Textbook Page 228, Chapter 6.5  #'s 11, 12, and 13.

When you're dividing fractions, first thing you do is you make the whole number a fraction. The second thing you do is you write down what you have and the group you're dividing the first fraction into and put a fraction line in between them. The third thing you do is you find the reciprocal of the denominator which in this case is 4/1 and multiply 1/4 by 4/1. You do to the top what you do to the bottom. I multiplied 15/1 by 2/5 and the answer I got is 8 wholes. You then simplify the answer if you need to. There are 8 performers in a 2 hour show.

The second thing you do is you write down what you have and the group you're dividing the first fraction into and put a fraction line in between them. The third thing you do is you find the reciprocal of the denominator which in this case is 2/5 and multiply 5/2 by 2/5. You do to the top what you do on the bottom. Multiply 15/1 by 2/5.  The answer I got is 30/5. You then simplify the answer if you need to. There are 6 cakes in 15 scoops of flour.

1. Good job, you put effort into this and it shows, you had great pictures great explaining and the video really helped, your post had lost of words and a lot of color, but you should add a diagram to explain more, overall great job.
