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 24Source(s): grade 9 math

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