When you look at this problem you have to think about fractions and multiplication. You also have to think about patterns in the fractions and pictures. For example, what it gives you is 1/1, 2/3, 4/9, 8/27, and 16/81. When you look at the numerators, you can see that 1x2=2. Then when you take 2 and multiply it by 2 you get 4 (2x2=4). Remember that you multiply every numerator by 2! Then when you take 4x2, you get an answer of 8. You just need to know that you multiply every numerator by 2 and you could keep going to infinity and beyond. When you look at the denominators, you multiply everything by 3, for example, when you have 1/1 or 1 whole you take 1 (the denominator) and multiply it by 3 to get three (1x3=3). You could use that same algorithm to get large numbers like 64/729. What I'm going to try to do is get some large numbers and share them with you on my blog.

Hi, i'm in Mrs. Smith's 5th grade math group. I look forward to blogging because I did it last year in 4th grade and enjoyed it a lot! I enjoy math, reading, sports, science, and social studies. I look forward to hearing back from you and I will try to write back as much as I can! These are some things about me.
