{DMIC} Liquorice Lace

For yesterdays DMIC maths lesson some of us met on the ground to revise fractions and equivalent fractions. We then got a maths problem that went like "Jahzara has a liquorice lace that is 12cm long, she has 3 other friends. How is she going to split it evenly for the 4 of them?" so when we got passed down our liquorice lace we got onto dividing it evenly for 4. After that we had another question we then had to solve, it went like "Jahzara's other two friends want some as well, how will you divide it again so that each of them has equal pieces?". Lastly we just divided the 4 strings into 3 so that we had 12 strings in the end.

  1. Hi Tha Zin,

    I like your recount of the problem! What fraction would each friend receive in the end?
