Who is asking: Parent
Can you have 5/4 of something?
Five fourths is another way to express one and one quarter
5/4 = 4/4
+ 1/4 = 1 1/4
and you can have one and one quarter of something. A dollar coin and
a quarter make five fourths of a dollar. A cup and a quarter of sugar
is five fourths of a cup. Fifteen inches is five fourths of a foot.
I hope this helps,
