frac{308}{231}\) = 1.3333,

Therefore 1.33 times greater is the longest shot-put throw by

the boy than by the girl.

**EXPLORATION 1**

**Using Number Lines**

**Work with a partner. Use each number line to ﬁnd A + B and B – A. Explain how you know you are correct.**

a. A + B = 1.1 and B – A = 0.5

b. A + B = 2.24 and B – A = 0.02

c. A + B = 7.6 and B – A = 0.8

d. A + B = 5.1 and B – A = 0.8

a. A + B = 1.1 and B- A = 0.5

Explanation:

a. Given A is at 0.3 and B is at 0.8,

now A + B = 0.3 + 0.8 = 1.1,

B – A = 0.8 – 0.3 = 0.5

b. Given A is at 1.11and B is at 1.13,

A + B = 1.11 + 1.13 = 2.24

B – A = 1.13 – 1.11 = 0.02

c. Given A is at 3.4 and b is at 4.2

A + B = 3.4 + 4.2 = 7.6

A – B = 4.2 – 3.4 = 0.8

d. Given A is at 2.15 and b is at 2.95

A + B = 2.15 + 2.95 = 5.1

A – B = 2.95 – 2.15 = 0.8

Question 10.

**CHOOSE TOOLS**

Why is it helpful to estimate the answer before adding or subtracting decimals?

Estimation is useful when we don’t need an exact answer.

It also lets you check to be sure an exact answer is close

to being correct. Estimating with decimals works

just the same as estimating with whole numbers.

When rounding the values to be added, subtracted,

multiplied, or divided, it helps to round to numbers

that are easy to work with.

Question 11.

**WRITING**

When adding or subtracting decimals, how can you be sure to add or subtract only digits that have the same place value?

When adding and subtracting decimals we use few steps as below:**
**1) We line up the place values of the numbers by lining up the decimals.

2) We Add in filler zeros if needed.

3) Adding or Subtracting the numbers in the same place value positions.

Examples

Question 12.

**OPEN-ENDED**

Describe two real-life examples of when you would need to add and subtract decimals.

We deal with decimal addition and subtraction in everyday

life while dealing with:

Money

Measurements (Length, Mass, Capacity)

Temperature

Decimals can be added or subtracted in the same way as we add or subtract whole numbers.

Example:

a. Kate had $ 368.29. Her mother gave her $ 253.46 and her

sister gave her $ 57.39. How much money does she has now?

Answer:

Money Kate had = $ 368.29

Money gave her mother = $ 253.46

Money gave her sister = __+ $ 57.39
__Total money she has now = $ 679.14

b. Kylie had 25 m of ribbon. She uses 8 m and 13 cm to

decorate a skirt. How much ribbon is remaining with Kylie?

Answer:

Length of ribbon Kylie had = 25 m = 25.00

Length of ribbon used by Kylie = 8 m 13 cm = 8.13

The remaining length of ribbon = 25.00 – 8.13 = 16.87

Question 13.

**STRUCTURE**

You add 3.841 + 29.999 as shown. Describe a method for adding the numbers using mental math. Which method do you prefer? Explain.

I prefer the way as we add or subtract whole numbers as shown above

than the mental math method.

Explanation:

Rounding is a mental math strategy for adding and subtracting numbers.

When you round, you will likely need to adjust your answer to get

the exact answer.

For Example:

23 + 58 can be rounded to 20 + 60 = 80.

23 is 3 more than 20 and 58 is 2 less than 60.(3 -2)

So adjust answer by adding 1. (80 + 1), Answer is 81.

Example:

76 – 40 can be rounded to 80 – 40 = 40.

76 is 4 less than 80. So adjust answer by subtracting 4.

(40- 4) , Answer is 36.

Question 14.

**OPEN-ENDED**

Write three decimals that have a sum of 27.905.

The three decimals are 15.812, 4.670, 7.423 to have a sum of 27.905

Explanation:

We take any decimals randomly as 15.812, 4.670, 7.423,

we have sum of 27.905 as

15.812

4.670

(+)7.423

Question 15.

A ﬁeld hockey ﬁeld is rectangular. Its width is 54.88 meters, and its perimeter is 289.76 meters. Find the length of the ﬁeld.

The length of hockey field is 90 meters

Explanation:

Given a ﬁeld hockey ﬁeld is rectangular. Its width is 54.88 meters

and its perimeter is 289.76 meters.

We know perimeter of rectangle is 2( length + width),

So, 289.76 = 2(length + 54.88)

length + 54.88 = \(\frac{289.76}{2}\),

length + 54.88 = 144.88,

length = 144.88 – 54.88 = 90 meters,

Therefore the length of hockey field is 90 meters.

Question 16.

**DIG DEEPER!**

You mix 23.385 grams of sugar and 12.873 grams of baking soda

in a glass container for an experiment. You place the container on a

scale to ﬁnd that the total mass is 104.2 grams.

What is the mass of the container?

The mass of the container is 67.942 grams

Explanation:

Given I mix 23.385 grams of sugar and 12.873 grams of baking soda

in a glass container for an experiment. You place the container on a

scale to ﬁnd that the total mass is 104.2 grams. So the mass of the container

is 104.2 – (23.385 + 12.873) =104.2 – 36.258 = 67.942 grams.

Therefore the mass of the container is 67.942 grams.

Question 17.

One molecule of water is made of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. The masses (in atomic mass units) for one atom of hydrogen and oxygen are shown. What is the mass (in atomic mass units) of one molecule of water?

The mass of one molecule of water is 18.0148 amu

(amu = atomic mass units)

Explanation:

Given One molecule of water is made of two hydrogen

atomsand one oxygen atom. The mass of one atom of

hydrogen is 1.0079 amu and oxygen is 15.999 amu.

So the mass of one molecule of water is (2 X 1.0079) + 15.999,

= 2.0158 + 15.999 = 18.0148 amu, therefore the mass of

one molecule of water is 18.0148 amu.

**Review & Refresh**

Divide. Write the answer in simplest form.

Question 1.

= \(\frac{13}{3}\) = 4\(\frac{1}{3}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as 3\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{4}\),

First we write mixed fraction into fraction 3\(\frac{1}{4}\) as

(3 X 4 + 1 by 4) = \(\frac{13}{4}\),Now \(\frac{3}{4}\) we

write as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{4}{3}\) as

\(\frac{13}{4}\) X \(\frac{4}{3}\) = \(\frac{13 X 4}{4 X 3}\) =

\(\frac{52}{12}\) as both goes in 4, 4 X 13 = 52,

4 X 3 = 12, (13, 3) = \(\frac{13}{3}\) as numerator is greater

we write as (4 X 3 + 1 by 3)= 4\(\frac{1}{3}\).

Therefore 3\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{4}\) = \(\frac{13}{3}\) = 4\(\frac{1}{3}\).

Question 2.

= \(\frac{5}{6}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as 4\(\frac{1}{6}\) ÷ 5

First we write mixed fraction into fraction 4\(\frac{1}{6}\) as

(4 X 6 + 1 by 6) = \(\frac{25}{6}\), Now 5 we

write as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{1}{5}\) as

\(\frac{25}{6}\) X \(\frac{1}{5}\) = \(\frac{25 X 1}{6 X 5}\) =

\(\frac{25}{30}\) as both goes in 5, 5 X 5 = 25,

5 X 6 = 30, (5, 6) = \(\frac{5}{6}\),

Therefore 4\(\frac{1}{6}\) ÷ 5 = \(\frac{5}{6}\).

Question 3.

= \(\frac{25}{12}\) = 2\(\frac{1}{12}\)

Explanation:

Given expressions as 6\(\frac{2}{3}\) ÷ 3\(\frac{1}{5}\),

First we write mixed fractions into fractions 6\(\frac{2}{3}\) as

(6 X 3 + 2 by 3) = \(\frac{20}{3}\) and 3\(\frac{1}{5}\) as

(3 X 5 + 1 by 5) = \(\frac{16}{5}\),Now \(\frac{16}{5}\) we

write as reciprocal and multiply \(\frac{5}{16}\) as

\(\frac{20}{3}\) X \(\frac{5}{16}\) = \(\frac{20 X 5}{3 X 16}\) =

\(\frac{100}{48}\) as both goes in 4, 4 X 25 = 100,

4 X 12 = 48, (25, 12) = \(\frac{25}{12}\) as numerator is greater

we write as (2 X 12 + 1 by 12)= 2\(\frac{1}{12}\).

Therefore 6\(\frac{2}{3}\) ÷ 3\(\frac{1}{5}\) = \(\frac{25}{12}\) = 2\(\frac{1}{12}\).

Saturn is 9.537 AU, Now the greatest distance between Venus

and Saturn, is

1, 1

0.723

+9.537

10.260

Therefore 10.26 AU is the greatest distance between Venus and Saturn.

Question 58.

**STRUCTURE**

When is the sum of two decimals equal to a whole number?

When is the difference of two decimals equal to a whole number? Explain.

The sum of two decimal numbers is a whole number if the

sum of two fractions can be simplified to a whole number.

or this will happen if the fractional parts of the numbers sum to 1.

The difference of two decimal numbers (real numbers

written in decimal digit expansion form) will be an whole number

if and only if their fractional parts are equal and

any whole numbers a & b, a should be always greater or

equal to b then only a-b will be whole number.

