Jecelyn's Growing post

We have to find 2 ways to multiply a fraction usins a diagram or a chart.

1) 4 x 1/2


Now I have to show how to divide from a whole number
It is 1/4 divided by 2 = 1/8

Now the word problem
A pitcher of orange juice is 2/3 full. If four students equally share the juice, what fraction of the full pitcher does each student get?

in order to get the answer you should do the following

1. read the question
2. find key words to help you get the answer

3. what fraction of the pitcher does each student get
4. you also need a simple sentence answer

each student will get 2/12 or 1/6 of the pitcher of juice

The video will come when we get back to school. Happy Easter everyone :D
