The worker has \(\frac{7}{12}\) of an orange left. How many more drinks can the worker garnish?

Write the fraction of orange left as a multiple of \(\frac{1}{12}\).

Answer:

The worker can garnish \(\frac{1}{12}\) more drinks,

\(\frac{7}{12}\) minus \(\frac{1}{2}\) means \(\frac{7}{12}\) – \(\frac{1}{2}\)

= \(\frac{1}{12}\), Orange left is 7 X \(\frac{1}{12}\).

Explanation:

Given a juice stand worker uses \(\frac{1}{2}\) of an orange to garnish each drink.

The worker has \(\frac{7}{12}\) of an orange left. So the worker can garnish more \(\frac{7}{12}\)

minus \(\frac{1}{2}\) means \(\frac{7}{12}\) – \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{1}{12}\),

Given \(\frac{7}{12}\) of an orange is left , to write orange left as a multiple of \(\frac{1}{12}\)

we have orange left as \(\frac{7}{12}\) so write it as 7 parts that are \(\frac{1}{12}\) of the whole,

\(\frac{6}{2}\) in addition equation as \(\frac{6}{2}\)=\(\frac{1}{2}\)+

\(\frac{1}{2}\)+\(\frac{1}{2}\)+\(\frac{1}{2}\)+\(\frac{1}{2}\)+

\(\frac{1}{2}\),so the multiplication equation is \(\frac{6}{2}\) represents 6 parts that are

\(\frac{1}{2}\) of the whole,\(\frac{6}{2}\)= 6 X \(\frac{1}{2}\).

Question 11.

**Which One Doesn’t Belong?**

Which expression does not belong with the other three?

Answer:

4 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) expression does not belong with the other three, as all the other expressions values results are same =\(\frac{5}{4}\) only 4 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) expression is not.

Explanation:

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

2. \(\frac{1}{4}\)+\(\frac{1}{4}\)+\(\frac{1}{4}\)+\(\frac{1}{4}\)=

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

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

4. 4 X \(\frac{1}{5}\)= \(\frac{4}{5}\)≠ \(\frac{5}{4}\)

So in the above expressions only 4 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) does not belong with the other three expressions.

You cut a loaf of zucchini bread into 20 equal slices. You and your friends eat \(\frac{3}{10}\) of the slices.

You want to put each leftover slice into its own bag. How many bags do you need?

Answer:

14 bags are needed.

Explanation :

Given a loaf of zucchini bread is cut into 20 equal slices and i ,friend eat \(\frac{3}{10}\) of the slices,

Total number of slices of zucchini bread =20, Number of slices ate = \(\frac{3}{10}\) means it says

out of 10 slices 3 were ate, so out of 20 slices 2 x 3= 6 slices were eaten. Number of slices left = 20 – 6 =14 slices

and one bag contains only one slice. Therefore number of bags needed are 14.

Question 14.

Is 46 a multiple of 45.

Answer:

No 46 is not a multiple of 45.

Explanation:

A multiple is a number that can be divided by another number a certain number of times without a remainder.

45 when divided by 46 a certain times will leave a remainder, So 46 is not a multiple of 45

or a factor is one of two or more numbers that divides a given number without a remainder.

As factors of 45 are 1,3,5,9,15 and factors of 46 are 1,2,23, both do not have common factors so 46 is not a multiple of 45.

leaves no remainder, So 3 is a factor of 75.

### Lesson 9.2 Understand Multiples of Fractions

Draw a model for each expression. Then write a multiplication expression to represent each model.

Answer:

The multiplication expression is \(\frac{2}{6}\) +\(\frac{2}{6}\) +\(\frac{2}{6}\) +

\(\frac{2}{6}\) = 4 X \(\frac{2}{6}\) =

\(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\)+ \(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\)+

\(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\)+ \(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\) =

8 X \(\frac{1}{6}\).

Explanation:

\(\frac{2}{6}\) +\(\frac{2}{6}\) +\(\frac{2}{6}\) +\(\frac{2}{6}\)

the multiplication equation is 4 parts that are \(\frac{2}{6}\) of the whole as 4 X \(\frac{2}{6}\)

\(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\)+ \(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\)+

\(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\)+ \(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\) =

8 X \(\frac{1}{6}\) the multiplication equation is 8 parts that are \(\frac{1}{6}\) of the whole as

8 X \(\frac{1}{6}\).

**Structure**

Compare your expressions. How are they the same? How are they different?

Same means the result of both expressions is same = \(\frac{8}{6}\)

Different means in one expression we take value of \(\frac{2}{6}\) 4 times and in another

expression we take \(\frac{1}{6}\) 8 times.

Explanation:

Same means \(\frac{2}{6}\) +\(\frac{2}{6}\) +\(\frac{2}{6}\) +\(\frac{2}{6}\) =

4 X \(\frac{2}{6}\) = \(\frac{8}{6}\) and \(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\)+

\(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\)+\(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\)+

\(\frac{1}{6}\) +\(\frac{1}{6}\) = 8 X \(\frac{1}{6}\) =\(\frac{8}{6}\) ,

both have results similar as \(\frac{8}{6}\), Different means here we are taking expressions as addition values of \(\frac{2}{6}\) by 4 times and in other expression we are taking addition values of \(\frac{1}{6}\) by 8 times.

7 X \(\frac{2}{4}\), First we write expression as a multiple of unit fraction

7 X 2 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) =14 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{14}{4}\)

Now 5 X \(\frac{3}{4}\) is also written as a multiple of unit fraction 5 X 3 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) =

15 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) =\(\frac{15}{4}\) comparing \(\frac{14}{4}\) and

\(\frac{15}{4}\) as the denominators are same same 4 and in numerators 15 is great than 14,

Explanation:

4 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) already the expression is in multiple of unit fraction,

we write as \(\frac{4}{8}\) and even the expression 4 X \(\frac{1}{10}\)

is in multiple of unit fraction we write as \(\frac{4}{10}\) because in order to compare

the fractions we must first turn their different denominators into the same denominators to make

denominators same we multiply 4 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) by 10 /10 the value will not change =

4 X 10 X \(\frac{1}{80}\)=40 X \(\frac{1}{80}\) = \(\frac{40}{80}\)

now other expression 4 X \(\frac{1}{10}\) by 8/8 so that the value = 4 X 8 X \(\frac{1}{80}\) =

32 X \(\frac{1}{80}\) now as denominator are same we can compare only numerators

\(\frac{40}{80}\) with \(\frac{32}{80}\) as 40 is greater than 32,

So \(\frac{4}{8}\) is greater than > \(\frac{4}{10}\) ,

4 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) is greater than > 4 X \(\frac{1}{10}\).

Question 12.

Answer:

First we write expressions as a multiple of unit fraction \(\frac{4}{3}\) X 9 =

9 X 4 X \(\frac{1}{3}\) =36 X \(\frac{1}{3}\) =\(\frac{36}{3}\)

now other expression 6 X \(\frac{6}{3}\) as = 6 X 6 X \(\frac{1}{3}\) =

36 X \(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{36}{3}\) ,

As denominator is same in the both expression we compare numerators and even

the numerators are same in both the expression so given both products are equal .

Therefore \(\frac{4}{3}\) X 9 =, is equal to 6 X \(\frac{6}{3}\).

Question 13.

**YOU BE THE TEACHER**

Your friend says the product of 6 and \(\frac{5}{8}\) is \(\frac{5}{48}\). Is your friend correct? Explain.

Answer:

No she is not correct as the product of 6 X \(\frac{5}{8}\) ≠ \(\frac{5}{48}\).

Explanation:

We write the expression as a product 6 and \(\frac{5}{8}\) = 6 X \(\frac{5}{8}\)

to ﬁnd the product of a whole number and a fraction we multiply the numerator by the whole number.

The denominator stays the same. 6 X 5 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) =30 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) =

\(\frac{30}{8}\) now comparing with \(\frac{5}{48}\) as denominators are different in order

to compare the fractions we must first turn their different denominators into the *same* denominators

to make denominators same we multiply \(\frac{30}{8}\) with numerator and denominator

as 6= \(\frac{30}{8}\) X \(\frac{6}{6}\) we get \(\frac{180}{48}\),

now comparing with \(\frac{5}{48}\) being denominators same, now numerators 180,5 both are

not same so friend is not correct as the product of 6 X \(\frac{5}{8}\) ≠ \(\frac{5}{48}\).

