6-39.

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

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

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.

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