  15. J'Quan White-Jackman says:

    challenge 1
    I halved 20 to get ten
    Challenge 2
    I divided 8 by 4 to get 2
    Challenge 3
    I divided 16 by 4 to get 4
    The bottom number of a fraction is the total amount which is 16 and and the top number is how much is given to each class member so as a fraction it is 4/16

  16. Hi J’Quan,
    Amazing work with solving these challenge!
    Your explanation of how you got these answers was fantastic!
    Keep up all of your hard work.
    I hope you and your family are safe and well.
    -Miss Godden :)