Question 14.

**Open-Ended**

The product of a whole number and a fraction is \(\frac{24}{10}\). What could the two factors be?

Answer:

The product is given as \(\frac{24}{10}\) and the two factors can be (1,24) or (2,12) or (3,8) or (4,6)

with multiple of \(\frac{1}{10}\).

Explanation:

Given the product of a whole number and a fraction is \(\frac{24}{10}\) to find the two factors,

we first write the product as whole with multiple of unit fraction,\(\frac{24}{10}\),

we write as 24 X \(\frac{1}{10}\), now the whole part is 24 we find the factors for 24,

two more numbers that multiply to make 24 are 1 x 24 = 2 x 12 = 3 x 8 = 4 x 6 = 24.

This means the factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 24 so the two factors can be

(1,24) X \(\frac{1}{10}\) or (2,12) X \(\frac{1}{10}\) or (3,8) X \(\frac{1}{10}\)

or (4,6) X \(\frac{1}{10}\) = 24 X \(\frac{1}{10}\) = \(\frac{24}{10}\).

A short roller-coaster track is \(\frac{3}{10}\) mile long. A longer roller-coaster track is about 4 times as long as the short track. About how long is the longer roller-coaster track?

Multiply the shorter roller-coaster track length by 4.

So, the longer roller-coaster track is about _\(\frac{12}{10}\) _ miles long or \(\frac{6}{5}\) miles long

Answer:

The longer roller-coaster track is about \(\frac{12}{10}\) miles long or \(\frac{6}{5}\).

Explanation:

Given a short roller-coaster track is \(\frac{3}{10}\) mile long and longer roller-coaster

track is about 4 times as long as the short track to find how long is the longer roller-coaster track

we multiply short roller-coaster track \(\frac{3}{10}\) mile by 4, 4 X \(\frac{3}{10}\)

now we write expression as a multiple of unit fraction so 4 X 3 X \(\frac{1}{10}\) =

12 X \(\frac{1}{10}\) =\(\frac{12}{10}\) as numerator and denominator

can be further simplified as both can be divided by 2 making it as \(\frac{6}{5}\).

Explanation:

Given the Renaissance Tower in Dallas, Texas is \(\frac{27}{100}\) kilometer tall and

The Burj Khalifa is about 3 times as tall as the Renaissance Tower, To find how tall is the Burj Khalifa

we multiply the Renaissance Tower in Dallas, Texas length by 3,

3 X \(\frac{27}{100}\) we write expression as a multiple of unit fraction

3 X 27 X \(\frac{1}{100}\) = 81 X \(\frac{1}{100}\) =\(\frac{81}{100}\),

So the Burj Khalifa is \(\frac{81}{100}\) kilometers tall.

Question 16.

You water 6 plants using \(\frac{3}{5}\) liter of water for each. How many liters of water do you use?

Between which two whole numbers does your answer lie?

Answer:

\(\frac{18}{5}\) liters of water is used, The answer will lie in between 3 and 4.

Explanation:

Given \(\frac{3}{5}\) liter of water for each is watered, for 6 plants total number of liters of water

used is 6 X \(\frac{3}{5},now we write as multiple of unit fraction as 6 X 3 X [latex]\frac{1}{5}\) =

18 X \(\frac{1}{5}\)= \(\frac{18}{5}\) liters of water is used.

Now we divide \(\frac{18}{5}\) we get the value as 3.6,means between 3 and 4 whole numbers our answer will lie.

Question 17.

**DIG DEEPER!**

You have 6 cups of strawberries. You want to make 4 strawberry-banana smoothies and 4 strawberry-kiwi smoothies. Each smoothie needs \(\frac{2}{3}\) cup of strawberries. Do you have enough? If not, how many more cups of strawberries do you need?

Answer:

Yes we have enough cups of strawberries, we dont require more cups of strawberries.

Explanation:

Given to make each smoothie we need \(\frac{2}{3}\) cup of strawberries

first to make 4 strawberry-banana smoothies we need 4 X \(\frac{2}{3}\) cup of strawberries

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

Now similarly for making 4 strawberry-kiwi smoothies we need 4 X \(\frac{2}{3}\)

cup of strawberries = 4 X 2 X \(\frac{1}{3}\)= 8 X \(\frac{1}{3}\) =

\(\frac{8}{3}\),Now total cups of strawberries requried to make smoothie is

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

2 X 8 X \(\frac{1}{3}\)=16 X \(\frac{1}{3}\)= \(\frac{16}{3}\) totals cups

of strawberries required to make smoothies. Now we compare \(\frac{16}{3}\) with 6,

To compare first we make both denominators same so we multiply 6 with \(\frac{3}{3}\)=

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

\(\frac{18}{3}\) as both the denominators are same we compare

\(\frac{16}{3}\) and \(\frac{18}{3}\) by seeing numerator

16 is less than 18 means we have enough cups of strawberries.

Question 11.

Answer:

9 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) > \(\frac{9}{12}\)

Explanation:

9 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) already it is multiple of unit fraction we write it as \(\frac{9}{5}\)

and 9 X \(\frac{1}{12}\) is also a multiple of unit fraction we write it as \(\frac{9}{12}\)

now comparing first we make both denominators same so the multiples of 5 are 5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55,60,65

and multiples of 12 are 12,24,36,48,60,72 so the least common multiple of both 5 and 12 is 60 ,

So to get denominator 60 we multiply top and bottom by 12 for \(\frac{9}{5}\) =

\(\frac{9}{5}\) X \(\frac{12}{12}\)= \(\frac{108}{60}\) ,

So to get denominator 60 we multiply top and bottom by 5 for \(\frac{9}{12}\)=

\(\frac{9}{12}\) X \(\frac{5}{5}\)= \(\frac{45}{60}\)

Now comparing \(\frac{108}{60}\) with \(\frac{45}{60}\) as both denominator are same,

As we see numerator it is clear that 108 is more than 45 so \(\frac{108}{60}\) > \(\frac{45}{60}\) ,

9 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) > \(\frac{9}{12}\).

Question 12.

Answer:

\(\frac{6}{10}\)X 4 < 9 X \(\frac{3}{10}\).

\(\frac{6}{10}\)X 4 we write as multiple of unit fraction 4 X 6 X \(\frac{1}{10}\)=

24 X \(\frac{1}{10}\) =\(\frac{24}{10}\) and 9 X \(\frac{3}{10}\) as

9 X 3 X \(\frac{1}{10}\)= 27 X \(\frac{1}{10}\)=\(\frac{27}{10}\),

We can compare both as denominators of both are 10 we compare numerators as 24 with 27

as 27 is great,\(\frac{24}{10}\) < \(\frac{27}{10}\),

\(\frac{6}{10}\) X 4 < 9 X \(\frac{3}{10}\).

Explanation:

Given Newton has 16 baseball cards and Descartes has \(\frac{1}{4}\) as many cards as

Newton so\(\frac{1}{4}\) of 16 = 16 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) cards it is already

as multiple of unit fraction we can write as \(\frac{16}{4}\) further can be simplified

because 16 can be divide by 4 so we get as 4 means Descartes has 4 cards.Now my friend has

\(\frac{1}{2}\) as many cards as Descartes So Descartes has 4 cards means my friend has

\(\frac{1}{2}\) out of 4= 4 X \(\frac{1}{2}\) as it is already a multiple of unit fracrtion,

we take it as \(\frac{4}{2}\) further we can simplify as 4 is divisiblle by 2 we get 2 cards.

Newton has 16 baseball cards,Descartes has 4 baseball cards and my friend has 2 baseball cards,

over all there are total 22 baseball cards.

Question 18.

Answer:

=81 with 4 as remainder.

