**Unlock the Problem**

Steve ran \(\frac{3}{4}\) mile and Jenna ran \(\frac{4}{4}\) of a mile. Did Steve and Jenna run the same distance?

**Math Idea**

If two numbers are located at the same point on a number line, then they are equal and represent the same distance from zero.

Locate \(\frac{3}{4}\) and \(\frac{4}{4}\) on a number line.

- Label the number line.
- Draw a point at \(\frac{3}{4}\) and \(\frac{4}{4}\).

Since the distance ________ and _______ are not at the same point, they are not the same distance from zero.

**H.O.T. **What’s the Error?

Question 7.

Andrea and Elaina were making material bags. Andrea bought \(\frac{4}{8}\) of a yard of material and Elaina bought \(\frac{1}{2}\) yard of material. Elaina said she bought more material than Andrea did.

Analyze Look at how Elaina solved the problem. Find her error.

Use Math Language Describe Elaina’s error.

Answer:

No, Elaina and Andrea bought the same amount of material.

Explanation:

Andrea bought \(\frac{4}{8}\) of material and Elaina bought \(\frac{1}{2}\) of material. Therefore by comparing both we can say that both bought the same amount of material.

Question 8.

**H.O.T. Multi-Step** Jeff rode his bike around a bike trail that was \(\frac{1}{4}\) mile long. He rode around the trail 4 times. Dexter rode around the trail 2 times. Complete the number line to show the distances that Jeff and Dexter rode.

Use Tools Did Dexter ride the same distance as Jeff? Explain how you know.

Answer:

No. Dexter rides the same distance as Jeff.

Explanation:

Jeff rode his bike at \(\frac{1}{4}\) mile long. He rode 4 trails. That means jeff rode at a fraction of \(\frac{4}{4}\).

Dexter rode around 2 trail times. That means Dexter rode \(\frac{2}{4}\).

**Problem Solving**

Question 7.

Harley and Noreen were making kites. Harley has \(\frac{3}{4}\) of a yard of yellow kite string. Noreen has \(\frac{6}{8}\) of a yard of green kite string. She says that she has more kite string than Harley. How can Harley draw a number line to show that Noreen is incorrect? Write a sentence to explain how you solved the problem.

Answer:

No, the statement is incorrect.

Explanation:

They both have the same amount of string. As Harley has \(\frac{3}{4}\) of a yard of yellow string. Noreen has \(\frac{6}{8}\) of a yard of the green kite. Hence they both have the same amount of string.
