This lesson begins with a word problem in which students must figure how much money Erica and Tim each earn when they split $480 by a ratio of 5:3. After the problem, students watch a video in which the problem is solved using division and multiplication and again using fractions. Students then click the Try It button to complete a problem on their own. There are also embedded tools, a calculator and scratchpad, for students to use as they solve.
