Draw a circle on your paper and lightly shade in three-fourths of the circle.  

  1. Divide the entire circle into eight equal parts. How many parts are shaded?

  • Additional markers indicating the circle can be divided into quarters. Each quarter contains two sections of the 8 equal sections.

  1. Using fractions, write and solve a related division problem.
