How many kilometres did the students run on Thursday? To make the Leaning Tower of Pisa from spaghetti, Mrs. Her students were able to make 10 leaning towers in total.

During gym class on Wednesday, the students ran for ¼ of a kilometre.How many more marbles does Markus have in each bag? On Thursday, they ran ½ as many kilometres as on Wednesday.- [Voiceover] Rishi spend 3/4 of an hour for two days working on his science project.Kyle spent 1/4 of an hour for six days working on his science project. So we wanna know who spent more time, and to do that we need to first know the amount of time Rishi and Kyle each spent on their science projects.Or another way we could say this, is he spent 3/4 of an hour once, plus on a second day he spent another 3/4 of an hour. Kyle spent 1/4 of an hour, but he did this for six days, so six times, he spent 1/4 of an hour.So 3/4 plus another 3/4 will give us a total of 6/4, or six quarter hours, that Rishi spent on his science project. Or we could say that Kyle spent 1/4 of an hour one day, plus 1/4 of an hour a second day, 1/4 of an hour a third day, a fourth day, a fifth day, and then a sixth day he spent 1/4 of an hour.Which band has the higher ratio of trumpet to saxophone players?Mary surveyed students in her school to find out what their favourite sports were.
