This is a single-equation algebra problem, and can be stated using the variable T to stand for the number of Third Grade students (our answer).The equation is Fifth Grade + Fourth Grade + Third Grade = 33 total members.In terms of T, this is (T+6) + (T) + (T) = 33Which reduces to 3T + 6 = 33 and 3T = 27 and T = 9.There are 9 third-grade students, 9 fourth-grade students, and 15 fifth-grade students = 33.

It depends on the teacher. Most students begin learning more about fractions in the second or third grade (:

One third is greater than two fifths.

5 and 1 third divided by 2 and 2 fifths = 22/9

I believe that 2 fifths is equivalent to a third.

Third through tenth grade.

You don't. Third grade boys are not interested in girls yet. They would rather play baseball and think girls have "Coodies ".
