Lesson 8.5

Write the fraction that names the point.

Question 1.
point A: $$\frac{□} {□}$$

Answer: $$\frac{1} {6}$$

Explanation:

The number lies between 0 and 1. Each point is 1 sixth of the number line. So, it starts with 0/6 and ends on 6/6.
Now we have to locate the point A.
The point A lies between 0/6 and 2/6. The number between 0 and 2 is 1.
Thus the point A is $$\frac{1} {6}$$

Question 2.
point B: $$\frac{□} {□}$$

Answer: $$\frac{3} {6}$$

Explanation:

The point B lies between $$\frac{2} {6}$$ and $$\frac{4} {6}$$. The number between 2 and 4 is 3. Thus the location of point B is $$\frac{3} {6}$$.

Question 3.
point C: $$\frac{□} {□}$$

Answer: $$\frac{5} {6}$$

Explanation:

The point C is located between $$\frac{4} {6}$$ and $$\frac{6} {6}$$.
The number between 4 and 6 is 5. Thus the location of Point C is $$\frac{5} {6}$$

Lesson 8.6

Each shape is 1 whole. Write a fraction greater than 1 for the parts that are shaded.

Question 4.

2 = $$\frac{□} {□}$$

Answer: $$\frac{8} {4}$$

Explanation:

There are 2 circles and each circle is equally divided into 4 groups.
Number in each group = 4
Number of equal parts = 8
The shaded part of the circle = $$\frac{8} {4}$$

Question 5.

3 = $$\frac{□} {□}$$

Answer: $$\frac{18} {6}$$

Explanation:

Number of circles = 3
Number of equal parts = 18
Number of shaded part in each circle = 6
So, the fraction of the shaded part is $$\frac{18} {6}$$

Lesson 8.7

Write a fraction to name the shaded part of each group.

Question 6.

$$\frac{□} {□}$$

Answer: $$\frac{3} {6}$$ or $$\frac{1} {2}$$

Explanation:

There are 6 circles, in which 3 circles are shaded and 3 circles are not shaded.
So, the fraction name for the shaded part is $$\frac{3} {6}$$ or $$\frac{1} {2}$$

Question 7.

$$\frac{□} {□}$$

Answer: $$\frac{1} {4}$$ or $$\frac{2} {8}$$

Explanation:

The figure shows that there are 8 circles and in that 2 circles are shaded.
So, the fraction name for the shaded part is $$\frac{2} {8}$$ or $$\frac{1} {4}$$

Lessons 8.8–8.9
