Write your own story problem using mixed numbers that need to be scaled up. The problem should have at least five mixed numbers that will be scaled up. Be sure to show all your work, explain your steps in your solution (including changing improper fractions to mixed numbers), and write a complete answer to your problem. Your answer should include units for the mixed numbers, if needed. I do not understand the question, I cannot conduct a problem can somebody just give a mixed number problem or whatever and I will calculate it on my own. I am not asking you to do my work just to give me an example of what my teacher wants. Thanks

Jack has a cake and another half of a cake, Jill has 2 and 2/3rds cakes, Blake has 3 and 2/3rds of a cake, Peter has 4 and 2/3rds of a cake, and Daniel has 2 and a half cakes. How many cakes do they have in total? 1+1/2+2+2/3+3+2/3+4+2/3+2+1/2 = 6/6 (finding the least common multiple of 1, 2, and 3)+3/6+12/6+4/6+18/6+4/6+12/6+3/6= 90/6=15 cakes
