I think this will help you understand and learn more how to divide fractions by whole numbers.

I think this LINK will also help you.

Test Corrections:


  1. Good job Kerrnel! You did a good job explaining how you got the answers, it made it easier for me on how to use diagrams when dividing fractions.

  2. I think you did a really good job. You did a really good job explaining on how to do the question except 5.b, the diagram didn't really help me and all you did was write it out. It would've helped if you explained your diagram. The video was also a good choice.
