**Math in My World**

Example 1

A sports Web site has score updates every \(\frac{1}{4}\) hour. How many times does the Web site have score updates in a 3-hour period?

Find 3 ÷ \(\frac{1}{4}\) using models.

1. The model represents 3. How many \(\frac{1}{4}\)s are in 3?

Answer:

The above-given problem

1/4 are in 3.

This can be represented in the above diagram.

2. Divide each of the three rectangles into fourths.

Answer:

3. Count the number of fourths.

There are ___-fourths in the model.

3 ÷ \(\frac{1}{4}\) = ____

So, the Web site has ____ score updates in 3 hours.

Check You can check division problems using multiplication inverse operations.

12 × \(\frac{1}{4}\) = or ____

Answer:

Now count the rectangles

There are 12-fourths in the model.

3 ÷ 1/4

Now simplify the above equation

Therefore, the website has 12 score updates in 3 hours.

If we check division problems using multiplication inverse operations

then, 12 x 1/4 = 3 (or) 3/1.

Example 2

Lisa takes four apple pies to her family reunion. Each pie is cut into sixths. How many pieces of pie can Lisa serve? Find the unknown in 4 ÷ \(\frac{1}{6}\) = g.

1. The model represents 4.

Answer:

The total number of apple pies = 4

First, divide the pies into six slices

The diagram can be represented as

2. Divide each of the four smaller rectangles into sixths.

So, 4 ÷ \(\frac{1}{6}\) = ____

g = ____ ← unknown

Lisa can serve _____ pieces of pie.

Check Use multiplication to check your answer. ____ × \(\frac{1}{6}\) = 4

Answer:

The division of rectangles is shown above.

4 ÷ 1/6

Now calculate the division.

g = 24

Therefore, Lisa can serve 24 pieces of pie.

Now check by using the multiplication

24 x 1/6 = 4

Hence proved.

Question 8.

Denise has 4 hours to paint crafts. She would like to spend no more than \(\frac{1}{4}\) of each hour on each craft How many crafts can she paint during that time?

Answer:

The total number of hours Denise has = 4

The number of hours she would like to spend = 1/4

The number of crafts she can paint in that particular time = X

X = 4 ÷ 1/4

X = 16 crafts

Therefore, she could paint 16 crafts.

Question 9.

Laura has a 6-foot-long piece of ribbon that she wants to cut to make bows. Each piece needs to be \(\frac{1}{3}\)-foot long to make one bow. How many bows will she be able to make?

Answer:

The length she wants to cut the pieces = 6

The length she needs for each piece for one bow = 1/3

The number of bows she can make = X

X = 6 ÷ 1/3

x = 18

Therefore, she can make 18 bows.

Question 10.

Ray has 8 pieces of wood to finish building a doghouse. How many pieces of wood will he have if he divides each piece in half?

Answer:

The number of wooden pieces Ray is having = 8

If wooden pieces are cut into half means 1/2 then the number of pieces he would have. Let it be X.

X = 8 ÷ 1/2

X = 8 x 2

X = 16

Therefore, she would have 16 pieces

Question 12.

**? Building on the Essential Question** Explain the relationship between division and multiplication.

Answer:

Multiplication and division are closely related. They are basic arithmetic operations and we know that division is an inverse operation of multiplication. Multiplication means adding equal parts to form a group whereas division is the split of those equal parts from a group. So, Multiplication and Division are related to each other.

For example,

the division operation is 9 ÷ 1/8 = 72

the multiplication operation is 72 x 1/8 = 9

Question 3.

Chef Erin has 4 pizzas that need to be cut into slices. Each slice represents \(\frac{1}{6}\) of a pizza. How many slices of pizza can she serve?

Answer:

The number of pizzas he has = 4

Each slice represents = 1/6

The number of slices of pizza he can serve = s

s = 4 ÷ 1/6

s = 4/1 x 6/1

s = 4 x 6

s = 24

Therefore, he can serve 24 slices of pizza.

Question 6.

Karen uses five pounds of hamburger to grill hamburgers. Each pound is divided into thirds to make each hamburger. How many hamburgers can Karen serve? Find the unknown in 5 ÷ \(\frac{1}{3}\) = h.

A. h = 10 hamburgers

B. h = 12 hamburgers

C. h = 15 hamburgers

D. h = 18 hamburgers

Answer: Option C is correct.

The above-given:
