  1. We had a variety of answers on this one, but one I did not expect was 7/ 3 4/8 = 2.0 Although I generally steer clear of complex fractions I thought this was a creative way to solve this “puzzle.”

  2. I figured out all the answers in less than a second

  3. More answers…

    1/5 = 0.2
    2/5 = 0.4
    3/5 = 0.6
    4/5 = 0.8
    3/2 = 1.5

    If you allow two-digit numbers, it gets more fun:
    48/30 = 1.6
    34/20 = 1.7
    … and I’m sure, many more.

  4. A student and I found 19 different answers, the halves from above, the fifths from above, as well as some impropers like
    7/5 =1.4
    6/5 = 1.2
    6/2 = 3.0
    7/2 = 3.5
    8/2 = 4.0
    9/2 = 4.5
    8/4 = 2.0
    This was a fun one!
