1. Karen is mixing organic fertilizer for a garden. She needs to add $$\frac{3}{4}$$ teaspoon of fertilizer to water. But she only has a $$\frac{1}{8}$$-teaspoon measuring spoon. How many times does Karen need to fill the $$\frac{1}{8}$$-teaspoon measuring spoon? A. You want to know how many eighths equal $$\frac{3}{4}$$. Write the two fractions in an equation. B. Use multiplication to determine the relationship between the two known denominators.

Turn and Talk Why can two fractions have a different number and size of parts and still be equivalent fractions?
Two fractions are equivalent to each other if after simplification either of two fractions is equal to the other one.
Two fractions are equivalent to each other if after simplification either of two fractions is equal to the other one.

Explanation:
Two fractions are equivalent to each other if after simplification either of two fractions is equal to the other one.
For example, ⅔ and 4/6 are equivalent fractions.
Since, 4/6 = (2×2)/(2×3) = 2/3.

Question 1.
Rachel spends $$\frac{8}{10}$$ hour in the garden. William spends $$\frac{4}{5}$$ hour in the garden. Do Rachel and William spend the same amount of time in the garden? How do you know? ___________________________
___________________________
Yes, Rachel and William spend the same amount of time in the garden because both their times are equal.

Explanation:
Number of hours Rachel spends in the garden = $$\frac{8}{10}$$
Number of hours William spends in the garden = $$\frac{4}{5}$$

Question 16.
Attend to Precision Victor installs tiles on a floor. He uses blue tiles for $$\frac{4}{5}$$ of the floor and white tiles for the rest. If Victor uses 100 tiles, how many of the tiles are blue?

• Explain how you can solve the problem by finding an equivalent fraction.
______________________________
• Use a visual model to represent the equivalent fractions. Out of 100 tiles used, _____ tiles are blue.
Number of tiles are blue = 80.

Explanation:
Number of blue tiles Victor uses of the floor = $$\frac{4}{5}$$
Total number of tiles he uses = 100.
Number of tiles are blue = Total number of tiles he uses × Number of blue tiles Victor uses of the floor
= 100 × $$\frac{4}{5}$$
= 20 × 4
= 80. Question 17.
Use Repeated Reasoning The table shows how much tomato juice each person drinks. Who drinks the same amount of tomato juice? Explain. Amount of tomato juice Lisa, Xavier and Chris drinks the same quanity of  $$\frac{1}{4}$$ quart.

Explanation:
Amount of tomato juice Lisa drinks = $$\frac{1}{4}$$ quart.
Amount of tomato juice Xavier drinks = $$\frac{5}{20}$$ quart.
Amount of tomato juice Chris drinks = $$\frac{3}{12}$$ quart.
