7-52.

If you had 5 pieces of licorice to share equally among 7 people, how much licorice would each person get? Show a diagram of how you would cut the licorice for each person.

For help with dividing things into portions, refer to part (b) of problem 5-58.

Christopher had the same problem and needed to divide 5 pieces of licorice for 7 people.
Can you complete the diagram or draw your own to show how you would cut the licorice.

Each person would get $\frac{5}{7}$ a piece of licorice. Did you remember to draw a diagram?
