**Answer:**</u></h3>

The jars that Ming can use are:

**Jar A**

**Jar C**

**and Jar D**

<h3><u>

**Step-by-step explanation:**</u></h3>

Ming needs 1/2 pint of red paint for an art project.

He has 6 jars that have the following amounts of red paint in them:

A. 2/3 pint

B. 1/4 pint

C. 4/6 pint

D. 3/4 pint

E. 3/8 pint

F. 2/6 pint

He wants to use only 1 jar of paint.

i.e. the jar which has less than 1/2 pint of paint can't be used.

**<u>A jar:</u>**

It has 2/3 pint of paint now we need to check whether this quantity is less than or grater than equal to 1/2.

We try to make the denominator same of both the quantities.

As:

2/3=4/6

Also 1/2=3/6

Since, 4/6> 3/6

hence A jar **could be used.**

<u>**B jar:**</u>

It has 1/4 pint of paint.

As 1/2=2/4

Also 1/4<2/4.

Hence Jar B **can't be used.**

**<u>C jar:</u>**

It has 4/6 pint of paint.

As 1/2=3/6

Now 4/6> 3/6

Hence jar C **could be used.**

<u>**D jar:**</u>

3/4 pint.

as 1/2=2/4

Hence, 3/4>2/4

Hence, jar D **could be used.**

<u>**E jar:**</u>

It has 3/8 pint of paint.

As 1/2=4/8

As 3/8<4/8

Hence jar E** can't be used.**

<u>**F jar:**</u>

It has 2/6 pint of paint.

As 1/2=3/6

Hence, 2/6<3/6

Hence, jar F **can't be used.**
