Raphaels Fraction scribe post

To divide a fraction you obviously need fractions.

If our fraction is 4/5 divided by 1/2, how could we turn that into a question (Wilson Way)?

How Many Groups of a half are in four fifths?

Once we write down the question we can finally do the math. The most important part about dividing fractions is the Reciprocal, the reciprocal makes your  Denominator 1.

Steps on how to successfully solve the math question

1. You re-write the math statement just like on the picture above
2. Use reciprocal to make denominator 1
3. Multiply
4. Solve

Here is an awesome Link to a dividing fraction song.
