Katherine's Fraction Scribepost

HOMEWORK:

1). 3/4 ÷ 1/3 =

Question: How many groups of 1/3 are in 3/4?

Before you solve the problem, you must estimate first.

Estimate: >1, meaning greater than 1.

Then you do the math:

After you have found the reciprocal, and you have done the math, you can now make a diagram.

2). 4/5 ÷ 3/10 =

Question: How many groups of 3/10 are in 4/5?

Before you solve the problem, you must estimate first.

Estimate: >1meaning greater than 1.

Then you do the math:

After you have found the reciprocal, and you have done the math, you can now make a diagram.

3). 1 1/4 ÷ 3/8 =

To make this question easier, turn the mixed fraction into an improper fraction.

1 1/4 = 5/4

Question: How many groups of 3/8 are in 5/4?

Before you solve the problem, you must estimate first.

Estimate: >1meaning greater than 1.

Then you do the math:

After you have found the reciprocal, and you have done the math, you can now make a diagram.

To anyone still having problems with reciprocals, hope this video helps!
