Team up with a buddy and share your thinking.  How is this picture an example of fractions, and how could we describe these fractions as decimals?

Serena and Alexandria

The lights are fractions because it been shaped into Three Thirds . So 1/3 of one light is 0.333.

2. Dillon, Lave and I.

We think the number 5 on the number plate is 1/2 as a fraction and as decimal it 2.5.

Eleva,Grace and Jessica thinks that lights on the car will be a fraction because if you look at it will be 1/3.So one light will be 0.3.33.

6. MaryL, Jay and I think that the Fraction/Decimal on the car is the light.
The reason why is because if you look close enough you can see that the lights are split into three and in the fraction for that is 3/3. The decimal for that is 1. But if it was 1/3 then it then answer would be 0.33 and that why we think that the answer is the lights.

7. Taeshell, and I think that the lights are fractions because, you can see that they are shaped into Three Thirds. So the decimal for 1/3 would be 0.33. First we divided 100 into thirds because 100 is 1 whole. So then we figured out the answer was 0.33.

8. Sapphire & I think that the lights have something to do with your question. On both of the lights you can clearly see 1\3 or 0.333.

9. Sarona, Mya and i think its the shy. because half of the shy is dark blue and the other half is light blue. So that will be 1/2 or 0.22
