Which Fraction Does Not Belong?

Pizza slices are left over from a party. Each whole pizza was the same size, but was cut into a different number of equal slices.

For each pizza, write a fraction that represents the part of the pizza that is left over.

A. Cheese pizza _____ $$\frac{2}{8}$$ = $$\frac{1}{4}$$.

Explanation:
A fraction that represents the part of the pizza that is left over is $$\frac{1}{4}$$.

B. Mushroom pizza _____ $$\frac{1}{4}$$.

Explanation:
A fraction that represents the part of the pizza that is left over is $$\frac{1}{4}$$.

C. Olive pizza _____ |
$$\frac{2}{10}$$ = $$\frac{1}{5}$$

Explanation:
A fraction that represents the part of the pizza that is left over is $$\frac{1}{5}$$.

D. Spinach pizza $$\frac{3}{12}$$ = $$\frac{1}{4}$$.

Explanation:
A fraction that represents the part of the pizza that is left over is $$\frac{1}{4}$$.

Multiply or Divide to Find Equivalent Fractions

Multiply or divide to find the equivalent fraction.

Question 1. Explanation:
Let us solve the given expression
Now let us assume the given box is x.
$$\frac{4}{5}$$ = $$\frac{x}{15}$$
Cross multiply on both sides
4 × 15 = 5 × x
60 = 5x
x = $$\frac{60}{5}$$
x = 12.

Question 2. Explanation:
Let us solve the given expression
Now let us assume the given box is x.
$$\frac{9}{12}$$ = $$\frac{3}{x}$$
Cross multiply on both sides
9 × x = 3 × 12
9x = 36
x = $$\frac{36}{9}$$
x = 4

Question 3. Explanation:
Let us solve the given expression
Now let us assume the given box is x.
$$\frac{5}8}$$ = $$\frac{x}{24}$$
Cross multiply on both sides
5 × 24 = 8 × x
120x = 8x
x = $$\frac{120}{8}$$
x = 15

Compare Fractions
Complete the statement using the symbol <, >, or =.

Question 4.
$$\frac{7}{8}$$ ____ $$\frac{9}{8}$$
<

Explanation:
The symbol used to compare the given decimal is <.
$$\frac{7}{8}$$ < $$\frac{9}{8}$$.

Question 5.
$$\frac{5}{8}$$ ____ $$\frac{5}{9}$$
>

Explanation:
First, let us calculate the LCM of 8,9 which is 72
$$\frac{5}{8}$$ = $$\frac{45}{72}$$
$$\frac{5}{9}$$ = $$\frac{40}{72}$$
$$\frac{45}{72}$$ > $$\frac{40}{72}$$
$$\frac{5}{8}$$ > $$\frac{5}{9}$$

Question 6.
$$\frac{3}{4}$$ ____ $$\frac{5}{6}$$
Explanation:
First, let us calculate the LCM of 4,6 which is 12.
$$\frac{3}{4}$$ = $$\frac{9}{12}$$
$$\frac{5}{6}$$ = $$\frac{10}{12}$$
$$\frac{9}{12}$$ < $$\frac{10}{12}$$
$$\frac{3}{4}$$ < $$\frac{5}{6}$$.

Compare Decimals

Complete the statement using the symbol <, >,or =

Question 7.
0.51 ___ 0.46
>

Explanation:
The symbol used to compare the given decimal is >.
0.51 > 0.46

Question 8.
1.073 ____ 1.703
<

Explanation:
The symbol used to compare the given decimal is <.
1.073 < 1.703

Question 9.
3.60 ___ 3.6
=

Explanation:
The symbol used to compare the given decimal is =.
3.60 = 3.6
