This is 6th grade math! I've been having really bad grades in math, especially in estimating and rounding fractions.  Example: Is 5 6/9 closer to 5, 5 1/2 or 6?  Brian wanted to wallpaper a wall that was 8 1/8 feet tall and 5 ¾ wide. How many square feet does Brian need? Help?

6/9 is the same as 2 thirds. I found a visual illustration was easiest for me to understand with this type of thing. get three glasses, measure (in cups) 2/3, 1/2 and 1 and you'll easilly be able to see the answer for yourself. for the second won all you need to do is convert the fractions into percentages and get the actual number in feet, then you can just do it like a normal area problem.

I'm sarcastic a lot. If I offended you I probably didn't mean to. Probably.