Explanation:

When we do adding both numbers the fractional parts of the

numbers so become whole example 1.5 and 3.5 when we add we

get 5 which is a whole number.

In difference example we take 1.17 subtract from 4.17,

here fractional parts are equal 0.17 respectively, we get

the difference as 4.17 -1.17 = 3 which is whole number.

### Lesson 2.5 Multiplying Decimals

**EXPLORATION 1**

**Multiplying Decimals**

**Work with a partner.**

a. Write the multiplication expression represented by each area model. Then ﬁnd the product. Explain how you found your answer.

b. How can you ﬁnd the products in part(a) without using a model? How do you know where to place the decimal points in the answers?

c. Find the product of 0.55 and 0.45. Explain how you found your answer.

a. i. The multiplication expression is \(\frac{5}{10}\) X \(\frac{8}{10}\),

The product is \(\frac{40}{100}\),

ii. The multiplication expression is \(\frac{9}{10}\) X \(\frac{4}{10}\),

The product is \(\frac{36}{100}\),

iii. The multiplication expression of whole part is

\(\frac{10}{10}\) X \(\frac{5}{10}\) and

decimal part is \(\frac{5}{10}\) X \(\frac{5}{10}\)

then the product results is \(\frac{50}{100}\) + \(\frac{25}{100}\),

iv. The multiplication expression of whole part is

\(\frac{10}{10}\) X \(\frac{7}{10}\) and

decimal part is \(\frac{7}{10}\) X \(\frac{7}{10}\)

then the product results is \(\frac{70}{100}\) + \(\frac{49}{100}\),

c. The product of 0.55 and 0.45 is 0.2475,

Explanation:

a. i. By counting the blocks in the area model found

the multiplication expression as \(\frac{5}{10}\) X \(\frac{8}{10}\)

and Step I: We multiply the numerators as 5 X 8 = 40

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 10 =100

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{40}{100}\), So \(\frac{5 X 8}{10 X 10}\) = \(\frac{40}{100}\).

If we see the area model the purple color blocks show

40 out of 100 blocks.

ii. By counting the blocks in the area model found

the multiplication expression as \(\frac{9}{10}\) X \(\frac{4}{10}\)

and Step I: We multiply the numerators as 9 X 4 = 36

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 10 =100

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{36}{100}\), So \(\frac{10 X 10}{10 X 10}\) = \(\frac{36}{100}\).

If we see the area model the purple color blocks show

36 out of 100 blocks.

iii. By counting the blocks in the area model found

the multiplication expression as \(\frac{10}{10}\) X \(\frac{5}{10}\)

and Step I: We multiply the numerators as 10 X 5 = 50

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 10 =100

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{50}{100}\), So \(\frac{10 X 5}{10 X 10}\) = \(\frac{50}{100}\).

Now in decimal part we have \(\frac{5}{10}\) X \(\frac{5}{10}\),

similar to whole part we do multiplication

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 5 X 5 = 25

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 10 =100

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{25}{100}\), therefore then the product results is

\(\frac{50}{100}\) + \(\frac{25}{100}\),

iv. By counting the blocks in the area model found

the multiplication expression as \(\frac{10}{10}\) X \(\frac{7}{10}\)

and Step I: We multiply the numerators as 10 X 7 = 70

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 10 =100

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{70}{100}\), So \(\frac{10 X 7}{10 X 10}\) = \(\frac{70}{100}\).

Now in decimal part we have \(\frac{7}{10}\) X \(\frac{7}{10}\),

similar to whole part we do multiplication

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 7 X 7 = 49

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 10 =100

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{49}{100}\), therefore then the product results is

\(\frac{70}{100}\) + \(\frac{49}{100}\).

b. We use normal multiplication of numbers without any model,

Decimals are a shorthand way to write fractions and

mixed numbers with denominators that are powers of 10, like 10,100,1000,10000,

$10,100,1000,10000,$

etc.

If a number has a decimal point, then the first digit to the

right of the decimal point indicates the number of tenths.

For example, the decimal 0.3 is the same as the fraction \(\frac{3}{10}\)

The second digit to the right of the decimal point indicates

the number of hundredths.

For example, the decimal 3.26 is the same as the mixed number

3 \(\frac{26}{100}\) . (Note that the first digit to the left of

the decimal point is the ones digit.)

We can write decimals with many places to the right of the decimal point.

As shown in below example

c. The product of 0.55 and 0.45 is

2

2

0.55————– 2 decimal places

X0.45 ———— 2 decimal places

0275 (first 0.05 X 0.55)

2200 (0.4 X 0.55)

0.2475 ———- 4 decimal places

Therefore the product of 0.55 and 0.45 is 0.2475.

If you know 12 × 24 = 288, how can you ﬁnd 0.12 × 0.24?

We have 4 deciml places so 0.12 X 0.24 = 0.0288

Explanation:

Given I know 12 X 24 = 288,

we find 0.12 X 0.24 as we have 2 + 2 = 4 decimals

we write 244 with four decimals as 0.0288,

therefore 0.12 X 0.24 = 0.0288.

Is the product 1.23 × 8 greater than or less than 8? Explain.

The product of 1.23 X 8 is greater than 8,

Explanation:

1.23 X 8 = 9.84,

Now comparing 9.84 with 8, 9.84 is greater than 8,

or we have the whole part 1 plus 0.23 when multiplied by 8 it’s

value becomes more only.

therefore 1.23 X 8 >8.

5, 7.5, 11.25, 16.875, 25.3125, 37.96875, 56.953125

Explanation:

Given series are 5, 7.5, 11.25, 16.875, each number

is multiplied by 1.5 of the previous number as shown, So

5 X 1.5 = 7.5, 7.5 X 1.5 = 11.25, 11.25 X 1.5 = 16.875,

the next number is 16.875 X 1.5 = 25.3125,

the next number after 25.3125 X 1.5 = 37.96875 and

the next number is 37.96875 X 1.5 = 56.953125.

therefore 5, 7.5, 11.25, 16.875, the next three numbers are

5, 7.5, 11.25, 16.875, 25.3125, 37.96875, 56.953125.

Explanation:

a. Shown restaurant menu that has main items, desserts and

beverages, with their prices.

b. I ate Passion Mousse, Iced Coffee and Chicken Breasts Quarters only,

my friend ate Pecan Cheese Cake, Expresso and Meatloaf with Gravy,

Now Passion Mousse, Iced Coffee and Chicken Breasts Quarters only

costs $5.90 + $5.90 + $3.75 =

5.90

5.90

+3.75

15.55

My cost is $15.55

and friend costs are Pecan Cheese Cake, Expresso and

Meatloaf with Gravy $4.95 + $5.90 + $4.25 =

4.95

5.90

+4.25

Question 74.

**GEOMETRY**

A rectangular painting has an area of 9.52 square feet.

a. Draw three different ways in which this can happen.

b. The cost of a frame depends on the perimeter of the painting.

Which of your drawings from part(a) is the least expensive to frame?

Explain your reasoning.

c. The thin, black framing costs $1 per foot. The fancy framing costs $5 per foot. Will the fancy framing cost ﬁve times as much as the black framing? Explain why or why not.

d. Suppose the cost of a frame depends on the outside perimeter of the frame. Does this change your answer to part(c)? Explain why or why not.

a.

b. Photoframe i (3.2, 2.975) is the least expensive to frame.

c. Yes, the fancy framing cost ﬁve times as much as the black framing,

d. Yes, It will change if it depends on the outside

perimeter of the frame, not on the material used.

Explanation:

a. Given a rectangular painting has an area of 9.52 square feet,

We know area of rectangle is length X width and it is 9.52 square feet,

Drawn three different ways in which this can happen in the above picture,

as i. 3.2 X 2.975 = 9.52 square feet, ii. 3.4 X 2.8 = 9.52 square feet and

3.8 X 2.505 = 9.52 square feet .

b. The perimeter of paintings are

i. 2(3.2 + 2.975) = 2 X 6.175 = 12.35 feet

ii. 2(3.4 + 2.8) = 2 X 6.2 = 12.4 feet

iii. 2( 3.8 + 2.505) = 2 X 6.305 = 12.61 feet

among the three the least perimeter is 12.35 feet,

So, photoframe i(3.2, 2.975) is the least expensive to frame.

c. The thin, black framing costs $1 per foot.

The fancy framing costs $5 per foot.

So for black framing it is 9.52 X 1 =9.52 dollars,

and for fancy framing it costs 9.52 X 5 = 47.6 dollars,

which is 5 times more than black framing, therefore

fancy framing costs ﬁve times as much as the black framing.

d. If the cost of a frame depends on the outside perimeter of the frame

not the material used then black framing and fancy frame will have

same cost, which will differ from part c results.

**EXPLORATION 1**

**Using a Double Bar Graph**

**Work with a partner. The double bar graph shows the history of a citywide cleanup day.**

a. Make ﬁve conclusions from the graph.

b. Compare the results of the city cleanup day in 2016 to the results in 2014.

c. What is the average combined amount of trash and recyclables collected each year over the four-year period?

d. Make a prediction about the amount of trash collected in a future year.

a. Five conclusions from the graph:

1. Every year the amount of trash and recyclables

quantity is increasing.

2. Every year the trash quantity is more

than the quantity of recyclables.

