What! Only one answer? :)
Looking at these "word" equations: what do you think about "the number 3 is 4 times the size of 3/4" 4 * 3/4 = 3 is true.
Something like 3/4 is 1/3 the size of 4 means to me to multiply 1/3 times 4 and see if the product is 3/4. It is not.
@Ms-Brains What do you think is the intended answer?
Ah.. I'm thinking D...?
@Lily2913 Post what you think, okay? Cooperative learning can be fun.
I don't think lily is going to respond..
I looked at D) 3/4 is 1/4 the size of 4. But, 1/4 * 4 = 1; not 3/4
Ergo, I voted "no" on option D.
>I don't think lily is going to respond.. She may be thinking.
If everyone has weighed in, I am voting for option B for reasons cited earlier in the thread.
alright. I agree
B seems to work.
I got a few more questions
If I had written the options, I would have put this among the options to be the correct one: 3/4 is 1/4 of 3. That makes sense to me.
@Lily2913 Do you want to go first with your thoughts on this?
No, I'm leaving the floor to you. :)
At first, I thought 7/5 but then thought no way the person could have more rose bushes than gallons of water and have each bush get 1 2/5 gallons.
Then, decided 5 gallons for 7 bushes would be 5/7 gallon per bush. (assuming each bush receives an equal amount of water). @Lily2913 @Ms-Brains What do you two think about 5/7 gallon per bush?
I got no idea guys..
Seems more likely that you would split the 5gal of water among the 7 flowers, rather than the 7 flowers over the 5 gallons :)
What do you think @Ms-Brains ?
We could split the the 7 lilies over the 5 gallons :)
I'm thinking @Directrix is correct.. but idk
You could, but that just does not sound right to me.
5 gallons of water, 7 rose bushes. No way a bush could even get 1 gallon of water. 5/7 gallons of water per bush, I say.
I concur with @Directrix
I'm going to post a new one
