TN.5.NF. Number and Operations - Fractions (NF)
5.NF.B. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions.
5.NF.B.3. Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (ݑ/ΰݑ = a σ b). For example, 3/4 = 3 ׃ 4 so when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people, each person has a share of size 3/4. Solve contextual problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. For example, if 8 people want to share 49 sheets of construction paper equally, how many sheets will each person receive? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?
