### Lesson 7.1 Estimate Sums and Differences of Fractions

**Activity**

**Solve&Share**

Jack needs about 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) yards of string. He has three pieces of string that are different lengths. Without finding the exact amount, which two pieces should he choose to get closest to 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) yards of string? Solve this problem any way you choose.

**Reasoning** You can use number sense to estimate the answer. Show your work!

Answer:

**Look Back!** How can a number line help you estimate?

Answer: It helps me to estimate the appropriate answer. It makes easy to add the yards and easy to find the yards which are closet to the given yard. It is somewhat in a elaborate way.

**Visual Learning Bridge**

**Essential Question** How Can You Estimate the Sum of Two Fractions?

**A.**

Mr. Fish is welding together two copper pipes to repair a leak. He will use the pipes shown. Is the new pipe closer to \(\frac{1}{2}\) foot or 1 foot long? Explain.

**B.**

**Step 1**

Replace each fraction with the nearest half or whole. A number line can make it easy to decide if each fraction is closest to 0, \(\frac{1}{2}\), or 1.

\(\frac{1}{6}\) is between 0 and 2, but is closer to 0.

\(\frac{5}{12}\) is also between 0 and 2, but is closer to the benchmark fraction \(\frac{1}{2}\).

**C.**

**Step 2**

Add to find the estimate.

A good estimate of \(\frac{1}{6}\) + \(\frac{5}{12}\) is 0 + \(\frac{1}{2}\), or \(\frac{1}{2}\). So, the welded pipes will be closer to 2 foot than 1 foot long

Since each addend is less than 5, it is reasonable that their sum is less than 1.

**Convince Me!** **Critique Reasoning** Nolini says that if the denominator is more than twice the numerator, the fraction can always be replaced with 0. Is she correct? Give an example in your explanation.

Answer: Yes,

It depends on how accurate you want your answer to be, but basically yes, imagine we set our numerator to be x, and our denominator to be 2x, if we built our fraction we will get that: If the denominator of a fraction is exactly twice the numerator, then the fraction will be simplified to 1/2 or 0.5.Now, the greater the denominator is, the closer the fraction will get to zero.

Take for example I had an fraction like this:

which approximates to 0. If we made the denominator bigger, let’s say 7, we would get:

notice the answer is closer to 0 this time, so it’s valid to round it to zero. If we made the denominator greater, let’s say 25, we would get: and so on. So it is true that if the denominator of a fraction is greater than twice the numerator, we can always replace the fraction with a 0

(depending on how accurate you want your answer to be).

**Guided Practice**

**Do You Understand?**

Question 1.

In the problem at the top of page 270, would you get the same estimate if Mr. Fish’s pipes measured foot and \(\frac{7}{12}\) foot?

Answer:

Yes, The estimation would be the same because Mr. Fish’s pipes measured foot is \(\frac{1}{6}\) + \(\frac{5}{12}\) = 0.5 and the \(\frac{7}{12}\) = 0.5

Question 2.

Number Sense If a fraction has a 1 in the numerator and a number greater than 2 in the denominator, will the fraction be closer to 0, \(\frac{1}{2}\), or 1? Explain.

Answer:

If a fraction has a 1 in the numerator and a number greater than 2 in the denominator, will the fraction be closer to \(\frac{1}{2}\) because the numerator is 1 and the denominator is 2 that means \(\frac{1}{2}\) = 0.5

The fractions \(\frac{1}{3}\) and \(\frac{1}{4}\) can be renamed with equivalent fractions.

Fractions that have the same denominators, such as \(\frac{4}{12}\) and \(\frac{3}{12}\), are said to have common denominators.

**Convince Me! Use Appropriate Tools** Draw rectangles such as the ones above to find fractions equivalent to \(\frac{2}{5}\) and \(\frac{1}{3}\) that have the same denominator.

Answer:

**Another Example**

Find a common denominator for \(\frac{2}{3}\) and \(\frac{5}{6}\). Then rename each fraction with an equivalent fraction.

**One Way**

Multiply the denominators to find a common denominator: 3 × 6 = 18.

Write equivalent fractions with denominators of 18.

**Another Way**

Use the fact that one denominator is a multiple of the other.

