Landowner Problem
1. Determine what fraction of a section each person owns and type that fraction on
the Map. (Notice there are 2 sections)
2. If Fuentes and Theule combine their land, what fraction of a section would they
own? Write a mathematical sentence to show your solution.
Fuentes’ initial fraction=1/32
Theule’s initial fraction=3/32
When they combine their land, total fraction becomes 1/32+3/32 = 4/32 = 1/8
3. Lapp and Wong went on a land-buying spree and bought up all of section 18. Lapp
bought all of Gardella's, Fuentes's and Fitz's land. Wong bought the rest.
a. When the buying was completed, what fraction of section 18 did Lapp
own?
Let area of section 18 be x
Lapp’s initial area = 2x*1/8
Gardella’s initial are = 2x*3/32
Fuentes’s initial area = 2x*1/32
Fitz’s initial are = 2x*5/64
So total new area owned by Lapp = 2x*1/8 + 2x*3/32 + 2x*1/32 + 2x*5/64
= 2x* (1/8+3/32+1/32+5/64)
= 2x*21/64
