Basically think of it like money.... Pretend we have $1 and you want to split it by 2 that would equal 50 cents since....50 + 50 equals $1.... So 50 is one-half of a dollar.... Now how many quarters make up $1?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

4

563blackghost (563blackghost):

Correct so 4 quarters make up $1...So if we have 25 cents then we have 1/4 of a dollar...do you get that?

1 year ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes she does

563blackghost (563blackghost):

Great ^^ Now if we add 25 plus 25 which is 1/ 4 plus 1/4 that would equal what?

0.5

563blackghost (563blackghost):

Correct ^^ that would be 1/2 so she will be able to make two batches of brownies....do you understand how we found that answer?

1 year ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

she dosent

563blackghost (563blackghost):

Thats alright ^^ lets try a different approach....instead of brownies we will use money (kind of).... Now we know that 1/4 or .25 makes one batch of brownies....So we use 25 cents of one dollar.... Now we have 1/2 or .5 which can make a ___ batch of brownies.... So we have 50 cents of one dollar ourselves..... Now how many quaters are needed to make 50 cents?

1 year ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

25 + 25

1 year ago
563blackghost (563blackghost):

Correct! So that is what we are doing adding 1/4 and 1/4 to equal 1/2 so that would mean we would be able to make 2 batches of brownies since we have .5 ourselves and use .25 to make one batch of brownies....do u get a lil better?
