Imagine you have apples that you have put into groups, with each group having 5 apples in it. If you take one group, you have 5 apples. This is the same as 5 x 1. 5 is how many apples per group you have. 1 is how many groups you take. If you take two groups of apples, you have 10 apples. This is the same as 5 x 2. Now consider if you don't take any groups of apples. How many apples would you have? You wouldn't have any. This is the same as 5 x 0.

The numerator is how much of the denominator. For example, if you have 3 green apples and 2 red apples, the total amount of apples is the denominator, 5. so, 3/5 of the apples are green, and 2/5 of the apples are red.

No, 3/8 is not bigger than 5/8. There are 8/8 in the whole. Think 8 apples. 3 apples are less than 5 apples.

3 out of 5 apples are red. That's three fifths, or 3 over 5 = 3/5. To convert this to a percentage we multiply by 100%/1. 3x100/5x1 = 300/5 % = 60% By decimal: 3/5= 0.6. 0.6 x 100 = 60%

you have 3

YOU would have 3 apples. You see, there are 5 apples, but you don't have those apples, if you take 3 away, then you are taking 3 of those apples, which then you have 3 apples, and you leave 2 left over.

5 apples because you took the 3 away

3 apples

If 'take away 3' means 'giving away the 3' to another then the answer is two (2) apples. Otherwise, If 'take away 3' means 'keeping the 3' to yourself and sharing the five (5) apples, the answer is three (3) apples. However, if 'take away 3' means 'keeping the 3' to yourself and still have the five (5) apples then the answer is eight (8) apples.

two apples Three apples. You take three, the other guy has two.

You would still have 5
