Four friends go hiking. They bring snacks, a compass, and 3$$\frac{1}{3}$$ quarts of water. If they share the water equally, how many quarts will each person get?

Each person will get $$\frac{5}{6}$$ quarts,

Explanation:
Given Four friends go hiking. They bring snacks,
a compass, and 3$$\frac{1}{3}$$ quarts of water.
If they share the water equally, Number of quarts will
each person get is 3$$\frac{1}{3}$$ ÷ 4 =
$$\frac{3 X 3 + 1}{3}$$ X $$\frac{1}{4}$$ =
$$\frac{10}{3}$$ X $$\frac{1}{4}$$ =
$$\frac{10 x 1}{3 X 4}$$ = $$\frac{10}{12}$$
as both goes in 2 we will get $$\frac{5}{6}$$.

Turn and Talk How could you use a model to solve this problem? Explain.

Explanation:
Given 3$$\frac{1}{3}$$ ÷ 4 we use area model
as shown above first we divide 3 fulls and $$\frac{1}{3}$$
by dividing by 3  vertical lines then we divide by 4 using
horizontal lines we get filled part $$\frac{10}{12}$$ with
green color as shown above.

Given three friends go on a hike that is 4$$\frac{1}{2}$$ miles long.
If they take breaks as shown at the right as $$\frac{3}{4}$$ then
Number of breaks will they take are
4$$\frac{1}{2}$$ ÷ $$\frac{3}{4}$$=
$$\frac{4 x 2 + 1}{2}$$ X $$\frac{4}{3}$$ =
$$\frac{9}{2}$$ X $$\frac{4}{3}$$ =
$$\frac{9 X 4}{2 X 3}$$ = 3 X 2 = 6.

What can I apply from my previous work with LCMs and GCFs to better understand division with mixed numbers?
______________________
GCF’s,

Explanation:
A mixed number is a number expressed as the sum of a
whole number and a frraction, When we divide a number
by a mixed number, first rewrite the mixed number as an
improper fractions . Then multiply the number by the
reciprocal of the improper fraction then simplify using GCF’s.
