Lesson 4
How Many Groups? (Part 1)
Problem 1
Consider the problem: A shopper buys cat food in bags of 3 lbs. Her cat eats \(\frac34\) lb each week. How many weeks does one bag last?

Draw a diagram to represent the situation and label your diagram so it can be followed by others. Answer the question.

Write a multiplication or division equation to represent the situation.

Multiply your answer in the first question (the number of weeks) by \(\frac34\). Did you get 3 as a result? If not, revise your previous work.

Problem 3
Which question can be represented by the equation \({?}\boldcdot \frac18=3\)?
How many 3s are in \(\frac18\)?
What is 3 groups of \(\frac18\)?
How many \(\frac 18\)s are in 3?
What is \(\frac 18\) of 3?

Problem 4
Write two division equations for each multiplication equation.
 \(15\boldcdot \frac25 = 6\)
 \(6 \boldcdot \frac43 = 8\)
 \(16\boldcdot \frac78 = 14\)
