Slide 2  Len walks 3 / 10 miles in the morning to school. He walks 2 / 5 miles in the afternoon to a friend’s house. Len says that he walks a total of 5 / 15 mile in the morning and afternoon. Which 2 statements are true?
 Since 3/10 plus 2/5 is 5/15, the total of 5/15 is reasonable.
 Since 5/15 is less than 2/5, the total of 5/15 is not reasonable.
 The fractions 5/15, 3/10, and 2/5 are all less than ½, so the total of 5/15 is reasonable.
 The fraction 5/15 is 1/3, and 1/3 is greater than 3/10. Since 5/15 is greater than one of the addends, the total of 5/15 is reasonable.
 The fractions 3/10 and 2/5 are each greater than ¼, so the total must be greater than ½. The fraction 5/15 is less than ½, so the total of 5/15 is not reasonable.
