Nice Job!
Incorrect
To multiply fractions, simply multiply the numerators and denominators separately.First, find the fraction for the money spent by adding the two given fractions.Fraction for snacks: `3/5`Fraction for ticket: `1/4`$$\frac{\color{#00880A}{3}}{\color{#9a00c7}{5}}+\frac{\color{#007DDC}{1}}{\color{#9a00c7}{4}}$$ `=` $$\frac{(\color{#00880A}{3}\times\color{#9a00c7}{4})+(\color{#007DDC}{1}\times\color{#9a00c7}{5})}{\color{#9a00c7}{5\times4}}$$ `=` `(12+5)/20` `=` `17/20` Proceed to compute for the actual money that Jack spentTo get a fraction of a quantity, simply multiply the fraction to the quantity.Fraction of money spent: `17/20`Total money: `$40``17/20``xx``40` `=` `17/20xx40/1` `=` $$\frac{17}{20\div\color{#CC0000}{20}}\times\frac{40\div\color{#CC0000}{20}}{1}$$ Reduce the fractions `=` `17/1xx2/1` `=` `34/1` `=` `$34` Jack spent $34 in the cinema.Finally, subtract the money spent from the total money to get the remaining amount.`$40$34` `=` `$6` There is `$6` left from Jack’s money.`$6`

To multiply fractions, simply multiply the numerators and denominators separately.First, compute for the exact amount of fuel in the tank at the momentTo get a fraction of a quantity, simply multiply the fraction to the quantity.Fraction of current fuel amount: `1/3`Total tank capacity: `60L``1/3``xx``60` `=` `1/3xx60/1` `=` $$\frac{1}{3\div\color{#CC0000}{3}}\times\frac{60\div\color{#CC0000}{3}}{1}$$ Reduce the fractions `=` `1/1xx20/1` `=` `20/1` `=` `20L` The tank currently contains `20L` of petrol.Finally, subtract the current amount of petrol from the total capacity to get how much petrol needs to be added.`60L20L` `=` `40L` `40L` of petrol needs to be added for the tank to be full.`40L`

3. Question
A `1` metre pole is placed in a pond. `1/5` of it is in the ground and `2/3` of it is in the water. What fraction of the pole is above the water?Write fractions in the format “a/b” (2/15)
Hint

Keep Going!
Incorrect
Subtract the given fractions from the full length of the pole.Length of the pole: `1`mLength of pole in water: `2/3`Length of pole in the ground: `1/5``1(\frac{\color{#00880A}{2}}{\color{#9a00c7}{3}}+\frac{\color{#007DDC}{1}}{\color{#9a00c7}{5}})` `=` $$1\frac{(\color{#00880A}{2}\times\color{#9a00c7}{5})+(\color{#007DDC}{1}\times\color{#9a00c7}{3})}{\color{#9a00c7}{3\times5}}$$ Use cross method to add the fractions `=` $$1\frac{10+3}{15}$$ `=` $$\frac{15}{15}\frac{13}{15}$$ `=` $$\frac{2}{15}$$ `2/15` of the pole is above water.`2/15`

Correct!
Incorrect
To multiply fractions, simply multiply the numerators and denominators separately.First, get the fraction of players that are not injured.Total squad of players: `3/3`Fraction of injured players: `1/3``3/31/3` `=` `2/3` `2/3` of the players are not injured.To get a fraction of a quantity, simply multiply the fraction to the quantity.Fraction of injured players: `2/3`Total no. of players: `15``2/3``xx``15` `=` `2/3xx15/1` `=` $$\frac{2}{3\div\color{#CC0000}{3}}\times\frac{15\div\color{#CC0000}{3}}{1}$$ Reduce the fractions `=` `2/1xx5/1` `=` `10/1` `=` `10` players `10` players in the squad are not injured.`10` players
