4. c. 1/5 ÷ 2 =

Share 1/5 between 2 groups.

First you change the whole number into a fraction by putting it over 1. Then you multiply it by the reciprocal which in this case is 2/1 x 1/2 = 2/2 (a whole). What you do to the whole number, you also do it to the fraction, so  1/5 x 1/2 = 1/10 which is the product.

4.d. 5/6  ÷ 4 =

Share 5/6 between 4 groups.

First you change the whole number into a fraction by putting it over 1.Then you multiply it by the reciprocal which in this case is 4/1 x 1/4 = 4/4 (a whole). What you do to the while number you also do to the fraction, so 5/6 x 1/4 = 5/24 which is the product.

Share 1/5 between 3 groups. (The 3 provinces)

First you change the whole number into a fraction by putting it over 1. Then you multiply it by the reciprocal which in this case is 3/1 x 1/3 = 3/3 (a whole). What you do to the whole number you also do to the fraction, so 1/5 x 1/3 = 1/15 which is the product.

Share 3/4 between 5 groups.

First you change the whole number into a fraction by putting it over 1. Then you multiply it by the reciprocal which in this case is 5/1 x 1/5 = 5/5 (a whole). What you do to the whole number you also do to the fraction, so 3/4 x 1/5 = 3/20 which is the product.
