E. What is the quotient, and what does it represent in the context of your problem? What equation can you write to model your problem?
16 parts,
Equation:
4 ÷ $$\frac{1}{4}$$,

Explanation:
Given what problem can be solved by finding the number of $$\frac{1}{4}$$-size parts in 4 wholes
The equation to model the problem is
4 ÷ $$\frac{1}{4}$$,
The quotient is 4 X 4 = 16, 16 represents 16 parts are there in 4 wholes which are of$$\frac{1}{4}$$-size part.

Turn and Talk How would the problem change if the equation were 4 ÷ $$\frac{1}{8}$$ = t?
t = 32,
Equation:
t = 4 ÷ $$\frac{1}{8}$$,

Explanation:
If the equation is changed to 4 ÷ $$\frac{1}{8}$$ = t,
then t = 4 X 8 = 32.

Check Understanding

Question 1.
Write and solve a division word problem for the visual fraction model.

Word problem:
” 3 pizzas are divided by $$\frac{1}{8}$$ each, how many parts are there?”,
24 parts of pizza,

Explanation:
Division word problem for the visual fraction model is
” 3 pizzas are divided by $$\frac{1}{8}$$ each, how many parts are there?”, solving 3 ÷ $$\frac{1}{8}$$ =
3 X 8 = 24 parst of pizza.

Question 2.
Write and solve a word problem that can be modeled by r = 8 ÷ $$\frac{1}{10}$$.
Word problem:
“8 friends shared $$\frac{1}{10}$$ box of candies among themselves, how many candies did they shared?”,
80 candies,

Explanation:
Word problem that can be modeled by
r = 8 ÷ $$\frac{1}{10}$$ is
Word problem:
“8 friends shared $$\frac{1}{10}$$ box of candies among themselves, how many candies did they shared?”,
Let r be number of candies shared among friends
so r = 8 ÷ $$\frac{1}{10}$$ = 8 X 10 = 80 candies.

Question 3.
Use Tools Write and solve a division word problem for the visual model.

Word problem:
“You got 5 boxes of pencils each box is divided into $$\frac{1}{6}$$ part, how many total pencils are there?”,
30 pencils,

Explanation:
Wrote and solved a division word problem for the visual model as Word problem:
“You got 5 boxes of pencils each box is divided into $$\frac{1}{6}$$ part, how many total pencils are there?”, 5 ÷$$\frac{1}{6}$$ = 5 X 6 = 30 pencils.

Question 4.
Reason Harry has two pounds of sculpting clay. He divides the clay into $$\frac{1}{16}$$-pound blocks. Can this situation be modeled by 16 ÷ $$\frac{1}{2}$$ = b and 2 ÷ $$\frac{1}{16}$$ = b? Explain.
No it can be not modeled by both 16 ÷ $$\frac{1}{2}$$ = b and
2 ÷ $$\frac{1}{16}$$ = b,
It can be only modeled by 2 ÷ $$\frac{1}{16}$$ = b,

Explanation:
Given Harry has two pounds of sculpting clay.
He divides the clay into $$\frac{1}{16}$$-pound blocks. This situation cannot be modeled by
16 ÷ $$\frac{1}{2}$$ = b and 2 ÷ $$\frac{1}{16}$$ = b as the question is 2 pounds is divided by $$\frac{1}{16}$$-pound blocks not 16 pounds of sculpting clay dividived by $$\frac{1}{16}$$ – pound blocks. So both cannot
be modeled only  2 ÷ $$\frac{1}{16}$$ = b, can be modeled as per given situation.

Question 5.

Word problem:
“There are 8 boxes of strawberries each box contains $$\frac{1}{2}$$ of strawberries, how many total number of strawberries are there?”,
let h be number of strawberries so solving
h= 8 ÷ $$\frac{1}{2}$$ = 8 x 2 =16 strawberries.

Word problem:
“There are 4 boxes of apples each box contains each box contains $$\frac{1}{10}$$ of apples, total how many apples are there?”,

Describe what the quotient means in the context of your problem.
40 apples,

Explanation:
Given word problem as “There are 4 boxes of apples each box contains each box contains $$\frac{1}{10}$$ of apples,
total how many apples are there?”, Let s are number of apples, So number of apples are
s = 4 ÷ $$\frac{1}{10}$$ = 4 X 10 = 40,
here quotient means number of apples 40.

Question 9.
Use Tools Write a word problem that can be represented by 3 ÷ $$\frac{1}{6}$$ = t. Draw a visual model to help you solve the problem.
Word problem:
“3 meters of ribbon has been cut into $$\frac{1}{6}$$ part each,
How many pieces of ribbons are made”,

18 pieces of ribbon,

Explanation:
Wrote a word problem that can be represented by

“3 meters of ribbon has been cut into $$\frac{1}{6}$$ part each,
How many pieces of ribbons are made”,
Drawn a visual model to help and solve the problem as shown above
solving let t  be  number of pieces of ribbon so t = 3 ÷ $$\frac{1}{6}$$ = 3 x 6 = 18 pieces of ribbon.
