Bob is working on his reading log and gets a reward for each night he reads for 20 minutes. If he gets 1/3 of a bag of jelly beans for each night he reads, how many days will 12 bags of jelly beans last?

Mr. Marinich, Mr. Addwell, Mr. Sum, Mr. Plus, and Mr. Minus were sharing a 2 liter bottle of soda. Mr. Marinich drinks one-half of the bottle, Mr. Addwell drinks 1/6 of the bottle, Mr. Sum drinks one-fourth of the bottle, and Mr. Plus drinks 1/12 of the bottle. Is there any soda left for Mr. Minus? How would you know?
