Fractions problem solving
a Grade 6 class had a debate on: Should school uniforms be compulsory in school?
before the debate started, 1/5 of the class were FOR the idea that uniforms should be compulsory.
after listening to both sides of the argument during the debate, 8 children changed sides.
the fraction for school uniform to be made compulsory is now 3/7.
how many children are there in the class together?
