Thai Kids Fund-raising Bake Sale

During the few weeks of the Thai Kids Fundraising event, each advisory held a fund-raising event. During the event, our advisory held a bake sale. During the bake sale, we came early to school to sell the sweets. To make the apple pie, I worked for about 4 hours. I worked for about 30 to 40 minutes (o.5hrs or more) during the selling. The bake sale was a success and we raised a lot of money. We were that we were able to support the Thai Kids and the money enabled them to go to school.

How to Subtract Mixed Fractions

In order to be able to subtract mixed fractions, you will have to follow the process below. For example, if the equation you want to find out the answer to is:

    \[ 2\frac{3}{4}-6\frac{2}{3} \]

The method in order to answer the equation is:

1. First, add the whole numbers. In this case, you add 2 and 6 which is 8. Leave the 8 until later.

2. Next, convert the two leftover fractions into improper fractions. In this case, the equation will be:

    \[ \frac{3}{4}-\frac{2}{3} \]

3. Next, convert the denominators into the same numbers. In order to do so, you will have to find out the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of the two numbers. In this case, the LCM is 12. Therefore, it will be like the equation below:

    \[ \frac{9}{12}-\frac{8}{12}=\frac{1}{12} \]

4. The sum is not an improper fraction. Therefore, simplifying it to a mixed number is not necessary.

5. When producing the final answer, you have to add the 8, which was left at the start to the sum. Therefore, the equation will be:

    \[ \frac{1}{12}+8=8\frac{1}{12} \]

6. You’re done! The final answer is:

    \[ 8\frac{1}{12} \]

 

How to Add Mixed Numbers

In order to be able to add mixed fractions, you will have to follow the process below. For example, if the equation you want to find out the answer to is:

    \[ 1\frac{1}{2}+2\frac{5}{6} \]

The method in order to answer the equation is:

1. First, add the whole numbers. In this case, you add 1 and 2 which is 3. Leave the 3 until later.

2. Next, convert the two leftover fractions into improper fractions. In this case, the equation will be:

    \[ \frac{1}{2}+\frac{5}{6} \]

3.  Next, convert the denominators into the same numbers. In order to do so, you will have to find out the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of the two numbers. In this case, the LCM is  6. Therefore, it will be like the equation below:

    \[ \frac{3}{6}+\frac{5}{6}=\frac{8}{6} \]

4. The sum is an improper fraction. Therefore, simplifying it to a mixed number is necessary.

    \[ 1\frac{2}{6} \]

Which when simplified further, is:

    \[ 1\frac{1}{3} \]

5. When producing the final answer, you have to add the 3, which was left at the start to the sum. Therefore, the equation will be:

    \[ 1\frac{1}{3}+3=4\frac{1}{3} \]

6. You’re done! The final answer is:

    \[ 4\frac{1}{3} \]

 

How to Subtract Proper Fractions

In order to be able to subtract proper fractions, first you have to convert the denominators into the same number like the other equations. For example, if the equation you want to work out is

    \[ \frac{3}{5}-\frac{1}{4} \]

The method in order to answer the equation is:

1. As mentioned before, convert the denominators into the same number. In order to do so, you will have to find out the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of the two numbers. In this case, the LCM is 20. Therefore, it will be like the equation below:

    \[ \frac{12}{20}-\frac{5}{20}=\frac{7}{20} \]

2. The answer is not an improper fraction and is a proper fraction. Therefore, simplifying it to a mixed number is not necessary. The final answer is written below:

    \[ \frac{7}{20} \]

 

How to Add Proper Fractions

In order to be able to add proper fractions, first you have to convert the denominators into the same number like the other equations. For example, if the equation you want to work out is

    \[ \frac{2}{3}+\frac{3}{5} \]

The method in order to answer the equation is:

1. As mentioned before, convert the denominators into the same number. In order to do so, you will have to find out the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of the two numbers. In this case, the LCM is 15. Therefore, it will be like the equation below:

    \[ \frac{10}{15}+\frac{9}{15}=\frac{19}{15} \]

2. The answer is an improper fraction. Therefore, simplifying it to a mixed number is necessary. The answer is written below:

    \[ 1\frac{4}{15} \]

3. You’re done! The final answer is:

    \[ 1\frac{4}{15} \]

 

How to Add Subtractions

In order to be able to add fractions, first you have to convert the denominators into the same number. For example, if the equation you want to work out is

    \[ \frac{9}{11}+\frac{5}{2} \]

The method in order to answer the equation is:

1. As mentioned before, convert the denominators into the same number. In order to do so, you will have to find out the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of the two numbers. In this case, the LCM is 22. Therefore, it will be like the equation below:

    \[ \frac{18}{22}+\frac{55}{22}=\frac{73}{22} \]

2. The answer is an improper fraction. Therefore, simplifying it to a mixed number is necessary. The answer is written below:

    \[ 3\frac{7}{22} \]

3. You’re done! The final answer is:

    \[ 3\frac{7}{22} \]

 

How to Subtract Fractions

In order to be able to subtract fractions, first you have to convert the denominators into the same number in order to make sure it as a Equivalent Fraction. For example, if the equation you want to work out is

    \[ \frac{9}{4}-\frac{1}{6} \]

The method in order to answer the equation is:

1. As mentioned before, convert the denominators into the same number. In order to do so, you will have to find out the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of the two numbers. In this case, the LCM will be 12. Therefore, it will be like the equation below:

    \[ \frac{27}{12}-\frac{2}{12}=\frac{25}{12} \]

2. The answer is an improper fraction. Therefore, simplifying it to a mixed number is necessary. The answer is written below:

    \[ 2\frac{1}{12} \]

3. You’re done! The final answer is:

    \[ 2\frac{1}{12} \]
