    but closer to Ramon.  To get to school,

    one student walks 0.5 mi., another walks 1.1 mi.,

    Luis wrote a fraction and then renamed it as a decimal.

    Elsie has an apple pie and a cherry pie.  She and her friends eat 0.5 of the apple pie.  Her brother eats 0.3 of the cherry pie. Elise’s dad has 0.2 of the apple pie.  He then eats 0.1 more of the cherry pie that Elise’s brother ate. If Elise puts the leftover pie pieces together, how much of a whole pie is left?

    How would YOU solve this problem?
