Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions. 9

- 3.Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (
*a/b = a Ă· b*). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions, mixed numbers,*or decimal fractions*, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.*For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing 3 by 4, noting that 3/4 multiplied by 4 equals 3, and that when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people each person has a share of size 3/4. If 9 people want to share a 50- pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?* - 4.Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction. 7