3. In the Year 2017 the amount of trash

and recyclables collected in pounds is more

than 7000 pounds.

4. In the year 2014 he amount of trash

and recyclables collected in pounds is less

than 3000 pounds.

5. We have collected information of data

for 4 consecutive years.

b. In 2016 amount collected is 4970 + 732 = 5702 pounds and

in 2014 it is 2310 + 183 = 2493 pounds, Therefore in 2016 the

amount collected is more compared to 2014.

c. The average combined amount of trash and recyclables

collected each year over the four-year period is 5052.5 pounds.

d. We can predict about the amount of trash collected

in a future year 2018 will be approximately 7500 pounds.

Explanation:

a. Five conclusions from the graph are written as below

1. Every year the amount of trash and recyclables

quantity is increasing in 2014 it is 2310, 183,

in 2015 it is 3975,555, in 2016 it is 4970, 732 and

in year 2017 it is 6390, 1095 pounds.

2. Every year the trash quantity is more

than the quantity of recyclables.

In 2014 – 2310 > 183,

In 2015 – 3975 > 555,

In 2016 – 4970 > 732,

In 2017 – 6390 > 1095.

3. In the Year 2017 the amount of trash

and recyclables collected in pounds is more

than 7000 pounds because in 2017 it is 6390 + 1095 =

7485 pounds which is more than 7000 pounds.

4. In the year 2014 he amount of trash

and recyclables collected in pounds is less

than 3000 pounds because in 2014 it is 2310 + 183

= 2493 pounds which is less than 3000 pounds.

5. We have collected information of data

for 4 consecutive years as 2014 , 2015 , 2016 and 2017.

b. In 2016 it is 4970 pounds of trash and 732 pounds of recyclables,

In 2014 it is 2310 pounds of trash and 183 pounds of recyclables,

Now in n 2016 amount collected is 4970 + 732 = 5702 pounds and

in 2014 it is 2310 + 183 = 2493 pounds, Therefore in 2016 the

amount collected is more compared to 2014.

c. The average combined amount of trash and recyclables

collected each year is

In 2014 = 2310 + 183 = 2493 pounds

In 2015 = 3975 + 555 = 4530 pounds

In 2016 = 4970 + 732 = 5702 pounds

In 2017 = 6390 + 1095 = 7485 pounds

Total amount of collection in 4 years is

2493 + 4530 + 5702 + 7485 = 20210 pounds

and average for 4 years is 20210 ÷ 4 = 5052.5 pounds,

Therefore the average combined amount of trash and recyclables

collected each year over the four-year period is 5052.5 pounds.

d. Every year we see how much it increased

2015 & 2014- trash is 3975 – 2310 = 1665 pounds,

recyclables is 555 – 183 = 372 pounds

2016 & 2015 – trash 4970 – 3975 = 995 pounds

recyclables is 732 – 555 = 177 pounds

2017 & 2016 – trash 6390 – 4970 = 1420

recyclables is 1095 – 732 = 363 pounds,

as we see every year trash has increased

So we can predict about the amount of trash collected

in a future year 2018 will be approximately 7500 pounds.

**2.6 Lesson**

You have used long division to divide whole numbers. When the divisor divides evenly into the dividend, the quotient is a whole number.

When the divisor does not divide evenly into the dividend, you obtain a remainder. When this occurs, you can write the quotient as a mixed number.

Question 9.

**VOCABULARY**

Use the division problem shown to tell whether the number is the

divisor, dividend, or quotient.

a. 884 — dividend

b. 26 —quotient

c. 34 — divisor

Explanation:

In division, we divide a number by any other number to

get another number as a result. So, the number which is

getting divided here is called the dividend.

The number which divides a given number is the divisor.

And the number which we get as a result is known as the quotient.

Divisor Formula: The operation of division in the form of:

Dividend ÷ Divisor = Quotient,

The above expression can also be written as:

Divisor = Dividend ÷ Quotient

Here, ‘÷’ is the symbol of division. But sometimes,

it is also represented by the ‘/’ symbol, such as

Dividend / Divisor = Quotient.

Question 10.

**NUMBER SENSE**

Without calculating, decide which is greater:

3999 ÷ 129 or 3834 ÷ 142. Explain.

3999 ÷ 129 is greater,

Explanation:

As given to find which is greater among

3999 ÷ 129 or 3834 ÷ 142 if we compare

numerators 3999 > 3834 and denominators

129 < 142 , So obviously 3999 ÷ 129 is greater.

Question 11.

**REASONING**

In a division problem, can the remainder be greater than the divisor? Explain.

No, the remainder cannot be greater than the divisor,

Explanation:

Remainder means something which is ‘left over’ or ‘remaining’.

When one number divides another number completely,

the remainder is 0.

The remainder is always less than the divisor.

If the remainder is greater than the divisor,

it means that the division is incomplete,

therefore the remainder cannot be greater than the divisor,

2014 to 2017 is 16,648.

Question 14.

How many times more people attended the food festival in 2017 than in 2014?

4,236 more people attended the food festival in 2017,

Explanation:

In Year 2017 people attended the food festival are 6354 and

in year 2014 it is 2118, So more people attended the food festival

in 2017 are 6354 – 2118 =

6354

-2118

4236

So, 4,236 more people attended the food festival in 2017.

Question 15.

What is the average attendance at the festival each year over the four-year period?

The average attendance at the festival each year

over the four-year period is 4162,

Explanation:

We have total attendance at the food festival from

2014 to 2017 is 16,648, Now the average attendance is

16648 ÷ 4 = 4162

Therefore, The average attendance at the festival each year

over the four-year period is 4162.

Question 16.

The festival projects that the attendance for 2018 will be

twice the attendance in 2016. What is the

projected attendance for 2018?

The projected attendance for 2018 is 9570,

Explanation:

Given the attendance in 2016 is 4785,

the projected attendance for 2018 is

twice the attendance in 2016 is 2 X 4785 = 9570.

Therefore, the projected attendance for 2018 is 9570.

therefore \(\frac{1308}{12}\) = 109 ≠ 19,

So friend is incorrect.

**GEOMETRY**

**Find the perimeter of the rectangle.**

Question 32.

The perimeter of the rectangle is 24 inches,

Explanation:

Given area of rectangle as 35 in^{2 }and width as 7 in,

we know area of rectangle is width X length,

35 = 7 X length, So length = 35 ÷ 7 = 5 ( 7 X 5 = 35),

So length of rectangle is 5 in, Now perimeter of

the rectangle is 2( length + width) = 2, (5 + 7) =

2 X 12 = 24 inches, therefore the perimeter of the

rectangle is 24 inches.

Question 33.

The perimeter of the rectangle is 42 ft,

Explanation:

Given area of rectangle as 108 ft^{2 }and width as 12 ft,

we know area of rectangle is width X length,

108 = 12 X length, So length = 108 ÷ 12 = 9, ( 9 X 12 = 108),

So length of rectangle is 9 ft, Now perimeter of

the rectangle is 2( length + width) = 2 (9 + 12) = 2 X 21 = 42 ft,

therefore the perimeter of the rectangle is 42 ft.

Question 34.

The perimeter of the rectangle is 36 m,

Explanation:

Given area of rectangle as 80 m^{2 }and width as 10 m,

we know area of rectangle is width X length,

80 = 10 X length, So length = 80 ÷ 10 = 8, (8 X 10 = 80),

So length of rectangle is 8 m, Now perimeter of

the rectangle is 2( length + width) = 2 (8 + 10) = 2 X 18 = 36 m,

therefore the perimeter of the rectangle is 36 m.

Question 35.

**REASONING**

You borrow bookcases like the one shown to display 943 books

at a book sale. You plan to put 22 books on each shelf.

No books will be on top of the bookcases.

a. How many bookcases must you borrow to display all the books?

b. You ﬁll the shelves of each bookcase in order, starting

with the top shelf. How many books are on each shelf of the

last bookcase?

a. 9 bookcases I must borrow to display all the books,

b. Books in each shelf of the last bookcase are

shelf 1-22, shelf 2- 22, shelf 3-19, shelf 4-0, shelf 5 -0 books,

Explanation:

Given I borrow bookcases like the one shown to display

943 books at a book sale.I plan to put 22 books on each

shelf and no books will be on top of the bookcases.

a. Number of bookcases I must borrow to display

all the books are each bookcases have 5 shelves and in each

shelf I can put 22 books so in each bookcase I can put

5 X 22 = 110 books, Now 943 ÷ 110 =

\(\frac{943}{110}\) as numerator is greater we

write as ( 8 X 110 + 63 by 110) = 8\(\frac{63}{110}\) ,

means 8 bookcases and 63 books are still there,

so I require 9 bookcases to completely keep the books

in the shelves.

b. Now I ﬁll the shelves of each bookcase in order, starting

with the top shelf. I have 63 books to arrange in 9 bookcase,

So books are on each shelf of the last bookcase are

shelf 1 – 22 books, now we are left with 63 – 22 = 41 books

shelf 2 = 22 books, now we are left with 41 – 22 = 19 books

shelf 3 = 19 books,

shelf 4 = 0 books,

shelf 5 = 0 books respectively.

Question 36.

