### Scribe Post for April 17, 2009

Sunday, April 19, 2009
Hi guys (: THERE'S ONLY 9 MORE DAYS UNTIL THE MUSIC TRIP ! YAAAAY (: Anyways, I'm doing one of the scribes for April 17. I'm going to show you how to do 6 questions from our assignments, and I'm going to the page where it says "Did You Hear About..."

The first question I'm going to do is letter C because it's the first letter of my name! Haha.
Okay so here's the question:
C. 9/10 + 1/2

- First you have to find the common denominator!

The Second question I'm doing is letter F.
Here's the question:
F. 7/10 - 1/5

- The second step is to multiply the numerator with what you multiplied its denominator with then subtract or add the numerators together.

The Third question I'm going to do is letter K

Here it is:
K. 9/16 + 15/16
(This question is really easy!)
- The third step is to reduce the fraction if needed.

The fourth question I'm doing is letter L.
L. 7/10 - 8/15
(I sort of got confused with the subtraction and adding symbols, it's a subtraction question by the way!)
- Review: The first step you have to do is to find the common denominator between the two (or more) denominators. The next step you have to do is to subtract or add the numerators together. And lastly, you have to reduce the fraction if you need to.

The fifth question I'm doing is letter M.
Here's the question:
M. (7/8 - 1/4) + 1/2

- This question is different from the others because there are brackets. When you have brackets you have to do what's in the first, then whatever is outside the brackets. Remember B.E.D.M.A.S.

And for my last question I'm doing letter P.

Here I go:

P. A BigBurger has 1/4 pound of meat. A SuperBurger has 1/3 pound of meat. How much more meat is used for the SuperBurger?
P. 1/3 - 1/4

This question is simple, just use the steps I gave you.

I hope that my scribe wasn't that bad, and didn't have a lot of mistakes. Now I have to finish my other homework... So bye! Oh and before I forget, since there are 2 scribes I'm going to chose who's going to the next scribe at school (: bwuahah. ttfn.
