Math Wizard
(decimal for 7ths - oooh)
• 7 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 1 = 2 + 2 + 2 + a little more (3 * 2 + a little
more)
• 2 * 7 = 14
• 2 * 14 = 28
• 2 * 28 + a little more = 57
• 1/7 = 0.142857142857…
• 2/7 = 0.285714285714…
• 3/7 = 0.428571428571…
• 4/7 = 0.571428571428…
• 5/7 = 0.714285714285…
• 6/7 = 0.857142857142…
