CCRS – 5.NF.7a

Apply/extend understanding of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions.

Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions. (5.NF.7)

a. Interpret division of a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for (1/3) Γ· 4 , and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) Γ· 4 = 1/2 because (1/12) x 4 = 1/3. (5.NF.7a)
