Lets get 3 cookies and divide them betweenthe 2 of us!
Dividing fractions isas easy as piejust flip the second and multiply
How do you divide fractions?
To divide the 3 cookiesequally between the 2 of us you put 3 over 1 and find the reciprocal of 1/2 which is 2/1and then multiply 3/1by 2/1 to get 6/1 which is equal to 6 half pieces
To divide the cookiesinto halves you would take 2 and put it over one then find the reciprocal of 1/2 which is 2/1 so you would do 2/1 divided by 2/1 and you multiply straight across to get 4/1 which equals 4 halves
Thank you so much! We each get 3 halves of the cookies, which equals 1 and a half cookies each!!!
