The portion Josephine was supposed to paint:

The portion Josephine actually painted:

1. Approximately what portion of the painting was Josephine supposed to paint?

• Lines have been drawn on the first mural to help you estimate.

1. Approximately what fraction of her assigned portion did Josephine actually complete?

• Another line has been drawn on the second mural to help you estimate.

1. Write a product to show what portion of the mural Josephine actually painted.

• A few more lines have been added to the diagram.

• $\text{How can you write }\frac{1}{2}\text{ of }\frac{1}{4} \text{ as a product?}$

$\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )\left ( \frac{1}{4} \right )=\frac{1}{8}$
