Question and answer
3 3/8 yards of frabic to make a dress for herseilf and 2 1/8 yards of the same frabric to make a matching dress for her daughter. If she buys 6 1/8 yards of fabric how much will she have left over.
3 3/8 + 2 1/8 = 5 4/8 yards we could change 4/8 to 1/2, but for now, [ I will leave the denominator as 8 since it will help in a moment.... next we subtract the fabric Sharyn needs from the amount of fabric she bought... 6 1/8 - 5 4/8 = to make this easier we can change them to improper fractions... 49/8 - 44/8 = 5/8 yards Sharyn will have 5/8 yards of fabric left. If you're wondering about how we made the mixed numbers into improper fractions, we take the 6 (from 6 1/8) and multiply it by 8. It is like saying we had 6 of 8/8. 6x8 = 48..so that gives us 48/8 and then add the extra
1/8 which equals 49/8. We do the same kind of steps when we converted 5 4/8 yards to an improper fraction. ]
