    You have to make the common denominator so that you can divide :)

    1. 1/2 = 3/6

    1/6 per ribbon

    since you have a common denominator, divide both the top and bottom of the fraction

    3/6 (divide logo) 1/6

    so 3 divided by 3 is 1 (denominator)

    and 3 divided by 1 is 3.

    making it 3/1 which is the EXACT same thing as 3.

    there's #1 try the other ones on your own :)

    Also remember that the denominator may not always be 6. in your next question, it looks like the denominator will be 24

    (1/2)/(1/6)=

    6(1/2)=3 ribbons

    6(3/4)=18/4=4.5 ribbons, so 4 complete ribbons

    6(8/3)=48/3=16 ribbons

    It could be any of those depending on what you started with.

    for example if you started with 1/2 of a yard, then he could make 3 such badges.

    1/6 + 1/6 + 1/6 = 3/6 = 1/2

    So you must post the starting amount.
