My son came home with homework tonight. Problem solving.

Question is : Yasu is making programs for the next band concert. He is using tan, gray, ivory and lemon colored paper. The cover design will be printed in either black, maroon, or purple ink. List all the different combinations he can make.

Well to me we know what color paper they are using 4 different colors tan, gray, ivory, lemon. 3 possible diffent inks. So would it 12 different combinations.

This is driving me insane.

You're correct
Tan maroon (1) purple (2) black (3)

Gray maroon (4) purple (5) black (6)

ivory maroon (7) purple (8) black (9)

Lemon maroon (10) purple (11) black (12)

Because you cannot mix paper and paper or ink with ink so that's the most possible choices I can come up with as well.

My son got a Dagonal Grid Paper for Equivalent fractions.
One sheet he has to figure is 1/4 find the equivalent fractions, 5/8 the same. The 5/8th one is colored in somewhat. I just don't get it ? Does anyone know how to fill the Diagonal Grid Paper in.
