6-39.

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

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

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).

$\text{16\ fourths + 1\ fourth = \frac{?}{4}}$
$\text{There are 11 thirds in }3\frac{2}{3},\text{ so }3\frac{2}{3}=\frac{11}{3}$
