Welcome back to #MondayMath once again.
We have been posing Math questions every Monday on our Facebook page. These are questions that our students also encounter in Mathematics classes at B.D. Somani.
Last week, we asked for help in identifying counterfeit coins. This week, you need to help us measure water.
Parina has measuring cups of sizes 1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup, and 1/4 cup. She is trying to measure out 1/6 of a cup of water and says, “If I fill up the 1/2 cup and then put that into the 1/3 cup until it is full, there will be 1/6 cup of water left.”
Is Parina’s method correct? Explain.