**DIG DEEPER!**

The siding of a house is 2250 square feet. The siding needs two coats of paint.

a. What is the minimum cost of the paint needed to complete the job?

b. How much paint is left over when you spend the minimum amount?

a. The minimum cost of the paint needed to complete the job is $435,

b. \(\frac{30}{32}\) gallon paint is left over

when I spend the minimum amount,

Explanation:

Given the siding of a house is 2250 square feet.

The siding needs two coats of paint. So the siding

becomes 2 X 2250 = 4500 square feet,

Now we check with the paints needed If we take

1 quart it will cover 80 square feet and 1 quart cost is $ 18 means

we require 4500 ÷ 80 = \(\frac{4500}{80}\) as both goes

in 10, 10 X 450 = 4500, 10 X 8 = 80, (450 , 8) = \(\frac{450}{8}\)

as numerator is greater we write as ( 56 X 8 + 2 by 8) = 56\(\frac{2}{8}\) ,

we need approximately 57 quart, the cost will be

57 X $18 = $1026 to complete the job,

If we take 1 gallon it will cover 320 square feet and

1 gallon costs is $29 means we require 4500 ÷ 320 =

\(\frac{4500}{320}\) as both goes in 10, 10 X 450 = 4500,

10 X 32 = 320, (450 , 32) = \(\frac{450}{32}\)

as numerator is greater we write as ( 14 X 32 + 2 by 32) = 14\(\frac{2}{32}\) ,

we need approximately 15 gallons, the cost will be

15 X $29 = $435 to complete the job,

So the minimum cost of the paint needed to complete the job is $435.

b. The paint left over when I spend the minimum amount is

15 – \(\frac{450}{32}\) = (15 X 32 – 450 by 32) =

(480-450 by 32) = \(\frac{30}{32}\) gallon paint is left.

Question 37.

**CRITICAL THINKING**

Use the digits 3, 4, 6, and 9 to complete the division problem. Use each digit once.

36,000 ÷ 900 = 40 or 36,000 ÷ 400 = 90,

Explanation:

To complete the division problem we use digits

3, 4, 6, 9 each digit once as if we take first 3,4,

we are left with digits 6, 9,

34,000 ÷ 900 ≈ 38 not matches to complete the division problem,

34,000 ÷ 600 ≈ 57 not matches to complete the division problem,

next 36,000 ÷ 900 = 40 matches to complete the division problem,

36,000 ÷ 400 = 90 matches to complete the division problem,

next we take 4, 3 we are left with digits 6 ,9,

43,000 ÷ 900 ≈ 47 not matches to complete the division problem,

43,000 ÷ 600 ≈ 71 not matches to complete the division problem,

next we take 6, 4 we are left with digits 3 ,9,

64,000 ÷ 300 ≈ 213 not matches to complete the division problem,

64,000 ÷ 900 ≈ 71 not matches to complete the division problem,

next we take 9, 6 we are left with digits 3,4,

96,000 ÷ 300 ≈ 320 not matches to complete the division problem,

96,000 ÷ 400 ≈ 240 not matches to complete the division problem,

So to complete the division problem we write as

36,000 ÷ 900 = 40 or 36,000 ÷ 400 = 90.

### Lesson 2.7 Dividing Decimals

**EXPLORATION 1**

**Dividing Decimals**

**Work with a partner.**

a. Write two division expressions represented by each area model. Then ﬁnd the quotients. Explain how you found your answer.

b. Use a calculator to ﬁnd 119 ÷ 17, 11.9 ÷ 1.7, 1.19 ÷ 0.17

and 0.119 ÷ 0.017. What do you notice? Explain how you can

use long division to divide any pair of multi-digit decimals.

a. i. Two division expressions are \(\frac{40}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{8}{10}\) =

\(\frac{5}{10}\) or \(\frac{40}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{10}\) =

\(\frac{8}{10}\),

ii. The division expression of whole part is

\(\frac{50}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{10}\) = \(\frac{10}{10}\) or

and \(\frac{50}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{10}{10}\) = \(\frac{5}{10}\)

decimal part is \(\frac{25}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{10}\) = \(\frac{5}{10}\)

or \(\frac{25}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{10}\) = \(\frac{5}{10}\),

iii. The division expression of whole part is

\(\frac{70}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{7}{10}\) = \(\frac{10}{10}\) or

\(\frac{70}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{10}{10}\) = \(\frac{7}{10}\) and

decimal part is \(\frac{49}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{7}{10}\) = \(\frac{7}{10}\),

b. 19 ÷ 17 = 7, 11.9 ÷ 1.7 = 7, 1.19 ÷ 0.17 = 7

and 0.119 ÷ 0.017 = 7,

To multiply decimals, first multiply as

if there is no decimal. Next, count the number of digits after

the decimal in each factor. Finally, put the same number of digits

behind the decimal in the product.

Explanation:

a. Two division expressions are \(\frac{40}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{8}{10}\) =

\(\frac{5}{10}\) or \(\frac{40}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{10}\) =

\(\frac{8}{10}\), or

By counting the blocks in the area model found

the two division expressions are \(\frac{5}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{10}{8}\)

first we write the reciprocal \(\frac{10}{8}\) and multiply as

\(\frac{5}{10}\) X \(\frac{8}{10}\)

and Step I: We multiply the numerators as 5 X 8 = 40

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 10 =100

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{40}{100}\), So \(\frac{5 X 8}{10 X 10}\) = \(\frac{40}{100}\).

If we see the area model the purple color blocks show

40 out of 100 blocks.

ii. The division expression of whole part is

\(\frac{50}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{10}\) = \(\frac{10}{10}\) or

and \(\frac{50}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{10}{10}\) = \(\frac{5}{10}\)

decimal part is \(\frac{25}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{10}\) = \(\frac{5}{10}\)

or \(\frac{25}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{10}\) = \(\frac{5}{10}\), or

By counting the blocks in the area model found

the multiplication expression as \(\frac{10}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{10}\)

first we write the reciprocal \(\frac{10}{5}\) and multiply as

\(\frac{10}{10}\) X \(\frac{5}{10}\)

and Step I: We multiply the numerators as 10 X 5 = 50

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 10 =100

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{50}{100}\), So \(\frac{10 X 5}{10 X 10}\) = \(\frac{50}{100}\).

Now in decimal part we have \(\frac{5}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{10}{5}\),

first we write the reciprocal \(\frac{10}{5}\) and multiply as

\(\frac{5}{10}\) X \(\frac{5}{10}\)

similar to whole part we do multiplication

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 5 X 5 = 25

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 10 =100

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{25}{100}\), therefore then the product results is

\(\frac{50}{100}\) + \(\frac{25}{100}\),

iii. The division expression of whole part is

\(\frac{70}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{7}{10}\) = \(\frac{10}{10}\) or

\(\frac{70}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{10}{10}\) = \(\frac{7}{10}\) and

decimal part is \(\frac{49}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{7}{10}\) = \(\frac{7}{10}\), or By counting the blocks in the area model found

the division expression as \(\frac{10}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{10}{7}\)

first we write the reciprocal \(\frac{10}{7}\) and multiply as

\(\frac{10}{10}\) X \(\frac{7}{10}\)

and Step I: We multiply the numerators as 10 X 7 = 70

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 10 =100

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{70}{100}\), So \(\frac{10 X 7}{10 X 10}\) = \(\frac{70}{100}\).

Now in decimal part we have \(\frac{7}{10}\) ÷ \(\frac{10}{7}\),

first we write the reciprocal \(\frac{10}{7}\) and multiply as

\(\frac{7}{10}\) X \(\frac{7}{10}\),

similar to whole part we do multiplication

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 7 X 7 = 49

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 10 =100

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{49}{100}\), therefore then the product results is

\(\frac{70}{100}\) + \(\frac{49}{100}\).

b. 19 ÷ 17 = 7, 11.9 ÷ 1.7 = 7, 1.19 ÷ 0.17 = 7

and 0.119 ÷ 0.017 = 7,

To multiply decimals, first multiply as

if there is no decimal. Next, count the number of digits after

the decimal in each factor. Finally, put the same number of digits

behind the decimal in the product.

Example: 7.6)19.76(

The first thing that we want to do when dividing decimals is to turn

the divisor into a whole number. We do this by moving the decimal

place to the right:

7.6 —–> 76

If we move the decimal over one place in the divisor,

we must also move the decimal over one place in the dividend:

19.76 —–>197.6

The new division problem should look as follows:

76 )197.6(

We’ve already placed the decimal in our answer.

When we divide decimals, we place the decimal directly above

the decimal in the dividend, but only after we’ve completed the

first two steps of moving the decimal point in the divisor and dividend.

Now we can divide like normal: 76)197.6(

Think: how many times can 76 go into 197

76 can go into 197 two times so we write a 2 over the 7

in the dividend:

76) 197.6(2.

Next, we multiply 2 and 76 and write that product underneath

the 197 and subtract:

76)197.6(2.

-152

45

Now we bring down the 6 from the dividend to make the 45 into a 456.

Think: how many times can 76 go into 456?

76 can go into 465 six times so we write a 6 above the 6 in the dividend:

76)197.6(2.6

-152

456

Next, we multiply 6 and 76 and write that product underneath

the 456 and subtract:

We are left with no remainder and a final quotient of 2.6.

