Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (𝑎/𝑏 = 𝑎 ÷ 𝑏). For example, 3/4 = 3 ÷ 4 so when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people, each person has a share of size 3/4. Solve contextual problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.

Standards with the same topic and subject but for other grades

Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way (e.g., 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8), recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions by using a visual fraction model.
