Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The father did more.13/28 needs to be mowed which is 0.4643 of the lawn needs to be mowed.Step-by-step explanation:The best way to compare the two is to change them to decimals. That will at least answer who mowed the most.Father: 2/7 = 0.2857Son: 1/4 = 0.25Since the father mowed 2/7 of the lawn, he mowed the most.You can use the decimals to get the second part.Together they did 0.25 + 0.2857 = 0.5357The amount of the lawn left is 1 - 0.5357 = 0.4643================If you must have this in fractions then1/4 + 2/7 = 7/28 + 2*4/28 = 7/28 + 8/28 = 15/2815/28 = 0.5357 which is just what we got above.Amount left to do = 1- 15/28 = 13/28 13/28 = 0.4643 which is what we got about.
