My Maths

WALT: devise a strategy to solve a fraction number problem 

I think I am at extended abstract because I can create something that shows others how to do this.
First, you find the fractions:

1 3/8 and 5 1/8

Then you add them together because it asks how much milk did they drink in all.
Add the whole numbers first.

5+1= 6

Then, you add the fractions, you add them by adding the numerators and keeping the denominator the same.

3/8 + 1/8= 4/8

Then you simplify 4/8 to 1/2

And you get 6 1/2