You know that 6 is a multiple of 3.

Question 14.

Nelda baked two kinds of pasta in pans. Each pan was the same size. She sliced one pan of pasta into 6 equal pieces. She sliced the other pan into 8 equal pieces. How can the pans of pasta now be sliced so that both pans have the same-sized pieces? Draw on the pictures to show your work. If Nelda has served 6 pieces from one pan so far, what fraction of one pan has she served?

Answer:

To reach her goal that both pans should have same sized pieces. So,

\(\frac{1}{6}\) x 4 pieces = \(\frac{1}{24}\). Therefore to set goal for the other pan also she needs to multiply with 3 pieces \(\frac{1}{8}\) x 3 = \(\frac{1}{24}\). So, Finally she sets her goal.

If Nelda has served 6 pieces from one pan so far, then there will be \(\frac{1}{24}\) – \(\frac{1}{6}\) = \(\frac{1}{18}\) will be left.

**Activity**

**Solve & Share**

Rose bought the length of copper pipe shown below. She used 5 yard to repair a water line in her house. How much pipe does she have left? Solve this problem any way you choose.

You can use mental math to find equivalent fractions so that \(\frac{1}{2}\) and \(\frac{4}{6}\) will have like denominators. Show your work!

Answer:-

**Look Back! Generalize** How is subtracting fractions with unlike denominators similar to adding fractions with unlike denominators?

Answer:- Subtracting fractions with unlike denominators similar to adding fractions with unlike denominators because in addition firstly we do to set denominators alike and then we add them. Same here also of unlike denominators are there we do them alike and then we subtract. Adding and subtracting is the only difference remaining all the steps are same.

**Visual Learning Bridge**

**Essential Question** How Can You Subtract Fractions with Unlike Denominators?

**A.**

Linda used \(\frac{1}{4}\) yard of the fabric she bought for a sewing project. How much fabric did she have left?

You can use subtraction to find how much fabric was left.

**B.**

**Step 1**

Find a common multiple of the denominators.

Multiples of 3: 3,6,9,12,…

Multiples of 4: 4, 8, 12,…

The number 12 is a multiple of 3 and 4. Write equivalent fractions with a denominator of 12 for \(\frac{2}{3}\) and \(\frac{1}{4}\).

**C.**

**Step 2**

Use the Identity Property to rename the fractions with a common denominator.

**C.**

**Step 3**

Subtract the numerators.

Linda has \(\frac{5}{12}\) yard of fabric left.

**Convince Me! Critique Reasoning** Suppose Linda had \(\frac{2}{3}\) of a yard of fabric and told Sandra that she used of a yard. Šandra says this is not possible. Do you agree? Explain your answer.

Answer:- No, That is not possible because Linda had \(\frac{2}{3}\) of a yard that is 0.6 yard then how can she use 1 yard of fabric that is why Sandra says this is not possible. So, here Sandra is correct in her way and Linda cannot use the 1 yard of fabric.

**Guided Practice**

**Do You Understand?**

Question 1.

In the example on page 282, is it possible to use a common denominator greater than 12 and get the correct answer? Why or why not?

Answer: We use the common denominator by figuring common multiply factors in the fraction if in the above example if we got common factor which is greater than 12 then it is always possible to get denominator which is greater than 12.

In the above example if we got common factor as 20 then it is easy to get denominator which is actually greater than 12 and if not we have to go with the common factor either 12 or below 12.

Question 2.

In the example on page 282, if Linda had started with one yard of fabric and used \(\frac{5}{8}\) of a yard, how much fabric would be left?

Answer: Linda had one yard of fabric and she used \(\frac{5}{8}\) of a yard, The she left with 1 – \(\frac{5}{8}\) = 0.4

Answer:

\(\frac{7}{10}\) = \(\frac{7}{10}\) x \(\frac{5}{5}\) = \(\frac{21}{50}\)

\(\frac{2}{5}\) = \(\frac{2}{5}\) x \(\frac{10}{10}\) = \(\frac{20}{50}\)

\(\frac{21}{50}\) – \(\frac{20}{50}\) = \(\frac{1}{50}\)

Question 14.

