first one is 2/3
2/3rds, 3/20ths
120/180 = 12/18 = 6/9 = 2/3

12/80 = 6/40 = 3/20
the other is 3/20
haha was a bit slow with the 2nd
120 out of 180 is 2/3 (two thirds)
12 out of 80 is 3/20 (three twentieths).
the key to solving fractions is just divide them to their lowst amounts... so halving or dividing by 3 usually helps! I take it your daughter is super young.. as those were easy!
thank you.
Check out the big brains on us lot!
second one is 3/20

LOL.... too slow! ^^^^^
thanks to all. yes she is young.
thanks to all. yes she is young.

I used to find this company of book really really helpful... they sell their books all over the place including waterstones and probably at your daughter's school!

get one in a subject she has trouble in and see if she likes it... and if she does get her some for the rest of her subjects.. I used them for GCSEs and I came away with 13GCSEs :thumbsup:
If she's doing KS2 (in Junior School), there's some good simple explanations & examples here :

thanks will have a look.