Explanation:

Step 1:Start by setting it up with the divisor 7 on the left side and the dividend 571 on the right side,

Step 2: The divisor (7) does not goes into the first digit of the dividend (5), So we take second digit also , The divisor (7) goes into the two digits of the dividend (57) by 8 time(s),there fore put 8 on the top

8

Step 3: Multiply the divisor by the result in the previous step. Therefore, put 8 on top (7 x 9 = 56) and write that answer below the dividend.

8

56

Step 4: Subtract the result in the previous step from the two digits of the dividend (57 -56 = 1) and write the answer below.

Use models to help you complete the table.

**Structure**

How does the Distributive Property relate to your models? Explain.

Answer:

Explanation:

According to the distributive property, multiplying the sum of two or more addends by a number

will give the same result as multiplying each addend individually by the number and then adding the products together.

We use distribute property while relating the models first we draw each multiplying addend individually and

then add the products together to give the result.

Example : 2 X 1 \(\frac{3}{8}\) using the distributive property we write

2 X 1 \(\frac{3}{8}\) as 2 X ( 1 + \(\frac{3}{8}\) )here first we draw model of

2 X 1 then we draw model of 2 X \(\frac{3}{8}\) then we add the products together as

2 + \(\frac{6}{8}\)= 2 + \(\frac{3}{4}\)=\(\frac{11}{4}\).

Question 12.

**DIG DEEPER!**

Without multiplying, can you tell which expression is greater, ? Explain.

Answer:

5 X 6 \(\frac{1}{4}\) < 6 X 5 \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Explanation:

By drawing models also we can say

If the denominators are the same, then the fraction with the greater numerator is the greater fraction.

The fraction with the lesser numerator is the lesser fraction, But first we write the mixed number as a fraction

so in 5 X 6 \(\frac{1}{4}\), 6 \(\frac{1}{4}\)= 6+ \(\frac{1}{4}\)=

(6 X 4 +1) by 4 = \(\frac{25}{4}\) now we multiply it with the whole as

5 X \(\frac{25}{4}\) now we write the mixed fraction 5 \(\frac{1}{4}\)

as 5+ \(\frac{1}{4}\) = 5 x 4 +1 by 4=5 \(\frac{21}{4}\)

now we multiply it with the whole as 6 X \(\frac{21}{4}\) ,

Now comparing 5 X \(\frac{25}{4}\) and 6 X \(\frac{21}{4}\)

in both denominators are same and numerators 5 X \(\frac{25}{4}\) is less than

6 X \(\frac{21}{4}\) so 5 X 6 \(\frac{1}{4}\) < 6 X 5 \(\frac{1}{4}\)

**Think and Grow: Modeling Real Life**

**Example**

An elephant sleeps 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) hours in 1 day. A koala sleeps 6 times as long as the elephant in the same day. How many hours does the koala sleep that day?

Multiply the number of hours the elephant sleeps by 6.

Answer:

The koala sleeps 5 hours that day.

Explanation:

First we write mixed fraction as fraction so 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\) =( 2 X 2 + 1 ) by 2

= \(\frac{5}{2}\) , now we multiply with whole number 2 = 2 X \(\frac{5}{2}\) =

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

further it can be simplified as both 10,2 can be divided by 2 so \(\frac{10}{2}\) = 5 hours that day.

Answer:

The large bag has \(\frac{105}{8}\) cups of popcorn or 13 \(\frac{1}{8}\) cups of popcorn.

Explanation:

Given A small bag of popcorn has 1\(\frac{7}{8}\) cups of popcorn so first we write mixed fraction

as fraction as 1 \(\frac{7}{8}\)= ( 1 X 8 + 7 ) by 8 =\(\frac{15}{8}\) ,as a large bag has

7 times as many cups of popcorn as the small bag so 7 times \(\frac{15}{8}\)=

7 X 15 X \(\frac{1}{8}\)=105 X \(\frac{1}{8}\)=\(\frac{105}{8}\) cups of popcorn.

We can write the product as mixed fraction as 8 goes in 13 times.

13 will be our whole number 8 X 13 is 104 and we have 1 left over (105−104).

1 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 8= \(\frac{105}{8}\)=

13 \(\frac{1}{8}\) cups of popcorn.

**DIG DEEPER!**

A deli worker prepares 4 packages of meat. Each package contains 3\(\frac{1}{3}\) pounds of meat.

Your friend says the deli worker uses between 12 and 13 pounds of meat. Is your friend correct? Explain.

Answer:

No, friend is not correct as deli worker uses between 13 and 14 pounds of meat,

not between 12 and 13 pounds of meat.

Explanation:

Given each package contains 3\(\frac{1}{3}\) pounds of meat.

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

now deli worker prepares 4 packages of meat so 4 times \(\frac{10}{3}\)=

4 X 10 X \(\frac{1}{3}\)= 40 X \(\frac{1}{3}\)=\(\frac{40}{3}\) ,

we will write the product as mixed fraction as 3 goes in 13 times. 13 will be our whole number

3 X 13 is 39 and we have 1 left over (40−39). 1 will be our numerator and our denominator

will be the same 3= \(\frac{105}{8}\)= 13 \(\frac{1}{3}\),

so the whole number is greater than 13 means deli worker uses between 13 and 14 pounds of meat

not between 12 and 13 pounds of meat.

Answer:

Athlete runs more than 80 miles in 1 week so he meets his goal.

Explanation:

Given an athlete runs 5\(\frac{3}{4}\) miles 2 times each day, First we write mixed fraction

as fraction as ( 5 X 4 +3) by 4 =\(\frac{23}{4}\) now we multiply by 2 ,

2 X \(\frac{23}{4}\)= 2 X 23 X \(\frac{1}{4}\)=46 x \(\frac{1}{4}\)=

\(\frac{46}{4}\), Now for 1 week it is 7 X \(\frac{46}{4}\)= 7 X 46 X \(\frac{1}{4}\)=

322 X \(\frac{1}{4}\)= \(\frac{322}{4}\) now we will write the product as mixed fraction

as 4 goes in 80 times. 80 will be our whole number 4 X 80 is 320 and we have 2 left over (322−320).

2 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 4= \(\frac{322}{4}\)= 80 \(\frac{2}{4}\) ,

As 80 \(\frac{2}{4}\) is greater than 80, athlete runs more than 80 miles in 1 week he meets his goal.

4 X \(\frac{34}{5}\) now we write in unit fraction and multiply 4 X 34 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) =

136 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) = \(\frac{136}{5}\), now we can write the product as mixed fraction as

5 goes in 27 times. 5 X 27 is 135 , 27 will be our whole number and (136−135) we have 1 left over.

1 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 5 = \(\frac{136}{5}\)=

27 \(\frac{1}{5}\).

Question 6.

Answer:

8 \(\frac{20}{100}\) X 10 = \(\frac{8200}{100}\) = 82.

Explanation:

First we write the mixed number as a fraction then multiply, so 8 \(\frac{20}{100}\) =

8 + \(\frac{20}{100}\) = ( 8 X 100 + 20 ) by 100 = \(\frac{820}{100}\)

now we multiply it with the whole, 100 X \(\frac{820}{100}\) now we write in unit fraction

and multiply 10 X 820 X \(\frac{1}{100}\) = 8200 X \(\frac{1}{100}\) =

\(\frac{8200}{100}\), Now the fraction can be further divided by 100 as 8200,100

both goes in 100 after dividing by 100 it becomes as 82.

Question 7.

**Reasoning**

Without calculating, is the product of 7 and 5\(\frac{3}{4}\) greater than or less than 35? Explain.

Answer:

7 X 5 \(\frac{3}{4}\) is greater than ( > ) 35.

Explanation:

Given to compare between 7 X 5 \(\frac{3}{4}\) and 35, first we take 7 X 5 \(\frac{3}{4}\)

to this expression if we apply distributive property means if multiplying the sum of two or more addends

by a number will give the same result as multiplying each addend individually by the number and

then adding the products together. example a X b \(\frac{c}{d}\) = a X b + a X \(\frac{c}{d}\)

So 7 X 5 \(\frac{3}{4}\) = 7 X 5 + 7 X \(\frac{3}{4}\) means 35 + 7 X \(\frac{3}{4}\)

So by comparing left side it is addition of 35 plus some value ,it will be more than 35 only and right hand side

it it 35 so obiviously 7 X 5 \(\frac{3}{4}\) is greater than ( > ) 35.