**Key Idea**

**Dividing Decimals by Decimals
**

**Words**

Multiply the divisor and the dividend by a power of 10 to make

the divisor a whole number. Then place the decimal point in the

quotient above the decimal point in the dividend and divide as

you would with whole numbers. Continue until there is no remainder.

-2.4

29.82 millions

Now the number of visitors increase more from Year 3 to Year 4 is

Year 4 – 102.6 millions and Year 3 – 88.4 millions

increased in more are 102.6 – 88.4 =

102.6

-88.4

14.2 millions

The number of visitors increased more from Year 1 to Year 2 is when

compared to Year 3 to Year 4 , by more times is 29.82 ÷ 14.2 =

2.1

14.2)29.82 14.2 X 2 =

Question 9.

Two division expressions are \(\frac{54}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{6}{10}\) =

\(\frac{9}{10}\) or \(\frac{54}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{9}{10}\) =

\(\frac{6}{10}\), we rewrite the expression as

\(\frac{54}{10}\) = \(\frac{6}{10}\) X \(\frac{9}{10}\),

Explanation:

By counting the blocks in the area model found

the two division expressions are \(\frac{54}{100}\) ÷ \(\frac{6}{10}\)

= \(\frac{9}{10}\)

If we see the area model the purple color blocks show

54 out of 100 blocks.

now we write as \(\frac{54}{100}\) = \(\frac{6}{10}\) X

Given expressions as 75.6 ÷ 63 , 7.56 ÷ 0.63 ,

if we compare we have 75.6 ÷ 63 we can write as

0.756 X 100 ÷ 0.63 X 100 = 0.756 ÷ 0.63 now if we compare

7.56 is more than 0.756 and both are divided by 0.63,

So 75.6 ÷ 63 < 7.56 ÷ 0.63.

Question 71.

**DIG DEEPER!**

The table shows the top three times in a swimming event at the Summer Olympics.

The event consists of a team of four women swimming 100 meters each.

a. Suppose the times of all four swimmers on each team were the same.

For each team, how much time does it take a swimmer to swim 100 meters?

b. Suppose each U.S. swimmer completed 100 meters a quarter second faster.

Would the U.S. team have won the gold medal? Explain your reasoning.

a. For each team the time it will take a swimmer to

swim 100 meters is, for Australia it will be 52.6625 seconds,

for United states it will be 52.9725 seconds and

for Canada it will be 53.2225 seconds.

b. No, because even if U.S swimmer completes a quarter second faster

it becomes 210.89 which is more time than Australia team, So U.S team

would not have won the gold medal.

Explanation:

Given table shows the top three times in a swimming event

at the Summer Olympics.

a. For each team the time it will take a swimmer to

swim 100 meters is for Australia it will be 210.65 ÷ 4 =

52.6625

0.002 4 X 0.0005 = 0.002

0.002

0

for Canada it will be 53.2225 seconds,

b. If each U.S. swimmer completed 100 meters a quarter second faster,

we will see the U.S. team have won the gold medal or not as

quarter second faster 4 women in each team means 1 second,

so it would have finished in 211.89 – 1 =

211.89

– 1.00

210.89

Now comparing with Australia it will be 210.65 even then it is

210.89

-210.65

So U.S team would have taken 0.24 seconds more,

therefore U.S team would not have won the gold medal.

Question 72.

**PROBLEM SOLVING**

To approximate the number of bees in a hive, multiply the number

of bees that leave the hive in one minute by 3 and divide by 0.014.

You count 25 bees leaving a hive in one minute. How many bees are in the hive?

There are 5357 bees are in the hive,

Explanation:

Given to approximate the number of bees in a hive,

multiply the number of bees that leave the hive in one

minute by 3 and divide by 0.014. I count 25 bees leaving

a hive in one minutes so number of bees in the hive are

(25 X 3) ÷ 0.014 = 75 ÷ 0.014 =

5357

0.014)75.000 0.014 X 5357 = 74.998

74.998

0.002 remainder

therefore there are 5357 bees are in the hive.

Question 73.

**PROBLEM SOLVING**

You are saving money to buy a new bicycle that costs $155.75.

You have $30 and plan to save $5 each week. Your aunt decides

to give you an additional $10 each week.

a. How many weeks will you have to save until you

have enough money to buy the bicycle?

b. How many more weeks would you have to save to

buy a new bicycle that costs $203.89? Explain how you found your answer.

a. 9 weeks I have to save until I have enough money to buy

the bicycle.

b. 3 weeks more I have to save to buy a new bicycle that

costs $203.89.

Explanation:

a. Given I am saving money to buy a new bicycle that costs $155.75.

I have $30 and plan to save $5 each week. my aunt decides

to give me an additional $10 each week. So number of weeks

will I have to save until I have enough money to buy the bicycle is,

I alreday have $30 means I need to save is $155.75 – $30 = $125.75,

every week I can save $5 + $10 = $15,Now weeks it will take is

$125.75 ÷ 15 =

8.383

15)125.75 15 X 8 = 120

1.20

0.050 15 X 0.003 = 0.045

0.045

0.0050 remainder

therefore approximately I need to wait 9 weeks,

b. Number of more weeks would you have to save to

buy a new bicycle that costs $203.89 , $ 203.89 – $30 =

$173.89 I need to save, So number of weeks now is

$173.89 ÷ 15 =

11.59

15)173.89 15 X 11 = 165

165

8.89 15 X 0.5 = 7.5

7.50

1.39 15 X 0.09 =1.35

1.35

0.04 remainder

Therefore approximately I need to wait 12 weeks,

So more number of weeks would I have to save to

buy a new bicycle that costs $203.89 is 3 weeks.

Question 74.

**PRECISION**

A store sells applesauce in two sizes.

a. How many bowls of applesauce ﬁt in a jar?

Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

b. Explain two ways to ﬁnd the better buy.

c. Which is the better buy?

a. Number of bowls of applesauce ﬁt in a jar,

rounding answer to the nearest hundredth is 6.15.

b. i. First way is Dividing to find 1 ounce of applesauce

seperately,

ii. Now we have unitary method,

c. The better buy is 24 ounce jar,

Explanation:

Given 3.9 ounce is bowl, So number of bowls of

applesauce fit in a jar is 24 ÷ 3.9 =

6.153

3.9)24 3.9 X 6 = 23.4

23.4

0.6 3.9 X 0.1 = 0.39

0.39

0.21 3.9 X 0.05 = 0.195

0.195

0.015 3.9 X 0.003 = 0.0117

0.011

0.004 remainder

therefore numberof bowls of applesauce ﬁt in a jar,

rounding answer to the nearest hundredth is 6.15.

b. First way :

1 ounce bowl is $0.52 ÷ 3.9

0.133

3.9)0.52 3.9 X 0.1 = 0.39

0.39

0.130 3.9 X 0.03 = 0.117

0.117

0.0130 3.9 X 0.003 = 0.0117

0.0117

0.0013 remainder

So 1 ounce bowl is $0.133

Now 1 ounce jar is $2.63 ÷ 24

0.109

24)2.63 24 X 0.1 = 2.4

2.4

0.230 24 X 0.009 = 0.216

0.216

0.014 remainder

So 1 ounce jar is $0.109

Second way :

We know unitary methods we have 3.9 ounce bowl is $0.52,

24 once jar is $2.63 as both goes in 3 (3.9,24) we have

1 ounce bowl will be 3.9 ÷ 3 = 0.52 ÷ 3; 1.3 = 0.173,

Now 0.173 ÷ 1.3 =

0.133

1.3)0.173 1.3 X 0.133 = 0.1729

0.1729

0.0001 remainder

So it is $0.1333 for 1 ounce bowl

Now 1 ounce jar is 24 ÷ 3 = 2.63 ÷ 3; 8 = 0.876

Now 0.876 ÷ 8 =

0.1095

8)0.876 8 X 0.1095 = 0.876

0.876

0

So now 1 ounce jar is $0.1095,

C. We have 1 ounce bowl is $0.133 and 1 ounce jar is

$0.109, so on comparing $0.109< $0.133 jar is the better buy.

Question 75.

**GEOMETRY**

The large rectangle’s dimensions are three times the dimensions

of the small rectangle.

a. How many times greater is the perimeter of the large rectangle than the

perimeter of the small rectangle?

b. How many times greater is the area of the large rectangle than the

area of the small rectangle?

c. Are the answers to parts (a) and (b) the same? Explain why or why not.

d. What happens in parts (a) and (b) if the dimensions of the large rectangle

are two times the dimensions of the small rectangle?

a. It will be 3 times greater is the perimeter of the large rectangle than the

perimeter of the small rectangle,

b. It will be 9 times greater is the area of the large rectangle than the

area of the small rectangle.

c. No, because perimeter will be measured in feet and

area is measured in square feet.

d. Perimeter will be 2 times more in large rectangle and

4 times in area in large rectangle than the small rectangle.

