  3. Kendra had collected 96 stickers by the end of the weekend. On Saturday she bought 1/3 of them at the store. On Sunday, her sister Amy-Lee gave her 1/4 of the stickers she collected. The rest her Aunt Caddie gave to her. How many stickers did Aunt Caddie give her?
    1/3+1/4=?
    4/12+3/12 = 7/12
    7/12 = 14/24 = 56/96
    96-56 = 40
    Aunt Caddie gave Kendra 40 stickers.

  4. Mary has 3/4 cups of sugar to use in her cake.
    Leah has 3 times as much as Mary.
    Alice has 6 times as much as Leah.
    How much sugar do all the girls have all together?
    Simplify.

    3/4 x3= 9/12 9/12 x6= 54/72 27/36, 3/4
    In all 2 and 1/4

  5. 1/6 x 4/4 = 6/24 = 3/12 = 1/4 (4/4 = 1)

    1/4 x 12/12 = 12/36 = 3/9 = 1/3 (12/12 = 1)

  6. 7/8*4/5 = 28/40 = 7/10

    7/10 \ 14/20 = 7/10 * 20/14 = 2/2 = 1