Question 8.

**YOU BE THE TEACHER**

Your friend ﬁnds the product of 4 and 2\(\frac{8}{10}\). Is your friend correct? Explain.

Answer:

Yes friend is correct, because the value is same as 11 \(\frac{2}{10}\) .

Explanation:

To caluculate the value of 4 X 2 \(\frac{8}{10}\) , First we write the mixed number as a

fraction then multiply, so 2 \(\frac{8}{10}\) = 2 + \(\frac{8}{10}\) =

( 2 X 10 + 8 ) by 10 = \(\frac{28}{10}\) now we multiply it with the whole,

4 X \(\frac{28}{10}\) now we write in unit fraction and multiply 4 X 28 X \(\frac{1}{10}\)=

112 X \(\frac{1}{10}\) = \(\frac{112}{10}\), now we can write the product as mixed fraction

as 10 goes in 11 times. 10 X 11 is 110 , 11 will be our whole number and (112−110) we have 2 left over.

2 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 10= \(\frac{112}{10}\)=

11 \(\frac{2}{10}\) is same as friend, So friend is correct.

Question 9.

**Number Sense**

Between which two whole numbers does the product of 9 and 7 \(\frac{1}{8}\) lie?

Answer:

The product of 9 and 7 \(\frac{1}{8}\) lies in between 64 and 65.

Explanation:

First we write the mixed number 7 \(\frac{1}{8}\) as a fraction then multiply, so 7 \(\frac{1}{8}\) =

7 + \(\frac{1}{8}\) = 7 X 8 + 1 by 8 = \(\frac{57}{8}\) now we multiply it with the whole,

9 X \(\frac{57}{8}\) now we write in unit fraction and multiply 9 X 57 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) =

513 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) = \(\frac{513}{8}\), now we can write the product as mixed fraction as

8 goes in 64 times. 8 X 64 is 512 , 64 will be our whole number and (513−512) we have 1 left over.

1 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 8 = \(\frac{513}{8}\)= 64

\(\frac{1}{8}\). Any how we got 64 whole number and next whole number is 65 means

the product of 9 and 7 \(\frac{1}{8}\) lies in between 64 and 65.

Question 10.

**Modeling Real Life**

Athlete A holds a 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) – kilogram plate while doing squats. Athlete B holds a plate that is 4 times heavier than Athlete A’s. How many kilograms is the plate held by Athlete B?

Answer:

Athlete B holds 10 kilograms of plate while doing squats.

Explanation:

Given Athlete A hold a 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\) kilogram plate while doing squats,

Athlete B holds a plate that is 4 times heavier than Athlete A’s, So Athlete B holds

4 X 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\), First we write the mixed number as a fraction then multiply,

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

now we multiply it with the whole, 4 X \(\frac{5}{2}\) now we write in unit fraction and

multiply 4 X 5 X \(\frac{1}{2}\) = 20 X \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{20}{2}\)

as 20,2 goes by 2 we further divide both by 2 we get 10,1 = \(\frac{20}{2}\) = 10,

therefore Athlete B holds 10 kilograms of plate while doing squats.

Question 12.

Answer:

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

Explanation:

First we write the mixed numbers into fractions and subtract, So 9 \(\frac{1}{4}\) =

9 +\(\frac{1}{4}\) = (9 x 4 + 1) by 4 = \(\frac{37}{4}\) and 6 \(\frac{1}{4}\) =

6 + \(\frac{1}{4}\) = 6 X 4 + 1 by 4 = \(\frac{25}{4}\) now subtracting

\(\frac{37}{4}\) – \(\frac{25}{4}\) to subtract a fraction from another

we need to first make sure both fractions have the same denominator as both denominators

have same value 4 now we can subtract one numerator from the other to make one fraction as 37 – 25 by 4 = \(\frac{12}{4}\) as 12, 4 goes by 4 we further can divide both by 4 we get 12,1 = \(\frac{12}{4}\) = 3 .

Question 13.

Answer:

= \(\frac{11}{3}\) = 3 \(\frac{2}{3}\)

Explanation:

First we write the mixed numbers into fractions and subtract, So 6 \(\frac{1}{3}\) =

6 +\(\frac{1}{3}\) =(6 x 3 + 1) by 3 = \(\frac{19}{3}\) and 2 \(\frac{2}{3}\) =

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

\(\frac{19}{3}\) – \(\frac{8}{3}\) to subtract a fraction from another

we need to first make sure both fractions have the same denominator as both denominators

have same value 3 now we can subtract one numerator from the other to make one fraction as 19 – 8 by 3

= \(\frac{11}{3}\) since the numerator is greater than the denominator,

we can further simplify it into a mixed fraction as 3 goes in 3 times. 3 X 3 is 9 , 3 will be our

whole number and (11−9) we have 2 left over. 2 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 3

= \(\frac{11}{3}\) = 3 \(\frac{2}{3}\) .

Question 14.

Answer:

= \(\frac{78}{12}\) = 6 \(\frac{6}{12}\) or

\(\frac{78}{12}\) = \(\frac{39}{6}\) = \(\frac{13}{2}\) = 6 \(\frac{1}{2}\).

Explanation:

First we write the mixed numbers into fractions and subtract, So 8 \(\frac{4}{12}\) =

8 +\(\frac{4}{12}\) = ( 8 x 12 + 4 ) by 12 = \(\frac{100}{12}\) and 1 \(\frac{10}{12}\) = 1 + \(\frac{10}{12}\) = 1 X 12 + 10 by 12 = \(\frac{22}{12}\) now subtracting \(\frac{100}{12}\) – \(\frac{22}{12}\) to subtract a fraction from another we need to first make sure both fractions

have the same denominator as both denominators have same value 3 now we can subtract one numerator

from the other to make one fraction as 100 – 22 by 12 = \(\frac{78}{12}\) since the numerator

is greater than the denominator , we can further simplify it into a mixed fraction as 12 goes in 6 times.

12 X 6 is 72 , 6 will be our whole number and (78−12) we have 6 left over. 6 will be our numerator and

our denominator will be the same 12, 6 \(\frac{6}{12}\) , Further \(\frac{78}{12}\)

can be simplified as 78,12 both goes by 2 making them as 39, 6=\(\frac{39}{6}\),

even further \(\frac{39}{6}\) can be simplified as 39,6 both goes by 3 making them as 13,2

=\(\frac{13}{2}\), Since the numerator is greater than the denominator , we can further simplify

it into a mixed fraction as 2 goes in 6 times. 6 X 2 is 12 , 6 will be our whole number and (13−12) we have 1 left over.

1 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 3 = \(\frac{78}{12}\) =

6 \(\frac{6}{12}\) or \(\frac{78}{12}\) = \(\frac{39}{6}\) = \(\frac{13}{2}\) =

6 \(\frac{1}{2}\).

You want to make 3 batches of the recipe. Explain how to find how much of each ingredient you need.

**Reasoning**

Explain how you can tell whether you need more than or less than 6 cups of blueberries without calculating

Answer:

To make 3 batches of recipe we require \(\frac{21}{4}\) pounds of strawberries or

5 \(\frac{1}{4}\) pounds of strawberries required,

\(\frac{3}{2}\) cups of orange juice or 1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) cups of orange juice,

12 tablespoons of lemon juice,12 tablespoons of honey and

\(\frac{27}{4}\) cups of blue berries are required or 6 \(\frac{3}{4}\) cups of blueberries are required.

We require more than 6 cups of blueberries why because if we see product required is

3 X 2 \(\frac{1}{4}\) cups of blue berries without calculating , Applying distributive property

we get (3 X 2 ) + ( 3 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) ) = 6 + ( 3 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) ) it clearly shows that

we require more than 6 cups of blueberries.

Explanation:

Given to make 1 batch of Recipe Ladybug Ice pops we require 1 \(\frac{3}{4}\) pounds of strawberries ,

\(\frac{1}{2}\) cup of orange juice , 4 tablespoons of lemon juice, 4 tablespoons of honey,

2 \(\frac{1}{4}\) cups of blue berries.

