Division of Fractions
5.NF.7
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by
whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
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)÷4, and use a visual
fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication
and division to explain that (1/3)÷4=1/12 because (1/12)×4=1/3.
b. Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such
quotients. For example, create a story context for 4÷(1/5), and use a visual
fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication
and division to explain that 4÷(1/5)=20 because 20×(1/5)=4. (see illustrations)
c. Solve real world problems involving division of unit fractions by non-zero
whole numbers and division of whole numbers by unit fractions, e.g., by using
visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, how
much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate
equally? How many 1/3-cup servings are in 2 cups of raisins?

many groups?
Partitive Model:
Given 2 groups and 8 items, how many
in each group?
