8-120.

Jamie has 9 gallons of paint that she needs to pour into containers that hold $\frac { 3 } { 4 }$of a gallon. How many containers will she need?

There are 4 one-fourths in 1. Can you find how many one-fourths are in 9? Multiplication can help!

There are 36 one-fourths in 9. We know that the containers hold groups of three one-fourths so can you use division to count how many groups of three there are in 36?

Jamie will need 12 containers.