To find out how much of each ingredient needed to make 3 batches of recipe we multiply each ingredient with 3.

Strawberries needed are 3 X 1 \(\frac{3}{4}\), First we write the mixed number as a

fraction then multiply so 1 \(\frac{3}{4}\) = ( 1 X 4 + 3 ) by 4 = \(\frac{7}{4}\) ,

so 3 X \(\frac{7}{4}\) now we write in unit fraction and multiply 3 X 7 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) =

21 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{21}{4}\) pounds of strawberries required,

Since the numerator is greater than the denominator , we can further simplify it into a mixed fraction as

4 goes in 5 times. 5 X 4 is 20 , 5 will be our whole number and (21−20) we have 1 left over.

1 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 4 =5 \(\frac{1}{4}\)

pounds of strawberries required,

Orange juice required 3 X \(\frac{1}{2}\) already it is in unit fraction

so we require \(\frac{3}{2}\) cups of orange juice Since the numerator is greater than the denominator ,

we can further simplify it into a mixed fraction as 2 goes in 1 times. 1 X 2 is 2, 1 will be our whole number and (3-2),

we have 1 left over. 1 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same

2 = 1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) cups of orange juice.

Lemon juice required is 3 X 4 = 12 tablespoons of lemon juice, 3 X 4 = 12 tablespoons of honey,

now blue berries required are 3 X 2 \(\frac{1}{4}\) cups, First we write the mixed number as a

fraction then multiply so 2 \(\frac{1}{4}\) = ( 2 X 4 + 1 ) by 4 = \(\frac{9}{4}\) ,

now 3 X \(\frac{9}{4}\) now we write in unit fraction and multiply 3 X 9 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) =

27 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{27}{4}\) cups of blue berries are required,

Since the numerator is greater than the denominator , we can further simplify it into a mixed fraction as

4 goes in 6 times. 6 X 4 is 24, 6 will be our whole number and (27-24) we have 3 left over.

3 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 4 = 6 \(\frac{3}{4}\) cups of blueberries are required.

Now comparing blueberries we require more than 6 cups of blueberries why because we use is

3 X 2 \(\frac{1}{4}\) cups of blue berries are required without calculating,

Applying distributive property we get (3 X 2 ) +( 3 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) )=

6 +( 3 X \(\frac{1}{4}\)), it clearly shows that we require more than 6 cups of blueberries.

To convert a temperature from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, multiply the Celsius temperature by \(\frac{9}{5}\), then add 32. What is the temperature shown by the thermometer in degrees Fahrenheit?

Answer:

The temperature shown by the thermometer is 50^{0} Fahrenheit.

Explanation:

We know to convert a temperature from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit is Fahrenheit =

Celsius temperature X \(\frac{9}{5}\) + 32 .

So multiply the Celsius temperature by \(\frac{9}{5}\), then add 32,

Given the Celsius temperature as 10^{0 }in the figure above, First we write \(\frac{9}{5}\) in unit fraction and

multiply by Celsius temperature so \(\frac{9}{5}\)=9 X \(\frac{1}{5}\)

now we multiply by 10 as 10 X 9 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) = 90 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) =

\(\frac{90}{5}\) this value can be further simplified as 90,5 both goes by 5 making them as 18,1,

Now we got result as 18 , We add 18 + 32 we will get 50^{0 }Fahrenheit.

To convert a temperature from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, Let us take p as multiply of

Celsius temperature by \(\frac{9}{5}\), Now we take f as p+32,

First we write \(\frac{9}{5}\) in unit fraction and multiply by Celsius temperature,

so \(\frac{9}{5}\)=9 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) now multiply by 10 = 10 X 9 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) =

90 X \(\frac{1}{5}\) = \(\frac{90}{5}\) this value we take as p this can be further simplified

as 90,5 both goes by 5 making them as 18, Now we got p as 18 we add 32 to p ,

we get f, So f = 18 + 32 = 50^{0

Question 2.

You make a friendship bracelet with 3 pink strings and 2 blue strings. Each string is 3\(\frac{3}{4}\) feet long.

How many feet of string do you use?

Answer:

\(\frac{75}{4}\) feet long strings is used or 18 \(\frac{3}{4}\) feet long strings is used.

Explanation:

Given to make a friendship bracelet we use 3 pink strings , 2 blue strings means total 5 strings are needed

and each string is 3\(\frac{3}{4}\) feet long, First we convert mixed fraction into fraction as

( 3 X 4 + 3 ) by 4 = \(\frac{15}{4}\) ,Now we will convert into unit fraction as 15 X \(\frac{1}{4}\)

now we multiply with 5 , 5 X 15 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) =\(\frac{75}{4}\),

since the numerator is greater than the denominator , we can further simplify it into a mixed fraction as

4 goes in 18 times. 18 X 4 is 72, 18 will be our whole number and (75-72) we have 3 left over.

3 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 4 = 18 \(\frac{3}{4}\),

So \(\frac{75}{4}\) feet long strings is used or 18 \(\frac{3}{4}\) feet long strings is used.

Question 3.

A smoothie store worker makes 4 peanut butter banana smoothies and 2 fruit smoothies. The worker uses \(\frac{2}{3}\) cup of bananas in each smoothie. How many cups of bananas does the worker need?

Answer:

The worker needed \(\frac{12}{3}\) cups of bananas or 4 cups of bananas are needed to make smoothie.

Explanation:

Given a smoothie store worker makes 4 peanut butter banana smoothies and 2 fruit smoothies.

The worker uses \(\frac{2}{3}\) cup of bananas in each smoothie so the number of cups of bananas

the worker needed are 4 X latex]\frac{2}{3}[/latex] plus 2 X \(\frac{2}{3}\) first we convert

both into unit fractions and multiply 4 X 2 X \(\frac{1}{3}\) = 8 X \(\frac{1}{3}\) =

\(\frac{8}{3}\) of peanut butter banana smoothies and 2 X 2 X \(\frac{1}{3}\) =

4 X \(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{4}{3}\) fruit smoothies, now we add both \(\frac{8}{3}\) +

\(\frac{4}{3}\) as both denominators are same we add numerators as 8 + 4 =12 as numerator and

denominator as 3 = \(\frac{12}{3}\) as numerator is greater than denominator further can be simplified and

12 divides by 3 gives 4 with 0 remainder so the worker needed \(\frac{12}{3}\) cups of bananas or

4 cups of bananas are needed to make smoothie.

Question 4.

Your friend walks her dog for \(\frac{1}{4}\) mile each day. She then runs 2\(\frac{3}{4}\) miles each day.

How many total miles does she walk her dog and run in 1 week?

Answer:

Total 21 miles my friend walks her dog and run in 1 week.

Explanation:

Given my friend walks her dog for \(\frac{1}{4}\) mile each day , She then runs

2\(\frac{3}{4}\) miles each day. So in each day she walk her dog and run is

\(\frac{1}{4}\) mile + 2\(\frac{3}{4}\) miles, Then we multiply with

7 because we have to calculate for 1 week. First we convert mixed fraction into fraction

2 \(\frac{3}{4}\) , ( 2 X 4 + 3 ) by 4 = \(\frac{11}{4}\), Now we add with

\(\frac{1}{4}\) + \(\frac{11}{4}\) = \(\frac{12}{4}\)

as numerator is greater than denominator further can be simplified and 12 divides by 4

gives 3 with 0 remainder, so 3 miles for each day, Now for 1 week it is 7 X 3 = 21 miles.

My friend walks 21 miles her dog and run in 1 week.

Question 5.

Hair donations must be 12 inches longer. Your friend’s hair is 7 inches long. Her hair grows

about \(\frac{1}{2}\) inch each month. Can she donate her hair in 8 months?

Answer:

No friend cannot donate her hair in 8 months as in 8 months it grows to 11 inches long and for

hair donations it must be 12 inches longer.

Explanation:

Given friend’s hair is 7 inches long. Her hair grows about \(\frac{1}{2}\) inch each month.

