22. If } of a square is divided into 2 equal parts, what fraction of the square is each part? Then +2=

1 = 1 23. If į of a square is divided into 2 equal parts, what fraction of the square is each part? Then I +2=

24. If } of a square is divided into 8 equal parts, what fraction of the square is each part? Then 1 +8= },

25. Since 1 +2=1, 1+2= }, and } +8=16, how may we divide a fraction by a whole number without dividing the numerator by the whole number?

A fraction may be divided by a whole number by multiplying the denominator by the whole number.

26. In q = 3 is it easier to divide the numerator or to multiply the denominator ? in g = 5?

27. State the easier method of dividing: 4 by 3; f by 2; 3 by 2; } by 7; g by 4; s by 5.

28. Under what conditions is it easier to divide the numerator? when is it easier to multiply the denominator ?

Observing the two methods, divide the following fractions, using the method best adapted to the problem:

Dividing any number by a fraction by inverting the terms of the divisor.

1. 1+1= 2. 1+1

1+3= Observe that in each of the examples given above the quotient equals 1 x the denominator, or 1x, 1x4, 1x1, 1x4, 1 x 1, 1x1

3. Divide 12 successively by 2, 3, 4, 6. The quotients, 6, 4, 3, 2 respectively, become smaller as the divisors become larger. Then if 1=1= 1 will the quotient of 1+1 be larger or smaller than 4 ? Since is 3 times as large as 1, the quotient of 1+ will be } of the quotient of 1: 1; } of 4 = $.

4. 1:= , and 1= = 1 of 1 = 1. 1+1 = f, and 1= 5 = } of ( = g. Find the quotients of 1-4; 1= }; 1+%; 1+$. Notice that in every case the quotient equals the divisor with its terms inverted.

The number of times a fraction is contained in 1 equals the denominator of the fraction divided by the numerator, or the fraction inverted.

Find quotients by inverting the divisor and multiplying: Thus: 3+ = 3x = ” = 31. 5. 1:1 12. 2
