I have spent 1/4 of an hour each day for 2 days on my project.My friend,Kim has done 1/2 of an hour each day for 2 days.Which one of us has done more work?
First let's do how much work I have done.I have to multiply 1/4 with 4 to get my answer.1/4 x 2 = 2/41/4 x 2/1 =1 x 2 = 24 x 1 = 4I am done half of my work as my answer is 2/4.
Now,we have to find out how much work Kim has done.I have to multiply 1/2 with 2 to get my answer.1/2 x 2 = 2/21/2 x 2/1 =1 x 2 = 2 2 x 1 = 2Kim is done all her work.
We need to subtract the numbers to find out who did more work.We need to first find a common denominator between 2 and 4 which is 4.2/4 will stay the same so we just need to change 2/2 to a fraction with a denominator of 4 so our new fraction would be 4/4.
We can conclude that Kim has done more work and finished her project.Seems like I shouldn't have been playing video games for 2 hours yesterday but thanks for your help.