Explanation:

Given the large rectangle’s dimensions are three times the

dimensions of the small rectangle means lets take the

smaller rectangle length as x and width y , Then the larger ones

will be length 3x and width will be 3y,

a. Now perimeter of both we know perimeter is

length + breadth for smaller it will be (x+y) and for

larger it will be 3x + 3y = 3(x + y), So It will be 3 times

greater is the perimeter of the large rectangle than the

perimeter of the small rectangle.

b. Now we know area of rectangle is length X breadth,

we have for small rectangle as x X y = xy and for large it

is 3x X 3y = 9xy which is 9 times greater is the area of the large

rectangle than the area of the small rectangle.

c. The answers are not the same in part a and part b,

because one will be measured in feet and other is square feet,

( one is adding and other is multiplying) both differs.

d. Now if the dimensions of the large rectangle

are two times the dimensions of the small rectangle

then perimeter becomes as for small it is x + y and for

large it is 2x + 2y = 2(x + y) and area for small is xy and large

2x X 2y = 4xy, means perimeter will be 2 times more in large rectangle

and 4 times in area in large rectangle than the small rectangle.

### Fractions and Decimals Connecting Concepts

**2 Connecting Concepts**

**Using the Problem-Solving Plan**

Question 1.

You change the water jug on the water cooler.

How many glasses can be completely ﬁlled before you need to

change the water jug again?

**Understand the problem**

You know the capacities of the water jug and the glass.

You are asked to determine how many glasses the water jug can ﬁll.

**Make a plan.2**

First, use what you know about converting measures to

ﬁnd the number of ﬂuid ounces in 5 gallons. Then divide this amount

by the capacity of the glass to ﬁnd the number of glasses that can be ﬁlled.

**Solve and check.**

Use the plan to solve the problem. Then check your solution.

64 glasses can be completely ﬁlled before we need to

change the water jug again,

Explanation:

We know 1 gallons is equal to 128 fluid ounce,

So in 5 gallons we have 5 X 128 = 640 fluid ounces water

is there in 5 gallons water jug.

Now we have 1 glass has 10 fluid ounces of water then in

640 it will be 640 ÷ 10 = 64,

therefore 64 glasses can be completely ﬁlled before we need to

change the water jug again.

Question 2.

Two ferries just departed from their docks at the same time.

Ferry A departs from its dock every 1.2 hours. Ferry B departs

from its dock every 1.8 hours. How long will it be until both ferries

depart from their docks at the same time again?

It will be at 3.6 hours until both ferries depart from their

docks at the same time again.

Explanation:

Given two ferries just departed from their docks at the same time.

Ferry A departs from its dock every 1.2 hours. Ferry B departs

from its dock every 1.8 hours. So the ratio is 1.2 : 1.8 = 2 : 3,

we use cross product for equal hours, ratios as

both meet at 1.2 X 3 = 3.6 hours or 1.8 X 2 = 3.6 hours,

So,It will be at 3.6 hours until both ferries depart from their

docks at the same time again.

Question 3.

You want to paint the ceiling of your bedroom. The ceiling has

two square skylights as shown. Each skylight has a side length of

1\(\frac{7}{8}\) feet. How many square feet will you paint?

Justify your answer.

I will paint 132\(\frac{62}{64}\) square feet,

Explanation:

Given the length and width of rectangle as

10 ft and 14 ft, Area of rectangle is length X breadth=

10 X 14 = 140 square feet,

Now we have 2 square sky light with 1\(\frac{7}{8}\) feet,

so area of skylight is 1\(\frac{7}{8}\) X 1\(\frac{7}{8}\) =

frist we write mixed fraction into fraction as (1 X 8 + 7 by 8) =

\(\frac{15}{8}\) X \(\frac{15}{8}\) =\(\frac{15 X 15}{8 X 8}\) =

\(\frac{225}{64}\) square feet, So 2 sky lighta are there so

\(\frac{225}{64}\) + \(\frac{225}{64}\) as

denominators are same we add numerators as

(225 +225 = 450) we get \(\frac{450}{64}\) square feet,

We have area of rectangle as 140 square feet and 2 skylights as

\(\frac{450}{64}\) square feet, So we will paint

140 – \(\frac{450}{64}\) = \(\frac{8960-450}{64}\) =

\(\frac{8510}{64}\) as numerator is greater we write as

(132 X 64 + 62 by 64) = 132\(\frac{62}{64}\) square feet

i will paint.

**Review Vocabulary**

**Write the deﬁnition and give an example of each vocabulary term.**

Reciprocals or Multiplicative Invesrses :

A reciprocal, or multiplicative inverse, is simply one of a pair of

numbers that, when multiplied together, equal 1.

If you can reduce the number to a fraction, finding the

reciprocal is simply a matter of transposing the numerator and

the denominator.

**Graphic Organizers**

You can use a Summary Triangle to explain a concept. Here is an example of a Summary Triangle for dividing fractions.

**Choose and complete a graphic organizer to help you study the concept.**

- multiplying mixed numbers
- reciprocals
- dividing mixed numbers
- adding and subtracting decimals
- multiplying decimals by decimals
- dividing whole numbers
- dividing decimals by decimals

1. multiplying fractions:

To multiply fractions :

a. Simplify the resulting fraction if possible.

b. Simplify the fractions if not in lowest terms.

c. Multiply the numerators of the fractions to get the new numerator,

Multiply the denominators of the fractions to get the new denominator.

2. multiplying mixed numbers :

A mixed number is a number that contains a whole number and a fraction,

for instance 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) is a mixed number.

Mixed numbers can be multiplied by first converting them

to improper fractions. Below are the general rules for

multiplying mixed numbers:

* Convert the mixed numbers to improper fractions first.

* Multiply the numerators from each fraction to each other

and place the product at the top.

* Multiply the denominators of each fraction by each other

(the numbers on the bottom). The product is the denominator

of the new fraction.

* Simplify or reduce the final answer to the lowest terms possible.

3. reciprocals :

The reciprocal or multiplicative inverse of a number

$x$

is the number which, when multiplied by x , gives 1,

So, the product of a number and its reciprocal is

$1$

.

(This is sometimes called the property of reciprocals),

4. dividing mixed numbers :

Steps for dividing mixed numbers.

a. Change each mixed** **number to an improper fraction.

b. Multiply by the reciprocal of the divisor, simplifying if possible.

c. Put answer in lowest terms.

5. adding and subtracting decimals :

Step 1: Line up the numbers vertically so that the decimal

points all lie on a vertical line.

Step 2: Add extra zeros to the right of the number so that

each number has the same number of digits to the right

of the decimal place.

Step 3: Subtract the numbers as you would whole numbers.

**2.1 Multiplying Fractions (pp. 45-52)**

**Multiply. Write the answer in simplest form.**

Question 1.

= \(\frac{16}{99}\),

Explanation:

Given expression as \(\frac{2}{9}\) X\(\frac{8}{11}\) =

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 2 X 8 = 16

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 9 X 11 =99

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{16}{99}\),

So \(\frac{2}{9}\) X\(\frac{8}{11}\) = \(\frac{16}{99}\).

Question 2.

= \(\frac{6}{25}\),

Explanation:

Given expression as \(\frac{3}{10}\) X \(\frac{4}{5}\) =

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 3 X 4 = 12

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 5 =50

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{12}{50}\), as both goes in 2 we

can further simplify as 2 X 6 = 12, 2 X 25 = 50, (6,25) = \(\frac{6}{25}\),

So \(\frac{3}{10}\) X \(\frac{4}{5}\) = \(\frac{6}{25}\).

Question 3.

= \(\frac{184}{15}\) or 12\(\frac{4}{15}\),

Explanation:

Given expression as 2\(\frac{3}{10}\) X 5\(\frac{1}{3}\),

we write mixed fraction as fraction 2\(\frac{3}{10}\) =

(2 x 10 + 3 by 10) = \(\frac{23}{10}\) and 5\(\frac{1}{3}\) as

( 5 X 3 + 1 by 3) = \(\frac{16}{3}\), Now we multiply as

\(\frac{23}{10}\) X \(\frac{16}{3}\)

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 23 X 16 = 368

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 10 X 3 =30

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{368}{30}\), as both goes in 2,

we can further simplify as 2 X 184 = 368, 2 X 15 = 30, (184,15) = \(\frac{184}{15}\),

as numerator is greater we write as (12 X 15 + 4 by 15) = 12\(\frac{4}{15}\),

So 2\(\frac{3}{10}\) X 5\(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{184}{15}\) or 12\(\frac{4}{15}\).

Question 4.

= \(\frac{80}{63}\) or 1\(\frac{17}{63}\),

Explanation:

Given expression as \(\frac{2}{7}\) X 4\(\frac{4}{9}\),

we write mixed fraction as fraction 4\(\frac{4}{9}\) =

(4 x 9 + 4 by 9) = \(\frac{40}{9}\), Now we multiply as

\(\frac{2}{7}\) X \(\frac{40}{9}\)

Step I: We multiply the numerators as 2 X 40 = 80

Step II: We multiply the denominators as 7 X 9 =63

Step III: We write the fraction in the simplest form as

\(\frac{80}{63}\), as numerator is greater we write as

(1 X 63 + 17 by 63) = 1\(\frac{17}{63}\),

So, \(\frac{2}{7}\) X 4\(\frac{4}{9}\) = \(\frac{80}{63}\) or 1\(\frac{17}{63}\).

Question 5.

Write two fractions whose product is \(\frac{21}{32}\).

