### Michelle's four 4's post

Today in Math class, Mr.Harbeck and Mr. Bache told us to explain " Why is 4/4 + 4/4 = 2 and 4 ÷4 + 4 ÷4 = 2 the same ? "

I think they are the same because 4/4 is one whole and if you add another whole (4/4) , it will be equal to two wholes. Also, 4
÷ 4 = 1 and if you do that again and add the two sums together, you will get 2. To me they are the same thing, but with different signs.

And I think the " line " in a fraction that separates the numerator from the denominator also means divide, just written differently.

So its the same thing , in My opinion.
