How many twelfths are there in 3? 3/4? and 1/4?
How it needs to be calculated?
Thanks for your help.
I am not a teacher so this method may not be ideal. However this is how I taught my dd and she understood it.
How many twelfths in 3? If you imagine 3 as a fraction then it would be 3/1. Since we need the answer in twelfths, we need to multiply the denominator (in this case the 1) by 12 . But, if we mulitply the denominator by 12 then the numerator must also be multiplied by 12. If you do this calculation, the answer will be 36/12. Thus there are 36 tewlfths in 3. Try doing the same to 3/4 and 1/4.
Apologies in advance if this method is not quite how they are taught at school. I am ceratin one of the very kind teachers will verify this.