In 8 months it grows 8 X \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{8}{2}\) as numerator is

greater than denominator further can be simplified and 8 divides by 2 gives 4 with 0 remainder,

in 8 months it will grow 4 inches , So after 8 months it will be 7 + 4 =11 inches long as 11 is less than 12

and hair donations must be 12 inches longer so friend cannot donate her hair in 8 months.

Question 6.

Today you walk \(\frac{6}{10}\) mile from the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial to the Washington Monument. Tomorrow you will walk about 4 times as far from the Washington Monument to the White House. About how much farther will you walk tomorrow?

Answer:

Tomorrow i will walk father \(\frac{18}{10}\) miles or \(\frac{9}{5}\) miles or 1 \(\frac{4}{5}\) .

Explanation:

Given today i walked \(\frac{6}{10}\) mile from the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial

to the Washington Monument, Tomorrow i will walk about 4 times as far from the Washington Monument

to the White House , So number of miles walked tomorrow will be 4 X \(\frac{6}{10}\)

first we write in unit fraction 4 X 6 X \(\frac{1}{10}\) = 24 X \(\frac{1}{10}\) =

\(\frac{24}{10}\) as numerator is greater than denominator further can be simplified as

24,10 both can be divided by 2 gives 12,5 so \(\frac{24}{10}\) = \(\frac{12}{5}\)

now farther i will walk tomorrow will be \(\frac{24}{10}\) – \(\frac{6}{10}\) as denominator

of both are same we substract numerators , 24 – 6 =18 and denominator will remain same 10 =

\(\frac{18}{10}\) miles or further can be simplified and 18,10 both can be divided by by 2

gives 9, 5 = \(\frac{18}{10}\) miles = \(\frac{9}{5}\) miles as numerator is greater than

denominator we can write it in mixed fraction as 5 goes in 1 times. 5 X 1 is 5 , 1 will be our whole number and

(9−5) we have 4 left over. 4 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 5 = 1 \(\frac{4}{5}\) .

A 20-pound dog and a 60-pound dog eat the recommended amounts of dog food each day. How much more food does the 60-pound dog eat in 1 week than the 20-pound dog?

Think: What do you know? What do you need to find? How will you solve?

So, the 60-pound dog eats 10 \(\frac{1}{2}\) more cups of food than the 20-pound dog in 1 week.

Answer:

The 60-pound dog eats 10 \(\frac{1}{2}\) more cups of food than the 20-pound dog in 1 week.

Explanation:

Given A 20-pound dog eats 1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) cups and a 60-pound dog eats 3 cups,

the recommended amount of food each day. Now we need to calculate how much more food does

the 60-pound dog eat in 1 week than the 20-pound dog,

So Step 1 : First we find how much food the 20-pound dog eats in 1 week,

let us take it as b = 7 X 1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) we write mixed fraction as fraction

1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) = ( 1 X 2 + 1 )by 2 = \(\frac{3}{2}\) now multiply by 7 =

7 X \(\frac{3}{2}\) we write into unit fraction 7 X 3 X \(\frac{1}{2}\) =

21 X \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{21}{2}\) cups,

Step 2: Now we find how much food the 60-pound dog eats in 1 week let us take it as c = 7 X 3 = 21 cups,

Step 3: Subtract b from c to find how much more food the 60-pound dog eats in 1 week.

c- b = 21 – \(\frac{21}{2}\) to subtract first we make both denominators same,

we multiply and divide 21 by 2 making as (21 x 2) by 2 = \(\frac{42}{2}\) –\(\frac{21}{2}\)

as denominators are same we subtarct numerators 42-21=21 will be numerator and denominator is same 2

=\(\frac{21}{2}\) as numerator is greater than denominator and 2 goes 10 times, 2 X 10 is 20 ,

10 will be our whole number and (21−20) we have 1 left over. 1 will be our numerator and our denominator

will be the same 2 = 10 \(\frac{1}{2}\) . Therefore the 60-pound dog eats 10 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

more cups of food than the 20-pound dog in 1 week.

From the table 40-pound dog eats 2 \(\frac{1}{4}\) and 100-pound dog eats

4 \(\frac{1}{4}\) the recommended amounts of dog food each day,

to find how much food is needed to feed both dogs for 1 week first we calculate for

40-pound dog= 7 X 2 \(\frac{1}{4}\) we write the mixed fraction as a fraction

2 x 4 + 1 by 4 = \(\frac{9}{4}\) and multiply by 7 , 7 X \(\frac{9}{4}\)

now we write in unit fraction 7 X 9 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = 63 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) =

\(\frac{63}{4}\) now we calculate for 100-pound dog eats 4 \(\frac{1}{4}\) in 1 week is

7 X 4 \(\frac{1}{4}\) we write the mixed fraction as a fraction ( 4 X 4 + 1 )by 4 =

\(\frac{17}{4}\) and multiply by 7 , 7 X \(\frac{17}{4}\) now we write in unit fraction

7 X 17 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = 119 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{119}{4}\).

Now to feed the food for both dogs for 1 week is \(\frac{63}{4}\) + \(\frac{119}{4}\)

as denominators are same we add numerators we get 63 + 119 = 182 as numerator, \(\frac{182}{4}\)

further can be simplifed as 182 and 4 goes by 2 we write as \(\frac{91}{2}\) numerator is greater

we can write in mixed fraction as 2 goes 45 times, 2 X 45 is 90 , 45 will be our whole number and

(91−90) we have 1 left over. 1 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 2,

making as 45 \(\frac{1}{2}\) cups.

### Problem Solving: Fraction Operations Homework & Practice 9.5

Understand the problem. Then make a plan. How will you solve? Explain.

Question 1.

Your friend makes strawberry jam and raspberry jam. He makes enough strawberry jam to ﬁll \(\frac{1}{2}\) of a jar. He makes 5 times as much raspberry jam as strawberry jam. How many full jars of raspberry jam does he make?

Answer:

Friend makes \(\frac{5}{2}\) jars= 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\) jars in that full jars are 2,

So 2 jars of raspberry jam he makes.

Explanation:

Given friend makes strawberry jam to fill \(\frac{1}{2}\) of a jar and makes 5 times as

much raspberry jam as strawberry jam means he makes 5 X \(\frac{1}{2}\) of jars of

raspberry jam now we write as fraction \(\frac{5}{2}\) as numerator is greater,

we can write in mixed fraction as 2 goes 2 times, 2 X 2 is 4 , 2 will be our whole number and

(5−4) we have 1 left over. 1 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 2,

making as 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\) ,here 2 is whole there fore full jars of raspberry jam is 2.

So friend makes \(\frac{5}{2}\) jars= 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\) jars in that full jars are 2,

So 2 jars of raspberry jam he makes.

Question 2.

You buy a pair of jeans that originally cost $22. The pair of jeans is \(\frac{1}{2}\) off the original price.

You pay with a $20 bill. How much change do you receive?

Answer:

I receive $9 as change.

Explanation:

The pair of jeans is \(\frac{1}{2}\) off the original price and original cost is $ 22,

So the cost to be paid is $22 X \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{22}{2}\)

further this can be simplified as both can be divided by 2 numerator becomes 11 and denominator as 1 = 11,

therefore the original cost for the pair of jeans is $ 11, Now i have paid $ 20bill,

i will receive a change that is $20 – $11= $9, i receive $9 as a change.

Question 3.

The observation deck of the Space Needle in Seattle is 520 feet above ground.

The tip of the Space Needle is 85 feet above the observation deck.

An artist makes a replica that is \(\frac{1}{100}\) the height of the entire Space Needle. How tall is the replica?

Answer:

The height of replica is \(\frac{605}{100}\) =\(\frac{121}{20}\) or

6 \(\frac{1}{20}\) feet.

