Storyboard Text

  • Hey mom, how much cake is each person is going to get on my birthday?
  • 6/8 + 2/8 = 8/8 or 1 whole cake.
  • Since there are 8 pieces and 6 kids, everyone will get 1/8 of the cake for a total of 6/8. Dad and I will get 2/8 of the cake.         
  • Hey dad, how long is the show we are going to watch for my birthday?
  •       2/4 times 2 Just multiply the denominator and numerator by each other and you will get 1/1 which is 1 in simplest form.
  • Last week, we watched a show that was 1/2 an hour. The show we are going to watch is twice as long as the other. So 1/2 times 2 = an hour.
  • Hey sister, how much soda is each person going to get on my birthday?
  • 6 times 1/6 =1 liter of soda
  • Since there are 6 people coming to the party, and we have 1 liter of soda, then each person will get 1/6 of the liter of soda.
  • Hey brother, how much pizza is going to be left over on my birthday?
  • 2 - 1/8 You first have to make the 2 into 1 and 8/8 and then subtract it. and you will get 1 and 7/8
  • Each person will get 1/8 the pizza and there are 2 pizzas, so 2 - 1/8 = 1 and 7/8 of the pizza left.
  • Hey grandpa, since we have 3/4 of tbe pie left from the party, how much pie can we have tomorrow?
  • 3/4 divided by 6 first, change the 6 into 1/6. This is called a reciprocal. Then multiply and you will get 1/8.
  • Since we have 3/4 of the pie, and there are 6 people, we can call have 1/8 of the pie.
  • Hey grandma, who is going to eat more of their slice of cheese cake. Me, or my brother?
  • 2/4 or 2/3 The most common denominator is 12 for both numbers. Then multiply the number you got to get the most common denominator by the numerator and denominator. You will get 8/12 for 2/3 and 6/12 for 2/4
  • Since your brother is going to eat 2/3 of his slice of cheese cake and you are only going to eat 2/4 of yours, your brother will eat more.
  • So grandma, how much cheese cake do my brother and I eat all together?
  • 2/4 + 2/3 Since the most common denominator is 12 then you multiply the number you got to get the most common denominator like the other problem. Then you add the converted fractions and you will get 1 1/6.
  • Since you are having 2/4 of yours and your brother is having 2/3 of his, then 2/3 +  2/4 = 1 1/6.
  • Happy birthday Ryan!
