CCRS – 5.NF.7b

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)

b. Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for 4 Γ· (1/5) , and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 Γ· (1/5) = 20 because 20 x (1/5) = 4. (5.NF.7b)
