7-108.

Answer each of the questions below.

1. How many fourths are in $4\frac { 1 } { 4 }$? Use your answer to rewrite $4\frac { 1 } { 4 }$ in the form $\frac { \square } { 4 }$.

If there are $4$ fourths in $1$, can you use multiplication to find how many fourths are in $4$?

Using your answer to Step 1, add the number of fourths in $4$ to the one fourth in part (a).

Remember to write your answer in the form above.

($4$ fourths)($4$) = ? fourths

$16\text{ fourths }+ 1\text { fourth} = \frac{?}{4}$

2. How many thirds are in $3\frac { 2 } { 3 }$? Use your answer to rewrite $3\frac { 2 } { 3 }$ in the form $\frac { \square } { 3 }$.

Use the same strategy here that you did in part (a).
How many thirds are in $1$?

Draw a diagram to help you solve the problem.

$\text{There are 11 thirds in }3\frac{2}{3},\text{ so }3\frac{2}{3}=\frac{11}{3}$
