Creating fraction word problems in maths

This morning my maths group created some amazing fraction word problems on whiteboards.

We took some pictures to remember their questions - can you work out the answers to any of these problems? (Some of these are a one step problem, some are two step)

George asked: "Josh has 25kg of snow in his garden. He uses 1/5 to make a snowman. How much snow has he used?"

Katie asked: "Mrs Parr has 16 cakes. She gives 1/2 to Katie. How many does she have left?". How many rings does she get?"

Molly asked: "Leon has 50 rings and he gives 1/5 to Molly. How How many does she get?"

Owen asked: "Zak had 40 cookies. He had eaten 1/4 of them. How many did he eat?"

EvieT asked: "Freya has 28 lollies. She sells 1/4. How many does she have left?""

Leon asked: "Rosy has 25 puppies. She feeds 1/5 of them. How many were fed?"

Zachary asked: "Zachary has 15 video games. he throws out 1/3 of them. How many does he have left?"

Ellie asked: "Sammi has 20 hats. He sells 1/5 of them. How many does he sell?"

Luke asked: "Brendon has 15 sweets. he gives 1/3 to Cole. How many does he have left?"

...and finally, Fred asked a tricky question: "Tommie has 500 marbles. Tommi sells 1/5. How many marbles does he have left?"
