Q: What does it mean for a fraction to be close to a benchmark?

Write your answer...

benchmark fractions mean

300/400 or 3/4

A benchmark fraction is the bar line in the middle of the fraction. :)

I had to look up what a benchmark fraction is. It looks like the benchmark fractions are 1/10, 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4.Of these, 1/2 is the closest to 94/156. It is actually very close to 6/10, but I guess that's not one of them.

What benchmark fraction is closest to each point in the letter E

It depends what the benchmark is!

112 is an integer and so there is no sensible way to represent it as a fraction - whether benchmark or otherwise.

yes 2/4 is because it is equivalent to 1/2 which is a benchmark fraction.

It has to be between these four fractions 1/2,1/3,2/3, and 3/4

They are fractions which a user is familiar with or comfortable with, and which can be used to compare a given fraction.

Yes.

you put it over 1 for example: to make the number 5 into a benchmark fraction, you would turn it into 5/1

A benchmark fraction is one that you can remember easily. In the context of time (hours in a day, months in a year, inches in a foot) 5/12 is a convenient fraction.

find the benchmark for the number6,000

No, four sevenths is not a benchmark fraction beacause benchmark fractions are used to estimate and they are easy to picture in your mind. 4 out of seven is not a very good estimate for something and it is not easy to picture in your head. Right?

1/4 is exactly half way between 0 and 1/2.
