Strategy: Drawing diagrams
In some fraction problems the whole is not given. A common mistake you might make is to multiply the fraction by any of the numbers in your problem. Don't be too quick to multiply. I suggest drawing a diagram of the fraction you are unsure of, then use it later. Take a look at these questions to see how drawing helps.
