UT.5.NF. NUMBER AND OPERATIONS—FRACTIONS (5.NF)

Use equivalent fractions as a strategy to add and subtract fractions (Standards 5.NF.1–2). Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions (Standards 5.NF.3–7).

5.NF.3. Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (a/b = a ÷ b). Solve real-world problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, through the use of visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing three by four, noting that 3/4 multiplied by four equals three, and that when three wholes are shared equally among four people each person has a share of size 3/4. If nine 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?
