7-44.

Draw rectangles to represent each integer, then divide them into the fractional parts indicated in the problem. Part (a) is done as an example.

How many one-thirds are in

? That is, what is ? As you can see in the figure above, each rectangle represents 1, and each 1 is divided into three parts.

If you count the thirds represented, you will find the answer to part (a).How many one-fourths are in

? That is, what is ? Try drawing a diagram as modeled in part (a).

It may help to know that there are 4 one-fourths in 1.

Can you find how many are in 5?There are 20 fourths in 5.

How many one-sixths are in

? That is, what is ? Can you count the one-sixths in the three rectangles?

How many one-fifths are in

? That is, what is ? The quotient is 30.
