For example, create a story context for (2/3) &div; (3/4) and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient; use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (2/3) &div; (3/4) = 8/9 because 3/4 times 8/9 is 2/3 ((a/b) &div; (c/d) = ad/bc.) Further example: How much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How wide is a rectangular strip of land with length 3/4 mi and area 1/2 square mi?
