    A. 3/8   ;   4/8    ;    6/8
    Explanation
    The set of fractions 3/8, 4/8, and 6/8 is in ascending order because the numerators of the fractions are the same (8) and the denominators increase from 3 to 4 to 6.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which set of fractions is in a descending order?

    • A.

      7/8     ;   7/10     ;    7/13    ;    7/18

    Correct Answer
    A. 7/8     ;   7/10     ;    7/13    ;    7/18
    Explanation
    The fractions are arranged in descending order based on their values. The denominator of each fraction is the same, so the fraction with the largest numerator will have the smallest value. Therefore, the fraction with the numerator 7/8 is the largest, followed by 7/10, then 7/13, and finally 7/18.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Calculate:   4/8  + 2/8  +   1/8  =

    • A.

      7/8

    • C.

      8/8

    Correct Answer
    B. 7/8
    Explanation
    To calculate the sum of fractions, we need to have the same denominator. In this case, all the fractions have a denominator of 8. Adding the numerators, we get 4 + 2 + 1 = 7. Therefore, the sum of the fractions is 7/8.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Calculate:   8/12 - 4/12 =

    • A.

      4/12

    • B.

      12/12

    • C.

      8/12

    Correct Answer
    A. 4/12
    Explanation
    The given question asks to calculate the subtraction of 4/12 from 8/12. To subtract fractions, we need to have a common denominator. In this case, both fractions already have the same denominator of 12. So, we can directly subtract the numerators. Subtracting 4 from 8 gives us 4. Therefore, the answer is 4/12.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Calculate:  (4/10 + 5/10) - 3/10 =

    • A.

      9/10

    • B.

      6/10

    • C.

      12/10

    Correct Answer
    B. 6/10
    Explanation
    The given expression involves adding fractions with a common denominator and then subtracting another fraction. By adding 4/10 and 5/10, we get 9/10. Then, by subtracting 3/10 from 9/10, we get 6/10 as the final result.
