#### Storyboard Text

• I've been getting weird mail and notes popping up in random places in my house. Some contain creepy messages and two contain math problems I can't figure out. I wrote them down in my notebook. The notes are always gone when I wake up! What do I do? This guy even took my favorite toy! A robot I made myself!
• I'll help you solve the problems! Maybe we can find the mystery man!
• 8/45 24/8
• The first problem is 4/5 times 9/12. The next is 3/4 divided by 2/8.
• Luck for us I can solve those problems! I'll show you how and maybe we can find the mystery man!
• 4/5 times 2/9 is 8/45. To multiply fractions you just multiply the numerator by the numerator and the denominator by the denominator. 4* 2=8 and 9*5=45. That makes 8/45. 3/4 divided by 2/8 is 24/8, or 3. To divide fractions, you just flip the second fraction upside down and multiply. 3/4 times 8/2 is 24/8.
• Thank you! Now I can multiply and divide fractions! Thanks you so much!
• You're welcome! Do you have any idea what 8/45 and 24/8 means!
