My Test Corrections

My first mistake was on the top section. It was this question:

In computer terminology, a bit is 1/8 of a byte. How many bits equal 16 bytes?

I did this solution:

16/1 x 1/8 = 16/8 or 2

The solution and answer was wrong it's supposed to be:

16/1 divided by 1/8 = 16/1 x 8/1= 128 bits.

My second mistake was:

1 1/2 divided by 2/3

This is what I did:

1 1/2 divided by 2/3= 3/2 x 3/2= 9/2 or 4 1/2

I didn't multiply the denominator 2.

This the correct solution:

1 1/2 divided by 2/3= 3/2 x 3/2 = 9/4 or 2 1/4

My last mistake was in the bottom part.

My question was wrong in the third picture:

I wrote share 1/4 into 1/3 equal groups.

It's supposed to be: How many groups of 1/3 goes into 1/4.

Good job Carlo. I liked how you explained it well and also on how you found a video. Maybe next time you should add a link and maybe make your pictures a bit easier for us to see. Overall you did a good job!

ReplyDeleteGood job! I liked how you explained it enough for me to understand. Good video too! I kind of struggled seeing the pictyres clearly, but other than that, good job.
