# Ms. Russell has 24 students in her class. 3/8 of the class went out for recess. 1/4 went to the library. The rest stayed in the classroom. a. What fraction of the class was out of the classroom?    I know this answer is 5/8 b. How many students is that?

Well, the total that went out is $\frac{3}{8}+\frac{1}{4}=\frac{3+2}{8}=\frac{5}{8}$ That is, $\frac{5}{8}*24=15$
