  1. Answer:
    D) 3/8 of the blanket
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Adding up the pink and green parts, then subtracting it from 1 would yield the white area. Finding a common denominator gives: 2/8 + 3/8 which is 5/8. So 5/8 of the blanket is not white meaning that 3/8 of the blanket is white.
