When dividing a unit fraction by a whole number, it can help

to think of dividing the unit fraction into equal parts.

One way to divide $\frac{1}{5}$ by 6 is to think of it as $\frac{1}{5}$ divided into 6 equal parts.

First, represent

$\frac{1}{5}$ with a model.

Then, divide the part of the model that represents

$\frac{1}{5}$ into 6 equal parts.

One of these parts represents

$\frac{1}{30}$ of the original whole.

So, $\frac{1}{5}\xf76=\frac{1}{30}$.
