Mr. Sommers spent 10 minutes of his 50 minute math period reviewing homework. Mr. Young spent 12 minutes of his 60 minute math period reviewing homework. Which teacher spent a greater fraction of his math period reviewing homework?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! Hope your day is going well!

The goal is to first put what you know.

Mr. Sommers spent 10 minutes of his 50 minute math period. So his fraction before simplified is 10/50.

Mr. Young spent 12 minutes of his 60 minute math period. So his fraction before it is simplified is 12/60.

I meant for Mr. Young *divide both by 6*

Thank you so much, have a great night.
