## savannahaley 3 years ago . The primary colors are yellow, blue, and red. In simplest form, what fraction of the bag is made up of primary colors?

1. alexxxis

How much of everything is in the bag?

2. savannahaley

there's 53 marbles in the bag

3. tcarroll010

Yes, but we need to know how many of each color? Are there marbles in the bag other than y, b, and r?

4. alexxxis

We can get a fraction unless it says how many of each.

5. alexxxis

cant *

6. savannahaley

yes there's green (9) orange (13) brown (10) blue (12) red(5) and yellow (7)

7. alexxxis

So thats 24 out of 53? Do y know how to reduce that?

8. alexxxis

you *

9. savannahaley

I divide right?

10. nubeer

its 56 btw..

11. savannahaley

I know that but i need to know how to simplify them.

12. alexxxis

Lol, she said 53. Sorry. And you have to fin something common to divide by.

13. savannahaley

ohh okay

14. alexxxis

If its 24 over 56 you can clearly divide by 2, maybe more. So start with 2 and see if theres anything else?

15. savannahaley
