stupid 5th grade math problem causing issues



  • Hi,

    this is nuts... the husband and I are disagreeing on how to workt his out for the kiddo. How would you work out this problem? Obviously we know she spent 10 dollars, but we cannot agree on how to come up with the fractions.Writing in Math:Jacqueline has four 5bills.Sheboughtashirtfor5 bills. She bought a shirt for 10. She spent half of her money. explain how much money Jacqueline spent. Use Equivalent fractions.clarification: one of us wants this to be 20/1 - 10/1 = 10/1, the other is saying that's not what equivalent fractions are, so it should be 10/20 = 1/2

    help?

    Please help.

    I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