Explanation:

Given the observation deck of the Space Needle in Seattle is 520 feet above ground and

the tip of the Space Needle is 85 feet above the observation deck means the height of

the entire Space Needle is 520 + 85 = 605 feet above the ground to tip,

now an artist makes a replica that is \(\frac{1}{100}\)

the height of the entire Space Needle. So the height of the replica is

605 X \(\frac{1}{100}\) = \(\frac{605}{100}\)

further can be simplifed as 605 and 100 goes by 5 we get numerator as 121 and denominator as 20 =

\(\frac{121}{20}\) as numerator is greater we can write in mixed fraction as 20 goes

6 times, 20 X 6 is 120 , 6 will be our whole number and (121−120) we have 1 left over.

1 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 20, making as 6 \(\frac{1}{20}\) feet tall.

Question 4.

**Modeling Real Life**

How many sheets of orange and black paper does a teacher need so that 30 students can each complete the art project?

Answer:

For 30 students to complete the Art Project orange sheets required are 11 \(\frac{2}{8}\) and

18 \(\frac{6}{8}\) black sheets of paper is required.

Explanation:

Given paper needed for Art Project orange is \(\frac{3}{8}\) and for 30 students it is

30 X \(\frac{3}{8}\) we write in unit fraction as 30 X 3 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) =

90 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) = \(\frac{90}{8}\) as numerator is greater we can write in mixed fraction

as 8 goes 11 times, 8 X 11 is 88, 11 will be our whole number and (90−88) we have 2 left over.

2 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 8, making as

11 \(\frac{2}{8}\) sheets of orange is required, given black paper needed for

Art Project is \(\frac{5}{8}\) and for 30 students it is 30 X \(\frac{5}{8}\)

we write in unit fraction as 30 X 5 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) = 150 X \(\frac{1}{8}\) =

\(\frac{150}{8}\) as numerator is greater we can write in mixed fraction as 8 goes 18 times,

8 X 18 is 144, 18 will be our whole number and (150−144) we have 6 left over.

6 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 8, making as

18 \(\frac{6}{8}\) black sheets are required.

Therefore for 30 students to complete the Art Project orange sheets required are

11 \(\frac{2}{8}\) and 18 \(\frac{6}{8}\) black sheets of paper is required.

Question 5.

**Writing**

Write and solve a two-step word problem with mixed numbers that can be solved using multiplication.

Answer:

A two-step problem is a word problem that requires two operations to solve it.

We take two mixed numbers and slove using multiplication. In step one

we use multiplication and add and in another step we use addition and again use multiplication

as explained below with an example,

Explanation:

For example: Percy walks 2 \(\frac{5}{4}\) kilometers for 2 days and

1 \(\frac{1}{4}\) kilometers for 5 days , how many kilometers does Percy walks in 1 week?

Given in first 2 days Percy walks 2 \(\frac{5}{4}\) kilometers so In first step

we change mixed fraction to fraction by using multiplication and then add 2 X 4 + 5 by 4 =

\(\frac{13}{4}\) kilometers for 1 day for 2 days it is 2 X \(\frac{13}{4}\) =

2 X 13 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = 26 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{26}{4}\) kilometers for 2 days ,

Now for rest of 5 days we calculate. Here 1 \(\frac{1}{4}\) we change the mixed fraction to fraction as

( 1 X 4 + 1 ) by 4 = \(\frac{5}{4}\) for 1 day, For 5 days it will be 5 X \(\frac{5}{4}\),

5 X 5 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = 25 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{25}{4}\) kilometers for rest 5 days ,

Now total number of kilometers Percy walks is \(\frac{26}{4}\) + \(\frac{25}{4}\) as denominators

are same we add numerators we get 26 + 25 as 51 and denominator being same as 4 = \(\frac{51}{4}\) kilometers

Percy walks in 1 week and further can be simplified as numerator is greater we can write in mixed fraction as

4 goes 12 times, 4 X 12 is 48, 12 will be our whole number and (51−48) we have 3 left over.

3 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 4, making as

12 \(\frac{3}{4}\) kilometers Percy walks in 1 week.

Question 6.

**Modeling Real Life**

In science class, you test how many grams different-sized bundles of spaghetti can hold. You predict that a bundle of 5 spaghetti noodles can hold 10 quarters before breaking. You predict that a bundle of 10 spaghetti noodles can hold 20 quarters before breaking. Each quarter 5\(\frac{67}{100}\) grams. According to your predictions, how many more grams can the bundle of 10 noodles hold than the bundle of 5 noodles?

Answer:

\(\frac{970}{100}\) grams more the bundle of 10 noodles hold than the bundle of 5 noodles

or \(\frac{97}{10}\) grams more the bundle of 10 noodles hold than the bundle of 5 noodles

or 9 \(\frac{7}{10}\) grams more the bundle of 10 noodles hold than the bundle of 5 noodles.

Explanation:

Given that bundle of 5 noodles can hold 10 quarters means 5 noodles can hold

10 X 5 \(\frac{67}{100}\) grams first we change mixed fraction to fraction by

using multiplication and then add as 5 \(\frac{67}{100}\) = 5 X 6 + 67 by 100 =

\(\frac{97}{100}\) now we multiply by 10, 10 X \(\frac{97}{100}\) =

10 X 97 X \(\frac{1}{100}\) = 970 X \(\frac{1}{100}\) = \(\frac{970}{100}\) grams ,

so 5 spaghetti noodles can hold \(\frac{970}{100}\) grams before breaking,

Now given 10 spaghetti noodles can hold 20 quarters means 10 spaghetti noodles can hold

20 X 5 \(\frac{67}{100}\) grams again first we change mixed fraction to fraction

by using multiplication and then add as 5 \(\frac{67}{100}\) = ( 5 X 6 + 67 ) by 100 =

\(\frac{97}{100}\) now we multiply by 20, 20 X \(\frac{97}{100}\) =

20 X 97 X \(\frac{1}{100}\) = 1940 X \(\frac{1}{100}\) = \(\frac{1940}{100}\) grams ,

so 10 spaghetti noodles can hold \(\frac{1940}{100}\) grams before breaking now to calculate

how many more grams can the bundle of 10 noodles hold than the bundle of 5 noodles we subtract

\(\frac{1940}{100}\) grams – \(\frac{970}{100}\) grams as denominators are same first

we substract numerators as 1940 – 970 = 970 as numerator and denominator being same 100

we get \(\frac{970}{100}\) grams more the bundle of 10 noodles hold than the bundle of 5 noodles,

further can be simplified as 970 and 100 both can be divided by 10 making it as \(\frac{97}{10}\) grams

more the bundle of 10 noodles hold than the bundle of 5 noodles and as numerator is greater ,

we can write in mixed fraction as 10 goes 9 times, 10 X 9 is 90, 9 will be our whole number and (97−90)

we have 7 left over. 7 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 10,

making as 9 \(\frac{7}{10}\) grams more the bundle of 10 noodles hold than the bundle of 5 noodles.

Question 7.

Answer:

\(\frac{9}{10}\) is greater than > \(\frac{4}{5}\) or

\(\frac{9}{10}\) is greater than > \(\frac{8}{10}\)

Explanation:

In order to compare the fractions we must first turn their different denominators into

the same denominators to make denominators same we multiply \(\frac{4}{5}\)

with both numerator and denominator by 2 the value will not change =

\(\frac{4}{5}\) X \(\frac{2}{2}\)= \(\frac{8}{10}\)

now as denominators are same 10 we can compare only numerators

\(\frac{9}{10}\) with \(\frac{8}{10}\) as 9 is greater than 8,

So \(\frac{9}{10}\) is greater than > \(\frac{8}{10}\) or

\(\frac{9}{10}\) is greater than > \(\frac{4}{5}\)

Question 8.

Answer:

\(\frac{3}{8}\) < is less than \(\frac{5}{6}\) or

\(\frac{9}{24}\) < is less than \(\frac{20}{24}\).

Explanation:

In order to compare the fractions we must first turn their different denominators into

the same denominators to make denominators same ,

we find the least common multiplier of 8 ,6 as ( 2 X 2 X 2 X 3 ) = 24,

Now convert each one of \(\frac{3}{8}\) and \(\frac{5}{6}\)

into an equivalent fraction having $24$ as denominator,

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

\(\frac{9}{24}\) and \(\frac{5}{6}\) = \(\frac{5}{6}\) X \(\frac{4}{4}\) =

\(\frac{20}{24}\) now as denominators are same 24 we can compare only numerators

\(\frac{9}{24}\) with \(\frac{20}{24}\) as 9 is less than 20,

so \(\frac{9}{24}\) < is less than \(\frac{20}{24}\) or

\(\frac{3}{8}\) < is less than \(\frac{5}{6}\)

Question 9.

