Business Math and Statistical Measures Real World Fraction Problem The website I found for a real world fraction problem is httpwwwbasic mathematicscomadding fractions word problemshtml The problem is I need to figure out how much total pepper is needed for a recipe There is black pepper red pepper and cayenne pepper The problem is asking for the total amount of all pepper There is teaspoon of black pepper IA teaspoon of red pepper and 12 teaspoon of cayenne pepper Basic Mathematics 2008 The first thing we need to figure out is if we need to add subtract multiply or diVide to get our answer To figure out what we need to do we look for key words in the problem For example the problems asks what is the total amount of pepper needed This means we need to add the 3 fractions together To add fractions the denominators have to be the same To find a common denominator we have to figure out what the lowest common denominator is For IA and 12 the lowest common denominator will be 4 Basic Mathematic 2008 So the solution will be IA 12 44 24 94 2 IA This means that the recipe calls for a total of 2 IA teaspoons of pepper Basic Mathematic 2008 A different EEh 39 l ed thu ught 39 K P LA Nl
