Adults need eight hours of sleep
per day. What fraction of the day is
this? Give your answer in simplest
form.

We can identify that in our
problem, we have these two pieces of information, eight hours of sleep is what they
need per day. We also know that that means 24
hours. So, we can start with our fraction
of eight twenty-fourths. We then need to reduce the fraction
just like all the others we’ve practiced. Eight and 24 share a common factor
of eight, so we’re gonna divide the numerator and the denominator by eight here. When you divide the numerator and
the denominator by eight, you get the simplified fraction one-third. Based on the information given,
that would mean that adults need to sleep one-third of the day.
