# this is a Lab math homework help. 6th grade.?

okay so rasheed takes a customer order for ribbon badges. it takes 1/6 yard to make a ribbon for a badge. How many ribbon badges can he make from the given amount of ribbon?. Describe what each fractional part of an answer means. and how did you get it?

1. 1/2

2. 3/4

3. 2 2/3 = 8/3

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.

• Ahhh, math! I don't really like math....

Good Luck!
