Adding Mixed Numbers
Here is what we learned on Monday
Cheese 6/6=1 5/6 Bacon 6/6 5/6 1 5/6+ 1 5/6=
Here is one way to add this
Lowest Terms: 2/3
Take one from the last one to make the second one whole. That gives us 3 wholes and 4/6. In Lowest terms we got 3 2/3.
Steps for adding mixed numbers
1.Add the whole numbers
2.Find a common denominator for the fraction
3.Add the fractions
4.Add the whole numbers to the fractions
The word "And" in math means decimal or addition eg. 1.5 or 1+1/2
