In the FreeWheelin' Skate Shop, exactly 1/4 of the skateboards are red and exactly 2/3 of the scooters are red. If there are equal numbers of red skateboards and red scooters in the shop, what fraction of the total skateboards and scooters together are red? Express your answer as a simplified fraction.

1/4 Of 1/2 the total are red boards

2/3 of 1/2 the total are red scooters

x = number of scooter + number of boards

1/4 * 1/2 x + 2/3 * 1/2 x =

1/8x + 2/6x

3/24 x + 8/24 x = 11/24 of the total scooters and boards are red
