Okay so today there is two different scribes. I will be doing the fraction word problems. The first one is the easiest one to do.

So the first part is that the theme of these question are that Betty is planning a birthday party for her little brother.

Here is the question and the work:

Just click it to make it bigger if you find it hard to see. Anyways as I put on the page that if you ruined 3/8 of something you need to use the 1/2 for the ice cream in the tub to fix it, right? So then you would have to add what is left of the cake to what you have of the ice cream that could be used to remake it.

I don't get problem number two. The whole hot dog thing. I couldn't turn it into a equation. Which I think is really dumb but what can I do. So to anyone that does know what to do I hope that you make a comment on this Scribe Post and tell us your theory. We would love to hear it.

Anyways onto the last question. I was a bit confused on this one to but I think I get it and if I don't again the whole comment thing. People like to correct their mistake or at least know what they are, thank you very much.

So as you can see I like to do things the hard way but I did simplified it in the end. This one was kind of hard because of the 3 fractions but I did it the way one of my friends suggested. It looks right to me. Anyways that is all I had to do. I hoped it helped you.
