Solve real-world problems involving division of unit fractions by non-zero whole numbers and division of whole numbers by unit fractions, for example, by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, how much chocolate will each person get if three people share 1/2 lb. of chocolate equally? How many 1/3-cup servings are in two cups of raisins?