\(\frac{13}{16}\) – \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Answer:

\(\frac{13}{16}\) = \(\frac{13}{16}\) x \(\frac{4}{4}\) = \(\frac{52}{64}\)

\(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{1}{4}\) x \(\frac{16}{16}\) = \(\frac{16}{64}\)

\(\frac{52}{64}\) – \(\frac{16}{64}\) = \(\frac{36}{64}\)

Question 20.

**Number Sense** Without using paper and pencil, how would you find the sum of 9.8 and 2.6?

Answer: The sum of 9.8 and 2.6 is 9.8 + 2.6 = 12.4

Question 21.

**Higher Order Thinking** Find two fractions with a difference of \(\frac{1}{5}\) but with neither denominator equal to 5.

Answer:

There an infinite family of solutions. Any two fractions of the form:

(a+ b)/5a and b/5a

will work. Thus,

(a+b)/5a – b/5a = (a+b-b)/5a = a/5a = 1/5

of course, you can multiply each of the above fraction by 1, written as c/c, so you have c(a+b)/5ac if you wish to further obfuscate things. Similarly, you can also multiply the second fraction by 1 to get bd/5bd.

I’m sure there are other general answers as well, if an infinity of solutions is insufficient. You may wish to be sure that the product ac is even, so 5 won’t appear at all in the fraction as the last digit.

**Number Sense** Kevin estimated the difference of \(\frac{9}{10}\) – \(\frac{4}{8}\) to be 0. Is his estimate reasonable? Explain.

Answer:

\(\frac{9}{10}\) = \(\frac{9}{10}\) x \(\frac{8}{8}\) = \(\frac{72}{80}\)

\(\frac{4}{8}\) = \(\frac{4}{8}\) x \(\frac{10}{10}\) = \(\frac{40}{80}\)

\(\frac{72}{80}\) – \(\frac{40}{80}\) = \(\frac{32}{80}\) = 0.4

Kevin estimated the difference of \(\frac{9}{10}\) – \(\frac{4}{8}\) to be 0 and his estimation was wrong because 0.4 is closest to \(\frac{1}{2}\) not closest to 0

Use \(\frac{1}{2}\) as a benchmark fraction.

Replace each fraction with the nearest \(\frac{1}{2}\) unit.

1\(\frac{5}{8}\) is close to 1\(\frac{1}{2}\).

2\(\frac{1}{4}\) is halfway between 2 and 2\(\frac{1}{2}\)

You can replace 2\(\frac{1}{4}\) with 2\(\frac{1}{2}\).

**Essential Question** How Can You Model Subtraction question of Mixed Numbers?

**A.**

James needs 1\(\frac{11}{12}\) inches of pipe to repair a small part of a bicycle frame. He has a pipe that is 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) inches long. Does he have enough pipe left over to fix a \(\frac{3}{4}\)-inch piece of frame on another bike?

Rename 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) as 2\(\frac{6}{12}\) that the fractions have a common denominator.

**B.**

**Step 1**

Model the number you are subtracting from, 2\(\frac{6}{12}\)

If the fraction you will be subtracting is greater than the fraction part of the number you model, rename 1 whole.

Since \(\frac{11}{12}\) > \(\frac{6}{12}\), rename 1 whole as \(\frac{12}{12}\).

**Step 2**

Use your renamed model to cross out the number that you are subtracting, 1\(\frac{11}{12}\)

There are \(\frac{7}{12}\) left.

So, 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) – 1\(\frac{11}{12}\) = \(\frac{7}{12}\)

James will have \(\frac{7}{12}\) inch of pipe left. He does not have enough for the other bike.

**Set A**

pages 269-272

Estimate the sum or difference by replacing each fraction with 0, \(\frac{1}{2}\), or 1.

Estimate \(\frac{4}{5}\) + \(\frac{5}{8}\)

**Step 1**

\(\frac{4}{5}\) is close to 1.

**Step 2**

\(\frac{5}{8}\) is close to \(\frac{4}{8}\) or \(\frac{1}{2}\)

**Step 3**

1 + \(\frac{1}{2}\) = 1\(\frac{1}{2}\)

**Step 1**

\(\frac{7}{12}\) is closes to \(\frac{6}{12}\) or \(\frac{1}{2}\).

