Classroom Ages

This week one of our tasks were about fractions. The question was asking us how many children are there altogether. The first step I did to figure out the answer was to look at the question an understand that it said there was already 4 children in the classroom. So 4 + 4 = 8. Then I multiplied it by 3 from the 2/3 which equaled 24. 2/3 of 24 equal 16 so there were 16 ten year old's. 1/2 of the remaining 8 are 9 years old which means there are 4 nine year old's. The rest are 11 years old. I used my fraction, division and multiplication knowledge to figure out the answer.
