## More or Less Than 1

1/2 + 3/4

Is the sum of 1/2 and 3/4 more or less than 1? You don't have to figure out. You don't have to figure out the exact answer. Can you picture these fractions? What do you know about them?

4/8 + 2/8

More or Less?

5/8 + 7/8

More or Less?

Do you think the sum of 5/6 + 7/8 will be closer to 1 or 2?
