11) In a comedy review, each performer has a 1/4 h slot. How many performers are there in a 2 h show?

To answer this question, I needed to use the manipulatives method. So the answer to this question is 8 performers.

12) It takes 2 1/2 scoops of flour to make one cake. How many cakes do 15 scoops of flour make?

To answer this question you use the same method as the first one shown. The answer to this question would be 6 cakes.

13) Three quarters of a can of apple juice fills six glasses. How many glasses will a whole can of apple juice fill?

My test corrections:

My first mistake was on the question.. Tamar had 1/2 of an apple pie in her refrigerator. She ate 1/4 of this piece of pie. What fraction of a whole pie did she eat?

Instead of multiplying, I divided.

The right answer is 1/2 x 1/4 = 1/8

The actual answer is... What is 5/6 groups of 1/2?
