6-58.

How much does each piece represent?

Since each square is divided into 5 equal pieces, each piece is equal to one-fifth.
There are 12 shaded pieces, so this diagram represents

$\frac{12}{5}.$

Use the diagram for part (a) to help you design this diagram.
How many pieces are in a whole? How many do you shade?

To represent this mixed number as a single fraction greater than one, 11 equal pieces will need to be shaded.
How much of a whole will each piece represent?

How many whole numbers does this represent?
How many pieces are left over?
Remember to draw a diagram.
