Fractional Measurement
When working with measurements containing fractions all rules covering fractions apply.
Be sure you can add subtract multiply and divide fractions before you start this movie.

You can also convert the fraction to the lower measure. Thus 1/2 of a foot is 6 inches and 1/4 of a pound is 4 ounces. The following movie will help you do this.

A scrap box should be used to do the calculations. Try not to get into the habit of doing your scrap work on another piece of paper. It is much easier to find a mistake if all the work is in front of you and located close to the problem.
