2. ### Slide 2 - Part a

• Mr. Edmunds shared 12 pencils among his four sons as follows:
• Alan received 1 / 3 of the pencils
• Bill received 1 / 4 of the pencils
• Carl received more than 1 pencil
• David received more pencils than Carl
• On the number line, represent the fraction of the total number of pencils that was given to both Alan and Bill combined.

6. ### Slide 6 - Part a

• Mr. Edmunds shared 12 pencils among his four sons as follows:
• Alan received 1 / 3 of the pencils
• Bill received 1 / 4 of the pencils
• Carl received more than 1 pencil
• David received more pencils than Carl
• On the number line, represent the fraction of the total number of pencils that was given to both Alan and Bill combined.

8. ### Slide 8 - Part b

• What fraction of the total number of pencils did Carl and David each receive? Justify your answer.
9. ### Slide 9 - Part b

• What fraction of the total number of pencils did Carl and David each receive? Justify your answer.
• Carl received 2 / 12 pencils and David received 3 / 12 pencils. In Part A of the problem, I found that Alan and Bill combined had been given 7 / 12 pencils, which left 5 pencils for Carl and David. In the problem, it said that Carl had more than one pencil and that David had more pencils than Carl. If Carl has 2 out of the 5 remaining pencils, that would leave 3 pencils for David. This works with the details in the problem because 2 is more than one (for Carl) and 3 is more than 2 (for David).