The two fractions can be \(\frac{7}{8}\) or \(\frac{3}{4}\),

whose product is \(\frac{21}{32}\),

Explanation:

Given to find two fractions whose product is \(\frac{21}{32}\),

We can take factors of 21 are 1, 3, 7, 21, So numerators can be

(1,21) or (3, 7), now factors of 32 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32,

denominators can be (1, 32) or (2, 16) or (4, 8), So the two fractions

can be \(\frac{7}{8}\) or \(\frac{3}{4}\) whose

product is \(\frac{7 X 3 }{8 X 4}\) or \(\frac{21}{32}\).

Question 6.

A costume designer needs to make 12 costumes for the school play.

Each costume requires 2\(\frac{2}{3}\) yards of fabric.

How many yards of fabric does the costume designer need to

make all the costumes?

The costume designer need 32 yards of fabric to

make all the costumes,

Explanation:

Given a costume designer needs to make 12 costumes

for the school play. Each costume requires 2\(\frac{2}{3}\) yards of fabric.

So for 12 costumes we require 12 X 2\(\frac{2}{3}\) yards of fabric=

first we write mixed fraction into fraction as 2\(\frac{2}{3}\) =

(2 X 3 + 2 by 3) = \(\frac{8}{3}\) So 12 X \(\frac{8}{3}\) =

\(\frac{12 X 8}{3}\) = \(\frac{96}{3}\) as it goes in 3,

3 X 32 = 96 we get \(\frac{96}{3}\) = 32.

therefore the costume designer need 32 yards of fabric to

make all the costumes.

Question 7.

You spend \(\frac{4}{5}\) of an hour on your homework.

You spend \(\frac{1}{2}\) of that time working on your

science homework. How many minutes do you spend working on

science homework?

I have spent 24 minutes working on science homework,

Explanation:

Given I spend \(\frac{4}{5}\) of an hour on my homework.

I have spend \(\frac{1}{2}\) of that time working on my

science homework. So time spent for working on science homework is

\(\frac{4}{5}\) X \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{4 X 1}{5 X 2}\) =

\(\frac{4}{10}\) as further can be simplified as both

goes in 2, 2 X 2 = 4 , 2 X 5 = 10, (2, 5) = \(\frac{2}{5}\) hours,

now we convert into minutes as 1 hour is equal to

60 minutes, So \(\frac{2}{5}\) X 60 = \(\frac{2 X 60}{5}\) =

\(\frac{120}{5}\) as 5 X 24 =120 we get \(\frac{120}{5}\) = 24,

therefore I have spent 24 minutes working on science homework.

**2.2 Dividing Fractions (pp. 53-60)**

Divide. Write the answer in simplest form.

Question 8.

= \(\frac{9}{10}\),

Explanation:

Given expressions as \(\frac{3}{4}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{6}\),

we write reciprocal of the fraction \(\frac{5}{6}\) as \(\frac{6}{5}\)

and multiply as \(\frac{3}{4}\) X \(\frac{6}{5}\) =

\(\frac{3 X 6}{4 X 5}\) = \(\frac{18}{20}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 2, 2 X 9 = 18 and 2 X 10 = 20,

(9,10)=\(\frac{9}{10}\). Therefore \(\frac{3}{4}\) ÷

\(\frac{5}{6}\) = \(\frac{9}{10}\).

Question 9.

= \(\frac{1}{20}\),

Explanation:

Given expressions as \(\frac{2}{5}\) ÷ 8

we write reciprocal of the fraction 8 as \(\frac{1}{8}\)

and multiply as \(\frac{2}{5}\) X \(\frac{1}{8}\) =

\(\frac{2 X 1}{5 X 8}\) = \(\frac{2}{40}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 2, 2 X 1 = 2 and 2 X 20 = 40,

(1,20)=\(\frac{1}{20}\). Therefore \(\frac{2}{5}\) ÷ 8

= \(\frac{1}{20}\).

Question 10.

= 15

Explanation:

Given expressions as 5 ÷ \(\frac{1}{3}\),

we write reciprocal of the fraction \(\frac{1}{3}\) as 3

and multiply as 5 X 3 =15, Therefore 5 ÷ \(\frac{1}{3}\) = 15.

Question 11.

= \(\frac{80}{27}\) = 2\(\frac{26}{27}\),

Explanation:

Given expressions as \(\frac{8}{9}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{10}\),

we write reciprocal of the fraction \(\frac{8}{9}\) as \(\frac{10}{3}\)

and multiply as \(\frac{8}{9}\) X \(\frac{10}{3}\) =

\(\frac{8 X 10}{9 X 3}\) = \(\frac{80}{27}\),

as numerator is greater we write as ( 2 X 27 + 26 by 27)= 2\(\frac{26}{27}\).

Therefore \(\frac{8}{9}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{10}\) = \(\frac{80}{27}\) = 2\(\frac{26}{27}\).

Question 12.

each time you make pancakes. How many times can you make pancakes?

We can make 15 times pancakes,

Explanation:

Given a box contains 10 cups of pancake mix. I use \(\frac{2}{3}\) cup

each time you make pancakes, So number of times I

can make pancakes are 10 ÷ \(\frac{2}{3}\) =

we write reciprocal of the fraction \(\frac{2}{3}\) as \(\frac{3}{2}\)

and multiply as 10 X \(\frac{3}{2}\) = \(\frac{10 X 3}{2}\) =

\(\frac{30}{2}\) as 30 goes in 2 we get \(\frac{30}{2}\) = 15,

therefore we can make 15 times pancakes.

Question 13.

Write two fractions whose quotient is \(\frac{28}{45}\).

Explanation:

The two fractions can be \(\frac{4}{9}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{7}\) whose

Explanation:

Given to find two fractions whose quotient is \(\frac{28}{45}\),

We can take factors of 28 are 1, 2, 4, 7, 14 and 28, So numerators can be

(1,28) or (2, 14) or (4, 7), now factors of 45 are 1, 3, 5, 9, 15, and 45,

denominators can be (1, 45) or (3, 15) or (5, 9) and 45

factors will be reciprocal, So the two fractions can be

\(\frac{4}{9}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{7}\) now we calculate

as \(\frac{4}{9}\) X \(\frac{7}{5}\)

quotient is \(\frac{4 X 7}{9 X 5}\) = \(\frac{28}{45}\).

Question 14.

= 2\(\frac{9}{20}\),

Explanation:

Given expressions as 1\(\frac{2}{5}\) ÷ \(\frac{4}{7}\),

we write mixed fraction as ( 1 X 5 + 2 by 5) = \(\frac{7}{5}\),

we write reciprocal of the fraction \(\frac{4}{7}\) as \(\frac{7}{4}\)

and multiply as \(\frac{7}{5}\) X \(\frac{7}{4}\) =

\(\frac{7 X 7}{5 X 4}\) = \(\frac{49}{20}\),

as numerator is greater we write as ( 2 X 20 + 9 by 20)= 2\(\frac{9}{20}\).

Therefore 1\(\frac{2}{5}\) ÷ \(\frac{4}{7}\) = \(\frac{49}{20}\) = 2\(\frac{9}{20}\).

and multiply as 5 X \(\frac{7}{20}\) =

\(\frac{5 X 7}{1 X 20}\) = \(\frac{35}{20}\), as both

goes in 5, we get 5 X 7 = 35, 5 X 4 = 20,(7,4) = \(\frac{7}{4}\)

as numerator is greater we write as ( 1 X 4 + 3 by 4)= 1\(\frac{3}{4}\),

Therefore 5 ÷ 2\(\frac{6}{7}\) = 1\(\frac{3}{4}\).

Question 17.

= 1\(\frac{5}{6}\),

Explanation:

\(\frac{33}{8}\) and 2\(\frac{1}{4}\) as (2 X 4 + 1 by 4) =

\(\frac{9}{4}\) now we write reciprocal of the fraction

\(\frac{9}{4}\) as \(\frac{4}{9}\)

and multiply as \(\frac{33}{8}\) X \(\frac{4}{9}\) =

\(\frac{33 X 4}{8 X 9}\) = \(\frac{132}{72}\),

as both goes in 12, 12 X 11 = 132, 12 X 6 = 72, (11,6) = \(\frac{11}{6}\)

as numerator is greater we write as ( 1 X 6 + 5 by 6)= 1\(\frac{5}{6}\).

Therefore 4\(\frac{1}{8}\) ÷ 2\(\frac{1}{4}\) = 1\(\frac{5}{6}\).

Explanation:

Given expressions as 5\(\frac{5}{7}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{3}{5}\) X

4\(\frac{2}{3}\), first we write mixed fraction 5\(\frac{5}{7}\) as

(5 X 7 + 5 by 7) = \(\frac{40}{7}\) and 1\(\frac{3}{5}\)

as (1 X 5 + 3 by 5) = \(\frac{8}{5}\) now we write reciprocal of the fraction

\(\frac{8}{5}\) as \(\frac{5}{8}\)

and multiply as \(\frac{40}{7}\) X \(\frac{5}{8}\) =

\(\frac{40 X 5}{7 X 8}\) = \(\frac{200}{56}\),

as both goes in 8, 8 X 25 = 200, 8 X 7 = 56, (25,7) = \(\frac{25}{7}\),

Now we write 4\(\frac{2}{3}\) as ( 4 X 3 + 2 by 3) = \(\frac{14}{3}\),

we multiply as \(\frac{25}{7}\) X \(\frac{14}{3}\) =

\(\frac{25 X 14}{7 X 3}\) = \(\frac{350}{21}\), as both goes

in 7 as 7 X 50 = 350, 7 X 3 = 21, (50, 3) = \(\frac{50}{3}\),

as numerator is greater we write as ( 16 X 3 + 2 by 3)= 16\(\frac{2}{3}\),

Therefore 5\(\frac{5}{7}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{3}{5}\) X

4\(\frac{2}{3}\) = 16\(\frac{2}{3}\).

