A math teacher welcomed a new French exchange student into her class and then started teaching a fraction lesson.
The French exchange student raised his hand and said, “Excuse me, ma’am, but I don’t know how to say fractions. How do you say those?”
“Easy,” says the teacher, “just say the top number, and then the bottom number is read as an ordinal number. For example, 2/3 is “two-thirds”, 3/4 is ‘three-fourths’, and 2/5 is ‘two-fifths.”
“Thanks, I understand, “said the exchange student.
“Good,” the teacher said, then asked the student, “How do you say 4/8?”
“Should I reduce?” asked the boy.
“That would be best,” said the teacher.
“One second,” said the boy.
“Take as long as you need,” said the teacher.
L.Johnny Failed His Math Test
Little Johnny failed his math test dismally.
His mark was so bad, that his teacher called home to talk to his father.
When he returned home that afternoon, his father was standing crossly in the doorway.
“Why did you fail your math test?” he asked.
Little Johnny shrugged and said: “My teacher isn’t very good.”
His father was surprised by his excuse and asked Johnny to elaborate.
“Well, on Monday, my teacher said 3+5 = 8.”
“So?” his father answered.
“Then on Tuesday, she told us 4+4 = 8, and on Wednesday she said 6+2 = 8,” explained the boy.,
“If she doesn’t know what equals eight, how am I supposed to know the right answer?”
Hope this joke will make you smile! Have a nice day!!
