In class today we learned to divide fraction's, how to model them, put them on a number line and how to rewrite them in 3 ways
3 ways to rewrite a fraction:
How Divide Fractions:
You can solve dividing fractions statements in 3 ways
The first way you can solve 6 divide 1/2 is to make a number line. The interval in this number is 1/2, so you make 12 bumps to get to 6, The answer is 12.
The second way you can solve it by is by
making 1/2 a whole, you can make it
a whole by multiplying it by a reciprocal
which gives you 1. Then take that fraction
and multiple with the other fraction.
The third way of solving it is to make a model,
make 6 squares then you split it in to half, then
you count the rectangles and the answer is 12
How to solve 1/2 divide by 2:
You share 1/2 between 2. You have
1/2 so you half the half then you share
it and you get 1/4.