**Step 2**

\(\frac{1}{8}\) is close to 0.

**Step 3**

\(\frac{1}{2}\) – 0 = \(\frac{1}{2}\)

So, \(\frac{7}{12}\) – \(\frac{1}{8}\) is about \(\frac{1}{2}\).

**Remember** that you can use as number line to decide if a fraction is closest to 0, \(\frac{1}{2}\), or 1.

Estimate each sum or difference.

Question 8.

\(\frac{3}{5}\) – \(\frac{1}{12}\)

Answer:

**Set B**

pages 273-276

Find a common denominator for \(\frac{4}{9}\) and \(\frac{1}{3}\). Then rename each fraction as an equivalent fraction with the common denominator.

**Step 1**

Multiply the denominators:

9 × 3 = 27, so 27 is a common denominator.

**Step 2**

Rename the fractions:

\(\frac{4}{9}\) = \(\frac{4}{9}\) × \(\frac{3}{3}\) = \(\frac{4}{9}\)

\(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{1}{3}\) × \(\frac{9}{9}\) = \(\frac{9}{27}\)

So, \(\frac{4}{9}\) = \(\frac{12}{27}\) and \(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{9}{27}\).

**Remember** you can check to see if one denominator is a multiple of the other. Since 9 is a multiple of 3, another common denominator for the fractions and is 9. Find a common denominator. Then rename each fraction as an equivalent fraction with the common denominator.

Answer:

**Set C**

pages 277-280, 281-284, 285-288

Find \(\frac{5}{6}\) – \(\frac{3}{4}\)

**Step 1**

Find a common denominator by listing multiples of 6 and 4.

6:6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42

4:4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32

12 is a common multiple of 6 and 4, so use 12 as the common denominator.

**Step 2**

Use the Identity Property to write equivalent fractions.

\(\frac{5}{6}\) = \(\frac{5 \times 2}{6 \times 2}\) = \(\frac{10}{12}\)

\(\frac{3}{4}\) = \(\frac{3 \times 3}{4 \times 3}\) = \(\frac{9}{12}\)

**Step 3**

Subtract.

\(\frac{10}{12}\) – \(\frac{9}{12}\) = \(\frac{1}{12}\)

**Remember** to multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number when writing an equivalent fraction.

**Set D**

pages 289-292

Estimate 5\(\frac{1}{3}\) + 9\(\frac{9}{11}\)

To round a mixed number to the nearest whole number, compare the fraction part of the mixed number to \(\frac{1}{2}\).

If the fraction part is less than \(\frac{1}{2}\), round to the nearest lesser whole number.

5\(\frac{1}{3}\) rounds to 5.

If the fraction part is greater than or equal to \(\frac{1}{2}\), round to the nearest greater whole number.

9\(\frac{9}{11}\) rounds to 10.

So, 5\(\frac{1}{3}\) + 9\(\frac{9}{11}\) ≈ 5 + 10 = 15.

**Remember** that means ≈ is approximately equal to.”

**Remember** that you can also use benchmark fractions such as \(\frac{1}{4}\), \(\frac{1}{3}\), \(\frac{1}{2}\), and \(\frac{3}{4}\) to help you estimate.

Find 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) + 1\(\frac{7}{8}\)

**Step 1**

Rename the fractions with a common denominator. Model the addends and add the fractional parts.

**Step 2**

Add the whole numbers to the regrouped fractions.

So, 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) + 1\(\frac{7}{8}\) = 3\(\frac{1}{8}\)

pages 301-304

Find 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) – 1\(\frac{5}{6}\). Rename 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) as 2\(\frac{2}{6}\)

**Step 1**

Model the number you are subtracting from, 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) or 2\(\frac{2}{6}\)

Since \(\frac{5}{6}\) > \(\frac{2}{6}\), rename 1 whole as \(\frac{6}{6}\)

**Step 2**

Cross out the number you are subtracting, 1\(\frac{5}{6}\).

The answer is the amount that is left.

So, 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) – 1\(\frac{5}{6}\) = \(\frac{3}{6}\) or \(\frac{1}{2}\)

**Remember** that the difference is the part of the model that is not crossed out. Use a model to find each difference.
