The Problem

LeSean has 7 3/18 cups of Gatorade. Sammy asks for 3 4/9 cups. Then, Percy asks for 2 2/9 cups. How many cups does LeSean have left?


First you make all the fractions improper and equivalent. (129/18, 62/18, and 40/18) Then you add the 62/18 and 40/18 to get 102/18. Then you subtract that from 129/18 and get 27/18. Then you make it a mixed number, and it ends up being 1 1/2.
