Subtract 96.

Divide by 2.

In this lesson we will answer the question:

How can fractions be used to show division?

Vocabulary

fraction – a symbol, such as ¾, used to describe one or more parts of a whole that is divided into equal parts. A fraction can name a part of a whole, a part of a set, a location on a number line, or a division of whole numbers.

Vocabulary

numerator - the number above the fraction bar in a fraction

denominator - the number below the fraction bar in a fraction

numerator

1

2

denominator

Vocabulary Review

dividend- the number to be divided.

24 ÷ 4 = 6

divisor- the number that a dividend is divided by.

24 ÷ 4 = 6

Vocabulary Review

quotient - the number that is the result of dividing.

24 ÷ 4 = 6

6 is the QUOTIENT!

Connecting to Previous Learning

Fractions represent equal parts of a whole.

Connecting to Previous Learning

This whole is broken into four equal parts. The denominator shows that the whole is in four equal parts.

Connecting to Previous Learning

The numerator shows how many of the equal parts one has.

### Fractions also represent division.10 ÷ 2 = 10 2

Al, Lisa, Nico, and Laura are making a picture. They will share 3 rectangular strips of colored paper. What fraction represents the part of a whole strip of paper each will get?

Find 3 ÷ 4

One way to divide 3 wholes into 4 equal parts is to first divide each whole into 4 equal parts. Each part is ¼ of a whole.

Find 3 ÷ 4

Rearrange the quarter pieces so that each person gets 3 of the ¼ pieces. Each gets ¾.

The teacher gives 7 packs of paper to a group of 4 students. If they share the paper equally, how much paper does each student get?

Each student receives 1 whole pack of paper and 1⁄4 of the each of the 3 packs of paper. So each student gets 1 3⁄4 packs of paper.

### Give each answer as a fraction:1. 1 ÷ 22. 9 ÷ 103. 3 ÷ 44. 7 ÷ 115. 5 ÷ 8

Independent Practice

If 9 people want to share a 50-pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get?

Lesson Review

Fractions are also a representation of division. The numerator is the dividend and the denominator is the divisor.

### Give each answer as a fraction:1. 5 ÷ 92. 3 ÷ 63. 1 ÷ 54. 6 ÷ 125. 3 ÷ 23
