4) Rica has 3 pieces of lace each measuring 1/7 meter, 5/14 meter, 377.

How long are the pieces of lace together?

5) May has 4/15 meter of lace while Lovie has 2/7 meter longer than May’s

lace. How many meters of lace do girls have altogether?

**4. **

**Answer:**

**13/14**

**Solution:**

[tex]\frac{1}{7} + \frac{5}{14} + \frac{3}{7} = \frac{1}{7}(\frac{2}{2}) + \frac{5}{14} + \frac{3}{7}(\frac{2}{2}) = \frac{2}{14} + \frac{5}{14} + \frac{6}{14} = \frac{2 + 5 + 6}{14} = \frac{13}{14}[/tex]

5.

**Answer:**

**86/105**

**Solution:**

Let x be the length of Lovie’s lace

Let y be the sum of the meters of lace of May and Lovie

x = [tex]\frac{2}{7} + \frac{4}{15}[/tex] = [tex]\frac{58}{105}[/tex]

y = [tex]\frac{4}{15}[/tex] + x

y = [tex]\frac{4}{15}[/tex] + [tex]\frac{58}{105}[/tex]

y = [tex]\frac{86}{105}[/tex]
