Q:
# Katya measured the growth of a plant seedling. The seedling grew 1/3 inch by the end of the first week and another 5 / 6 inch by the end of the second week. About how much did the seedling grow in the first 2 weeks? Explain how you made your estimate.

Accepted Solution

A:

The seedling grew 1 1/6 inches or approximately 1.16 inches. 1/3 is equal to 2/6, 2/6 + 5/6 = 7/6

7/6 = 1 1/6

7/6 = 1 1/6
