## Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word
problems involving division of fractions by fractions, e.g., by using
visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. *For
example, create a story context for (2/3) ÷ (3/4) and use a visual fraction
model to show the quotient; use the relationship between multiplication
and division to explain that (2/3) ÷ (3/4) = 8/9 because 3/4 of 8/9 is 2/3.
(In general, (a/b) ÷ (c/d) = ad/bc.) How much chocolate will each person
get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 3/4-cup
servings are in 2/3 of a cup of yogurt? How wide is a rectangular strip of
land with length 3/4 mi and area 1/2 square mi?* |