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{3}\) = is equal to \(\frac{4}{12}\) or

\(\frac{1}{3}\) = is equal to \(\frac{1}{3}\)

Explanation:

Here first we simplify \(\frac{4}{12}\) as both can be divided by 4 if we dividey

both numerator and denominator by 4 we get numerator as 1 and denominator as 4 =

\(\frac{1}{3}\) now comparing both sides, as values are same

so \(\frac{1}{3}\) = is equal to \(\frac{4}{12}\) or

\(\frac{1}{3}\) = is equal to \(\frac{1}{3}\).

### Multiply Whole Numbers and Fractions Performance Task

Question 1.

You use identical glass jars, colored water, and a spoon to learn about sounds. When you tap a spoon on a jar, the vibrations make a sound. The jar that has the least amount of water makes the lowest sound.

a. You fill each glass using a \(\frac{3}{4}\)-cup measuring cup. Complete the table to find the total amount of water in each jar.

b. How much more water is in the purple jar than the green jar?

c. How many cups of water are used in all?

d. Each jar can hold 4 cups of water. Is it possible to add another \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of water to the purple jar? Explain.

e. Which jars are more than half full?

f. You add another \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of water to the green jar. How does that affect the sound?

Answer:

a.

b. Purple jar is 3 cups more than the Green jar or Purple jar is \(\frac{12}{4}\) cups more than the Green jar.

c. Total number of cups of water used in all is \(\frac{45}{4}\) cups or 11 \(\frac{1}{4}\) cups.

d. No, it is not possible to add another \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of water to the purple jar as if we add it will become \(\frac{18}{4}\) cups = 4 \(\frac{2}{4}\) = 4 + \(\frac{2}{4}\) cups of water

to the purple jar cups which is more than 4 cups it will overflow so it is not possible to add another

\(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of water to the purple jar.

e. Jars which are more than half full are Orange, Red and Purple.

f. After adding add another \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of water to the green jar it becomes

\(\frac{6}{4}\) which is equal to blue color jar, we know the jar that has the least amount of water

makes the lowest sound before it was the green jar which had least amount of water so it had lowest sound,

so now after adding \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of water to green jar it has become equal to blue jar

so now both green and blue jar has least amount of water so they both make the lowest sound.

Explanantion:

a. Given we fill each glass \(\frac{3}{4}\)-cup measuring cup so total water cups used for each color are

Green 1 means 1 X \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup = \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup

Blue 2 of \(\frac{3}{4}\) = 2 X \(\frac{3}{4}\) = 2 X 3 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) =

6 X \(\frac{1}{4}\)= \(\frac{6}{4}\) cups , as both numerator and denominator

can be divided by 2 we get \(\frac{3}{2}\) cups

Orange 3 of \(\frac{3}{4}\) = 3 X \(\frac{3}{4}\) = 3 X 3 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) =

9 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{9}{4}\) cups

Red 4 of \(\frac{3}{4}\) = 4 X \(\frac{3}{4}\) = 4 X 3 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) =

12 X \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{12}{4}\) as both numerator and denominator can be divided by 4

we get numerator as 3 and denominator 1 making Red 4 of \(\frac{3}{4}\) = 3 cups.

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

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

\(\frac{15}{4}\) cups.

b. To calculate how much more water is in the Purple jar than the Green jar we subtract

the quantity of purple jar minus quantity in green jar as \(\frac{15}{4}\) cups – \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup,

as denominators are same for the both we will sustract numerators 15-3 = 12 and

denominator remains the same as 4, \(\frac{12}{4}\) as both numerator and

denominator can be divided by 4 we get numerator as 3 and denominator 1 so Purple Jar is 3 cups

more than the Green jar.

c. Total number of cups of water are used in all is adding Green, Blue, Orange, Red,

Purple – \(\frac{3}{4}\) + \(\frac{6}{4}\) + \(\frac{9}{4}\) + \(\frac{12}{4}\) +

\(\frac{15}{4}\) as denominators are same we add numerators as 3 + 6 + 9 + 12 + 15 = 45 and

denominator being same as 4 = \(\frac{45}{4}\) as numerator is greater we can also write in mixed fraction

as 4 goes 11 , 4 X 11 is 44, 11 will be our whole number and (45−44) we have 1 left over.

1 will be our numerator and our denominator will be the same 4, making as 11 \(\frac{1}{4}\),

therfore total number of cups of water used in all is \(\frac{45}{4}\) cups or 11 \(\frac{1}{4}\) cups.

d. We got Purple jar contains \(\frac{15}{4}\) cups to this we will add another

\(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of water = \(\frac{15}{4}\) + \(\frac{3}{4}\) as denominator is

same we add numerators as 15 + 3 = 18 and denominator is same 4 so now the Purple jar contains

\(\frac{18}{4}\) cups , to find the whole value we write in mixed fraction as 4 goes , 4 X 4 is 16, 4

will be our whole number and (18−16) we have 2 left over. 2 will be our numerator and our denominator

will be the same 4, making as 4 \(\frac{2}{4}\) = 4 + \(\frac{2}{4}\) and

given that each jar can hold 4 cups of water but as we are getting more than 4 it will overflow,

so it is not possible to add another \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of water to the purple jar.

e. Jars more than half full means each jars should be above 2 cups means to check we need

denominator to be same that is 4 so we multiply denominator and numerator by 4,

we get \(\frac{8}{4}\) to be more than half full means each jars numerators should be more than 8 and all jars denominators being same as 4, now we check with green jar, \(\frac{8}{4}\) and

\(\frac{3}{4}\) as 3 is not greater than 8 so not green jar, blue jar we have \(\frac{6}{4}\) cups

here also numerator 6 is not more than 8 so even we will not conside blue jar,

orange jar \(\frac{9}{4}\) now here numerator 8 is less than 9 so we will consider orange jar,

Now red jar as red jar has 3 cups which is above 2 cups we consider red jar and we have purple jar as

\(\frac{15}{4}\) here numerator 15 is more than numerator 8 so we consider purple jar,

therefore jars with more than half full are Orange, Red and Purple.

f. Now we will add another \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of water to the green jar means

\(\frac{3}{4}\) + \(\frac{3}{4}\) as denominators as same we add numerators

we get \(\frac{6}{4}\) which is equal to blue color jar, we know the jar that has the

least amount of water makes the lowest sound before it was the green jar which had least amount of water,

so it had lowest sound, so now after adding \(\frac{3}{4}\) cup of water to green jar it has become equal

to blue jar so now both green and blue jar has least amount of water so they both make the lowest sound.

Question 24.

**Modeling Real Life**

Your friend rides her bike \(\frac{2}{6}\) mile to your house and \(\frac{2}{6}\)

mile back home 4 times in 1 week. How far does she bike in all?

Answer:

My friend rides her bike by \(\frac{8}{3}\) miles or 2 \(\frac{2}{3}\) miles.

Explanation:

Given friend rides her bike \(\frac{2}{6}\) mile to your house and \(\frac{2}{6}\) mile

back home, first we calculate for 1 time, so first we will add \(\frac{2}{6}\) + \(\frac{2}{6}\)

as both have same denominators we will add numerators as ( 2 + 2 = 4 ).

So we get \(\frac{4}{6}\) miles for 1 time , now she rides 4 times means 4 X \(\frac{4}{6}\) =

\(\frac{16}{6}\) this can be further simplified as 16,6 both goes by 2 we get numerator as 8 and

denominator as 3 = \(\frac{8}{3}\) as numerator is greater than denominator we can write in

mixed fraction as 3 goes in 2 times. 2 will be our whole number 3 X 2 is 6 and

we have 2 left over (8−6), 2 will be our numerator and our denominator will stay the same 3,

we get mixed fraction as 2 \(\frac{2}{3}\) miles.
