Neither of them are correct because the boy has 4/24 that also equals to 1/6 and 24/144, the girl has 3/18 that also equals to 1/6 and 24/144. So they both have the same portion of the cake. : )

They are both wrong. If you divide their fractions you would get 1/6 for both of them. They would both have equal pieces.

They are the same because when I mulitphed 4 times 18 I got 72

there equal cause you know by multiplying the denominators,then multiplying the 4 by 18 and multiply 3 by and 24 and which ever one is bigger or equal proves who was right

The boy and the girl are both wrong. 4/24 and 3/18 are equivalent.

Nobody is wrong. Nobody is right.I multiply the boy's fraction by 3 and got me the equivalent fraction,12/72.I multiply the girl's fraction by 4 and got me the equvaient fraction,12/72.So they both got equal cake.

they are both wrong because I crossed multiplied and they both have the same amount, becuase 18 times 4 equals 72 and 24 times 3 equals 72. and that is my answer.

They are equal because 4/24 is equalivelent to 3/18.

Both of them are wrong when you simplify the fractions. They both actully ate 1/6 of the cake . so they had the same amount .

None of them are correct.There portion is equal because if you times 24 and 18(which is the denominator)you will get 432.Then you times 18 and 4 and get 72.Then you times 24 and 3 and get 72.Both of there portion is equal. :) 72\432

They are both wrong.If you simplify 3/18 you get 1/6 and if you simplify 4/24 you also get 1/6.

To find the answer you have to reduce both fractions to the simplest forms 4/24 =1/6 and 3/18 =1/6 so they both have an equal amount.

No one is right, no one is wrong. The portion is equal. :) :)

They got the same amount because 4/24 divided by 4 is 1/6.

the are both wrong because 3/18 is simaller to 1/6 and 4/24 is simaller to 1/6

they both have the same amount.if you cross multiply than you will get they are both wrong!

the boy is wrong.the girl is wrong.they both got the same.i did 24 times 3 and got 72 for the girl i did 18 times 4 and got 72

12/06/2013 7:36am
they are both rong they each got the same amount because u cross multiplide and both eaqlde 72

they both have the same i did 24 x 3 and 18 x 4 they both got the same amount

They are both wrong!!!!!!! Becuase 4/24 and 3/18 are equal, both fractions equal 72.

They are both wrong, because 4/24 can be reduced to 1/6. And 3/18 can be reduced to 1/6 also. There fore, they are both wrong.

I did the math and the answer is that the two fractions are equivalent. so they were both wrong.

Well, if you reduse both fractions you get 1/6 .Both children have the same amount of cake . There may be different denominators but if you reduse both you get the same amount! Comments are closed.