Question 19.

You have 23\(\frac{1}{2}\) pounds of blueberries to store in freezer bags.

Each bag holds 3\(\frac{3}{4}\) pounds of blueberries.

What is the minimum number of freezer bags needed to store all the blueberries?

7 freezer bags minimum are needed to store all the blueberries.

Explanation:

Given I have 23\(\frac{1}{2}\) pounds of blueberries to

store in freezer bags. Each bag holds 3\(\frac{3}{4}\) pounds

of blueberries. Minimum number of freezer bags needed to

store all the blueberries 23\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 3\(\frac{3}{4}\) =

We write 23\(\frac{1}{2}\) as (23 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{47}{2}\),

and 3\(\frac{3}{4}\) as ( 3 X 4 + 3 by 4) = \(\frac{15}{4}\),

now we write \(\frac{15}{4}\) as reciprocal \(\frac{4}{15}\)

and multiply as \(\frac{47}{2}\) X \(\frac{4}{15}\) =

\(\frac{47 X 4}{2 X 15}\) = \(\frac{188}{30}\) as both

goes in 2, 2 X 94 = 188, 2 X 15 = 30, (94, 15) = \(\frac{94}{15}\) ,

as numerator is greater we write as (6 X 15 + 4 by 15) = 6\(\frac{4}{15}\),

So approximately we require 7 freezer bags minimum

needed to store all the blueberries.

Question 20.

How many scoops of seeds do you need to ﬁll both squirrel feeders?

7 scoops of seeds we need to fill both squirrel feeders,

Explanation:

Given a squirrel feeder holds 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) cups of seeds.

Another squirrel feeder holds 6\(\frac{7}{8}\) cups of seeds.

One scoop of seeds is 1\(\frac{5}{8}\) cups.

So first squirrel feeder needs 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{5}{8}\),

We write 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) as (4 X 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{9}{2}\)

and 1\(\frac{5}{8}\) = (1X 8 + 5 by 8) = \(\frac{13}{8}\),

now we write \(\frac{13}{8}\) reciprocal and multiply as

\(\frac{9}{2}\) X \(\frac{8}{13}\) = \(\frac{9 x 8}{2 X 13}\) =

\(\frac{72}{26}\) as both goes in 2, 2 X 36 = 72, 2 X 13 = 26, (36,13) =

\(\frac{36}{13}\),

Now second squirrel feeder needs 6\(\frac{7}{8}\) ÷ 1\(\frac{5}{8}\),

We write 6\(\frac{7}{8}\) as (6 X 8 + 7 by 8) = \(\frac{55}{8}\),

now we have 1\(\frac{5}{8}\) = (1X 8 + 5 by 8) = \(\frac{13}{8}\),

now we write \(\frac{13}{8}\) reciprocal and multiply as

\(\frac{55}{8}\) X \(\frac{8}{13}\) = \(\frac{55 X 8}{8 X 13}\) =

\(\frac{440}{104}\) as both goes in 8, 8 X 55 = 440, 8 X 13 = 104,

(55, 13) = \(\frac{55}{13}\), Now we have feeder 1 and feeder 2,

so total is \(\frac{36}{13}\) + \(\frac{55}{13}\) as

both have same denomiators we add numerators and write as

\(\frac{36 + 55}{13}\) = \(\frac{91}{13}\) as 91 goes

in 13( 13 X 7 = 91) we get \(\frac{91}{13}\) = 7,therefore

7 scoops of seeds we need to fill both squirrel feeders.

and multiply as \(\frac{5}{6}\) X \(\frac{21}{10}\) =

\(\frac{5 X 21}{6 X 10}\) = \(\frac{105}{60}\),

we can further simplify as both goes in 15, 15 X 7 = 105 and 15 X 4 = 60,

(7, 4)= \(\frac{7}{4}\) as numerator is greater we write as

(1 X 4 + 3 by 4) = 1\(\frac{3}{4}\), Therefore \(\frac{5}{6}\) ÷

\(\frac{10}{21}\) = \(\frac{7}{4}\) = 1\(\frac{3}{4}\).

\(\frac{35}{4}\) and 2\(\frac{7}{8}\) as (2 X 8 + 7 by 8) =

\(\frac{23}{8}\) now we write reciprocal of the fraction

\(\frac{23}{8}\) as \(\frac{8}{23}\)

and multiply as \(\frac{35}{4}\) X \(\frac{8}{23}\) =

\(\frac{35 X 8}{4 X 23}\) = \(\frac{280}{92}\),

as both goes in 4, 4 X 70 = 280, 4 X 23 = 92, (70, 23) = \(\frac{70}{23}\)

as numerator is greater we write as (3 X 23 + 1 by 23)= 3\(\frac{1}{23}\).

Explanation:

Given on a road trip, you notice that the gas tank is \(\frac{1}{4}\) full.

The gas tank can hold 18 gallons, and the vehicle averages

22 miles per gallon. Will I make it to my destination 110 miles

away before I run out of gas, First we calculate tank has

18 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{18}{4}\) , as both

goes in 2 we get 2 X 9 = 18, 2 X 2 = 4, (9, 2) = \(\frac{9}{2}\) gallon,

now we have the vehicle averages 22 miles per gallon means

22 X \(\frac{9}{2}\) = \(\frac{198}{2}\) as

it goes in 2 we get 2 X 99 = 198, 2 X 1 = 2, \(\frac{198}{2}\) =99,

as 99 is less than 110 miles no, I cannot make it to destination,

I will be running out of gas.

The final score for the dive is 73.47,

Explanation:

Given for a diving event, the highest and the lowest of seven scores

are discarded. Next, the total of the remaining scores is multiplied

by the degree of difficulty of the dive. That value is then multiplied

by 0.6 to determine the ﬁnal score.

After discarding the highest and the lowest of seven scores-

9.0, 7.0 we have remaining scores as 8, 7.5, 8, 8.5, 7.5,

now we add as 8 +7.5 + 8 +8.5 + 7.5 = 39.5, So the total of the

remaining scores is multiplied by the degree of difficulty

of the dive, given the difficulty of the dive as 3.1,

So 39.5 X 3.1 =

2\(\frac{3}{4}\) of walkway. Now longer, in inches,

is the length of the walkway than the width of the walkway is

5\(\frac{1}{2}\) – 2\(\frac{3}{4}\) first we write

mixed fractions into fractions before subtraction as

5\(\frac{1}{2}\) = (5 x 2 + 1 by 2) = \(\frac{11}{2}\) and

2\(\frac{3}{4}\) = (2 X 4 + 3 by 4) = \(\frac{11}{4}\),

So \(\frac{11}{2}\) – \(\frac{11}{4}\) ,now we make

both denominators same as 4 so we multiply numerator and

denominator by 2 for \(\frac{11}{2}\) = \(\frac{11 x 2}{2 X 2}\) =

\(\frac{22}{4}\) ,Now \(\frac{22}{4}\) – \(\frac{11}{4}\),

as denominators are same we subtract numerators and write as

\(\frac{22- 11}{4}\) = \(\frac{11}{4}\) inches.

Therefore, \(\frac{11}{4}\) inches in the length of the

walkway more than the width of the walkway.

Part B :

Now we will find many times longer in the length of the walkway than the

width of the walkway as \(\frac{11}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{11}{4}\),

now we write reciprocal and multiply as \(\frac{11}{2}\) X \(\frac{4}{11}\) =

\(\frac{11 X 4}{2 X 11}\) as both have 11 they get cancel,

we will get \(\frac{4}{2}\), as both goes in 2 we get 2 X 2 = 4,

2 X 1 = 2, (2, 1), \(\frac{4}{2}\) = 2,

therefore 2 times longer is the length of the walkway than the

width of the walkway.

Question 15.

A meteoroid moving at a constant speed travels 6\(\frac{7}{8}\) miles

in 30 seconds. How far does the meteoroid travel in 1 second?

The meteoroid travels in 1 second is \(\frac{11}{48}\) mile,

matches with G.

Explanation:

Given a meteoroid moving at a constant speed travels 6\(\frac{7}{8}\) miles

in 30 seconds, Now in 1 second the meteoroid travel is

6\(\frac{7}{8}\) ÷ 30 =

First we write mixed fraction as 6\(\frac{7}{8}\) = (6 X 8 + 7 by 8)

\(\frac{55}{8}\) now we divide with 30 as \(\frac{55}{8}\) ÷ 30 =

Now we write 30 as reciprocal as \(\frac{1}{30}\) and multiply as

\(\frac{55}{8}\) X \(\frac{1}{30}\) = \(\frac{55 X 1}{8 X 30}\) =

\(\frac{55}{240}\), now both goes in 5 as 5 X 11 = 55

and 5 X 48 = 240, (11, 48) = \(\frac{11}{48}\) miles,

therefore, the meteoroid travels in 1 second is \(\frac{11}{48}\) mile,

which matches with G.
