Question 1.

Joe has \(\frac{1}{2}\) of a watermelon. He wants to give it to 5 friends and give each friend an equal amount. How much of the watermelon will each friend get?

Answer:

Quantity of a watermelon each friend gets = 0.1.

Explanation:

Quantity of a watermelon Joe has = \(\frac{1}{2}\).

Number of friends she gave it equally = 5.

Quantity of a watermelon each friend gets = Quantity of a watermelon Joe has Ã· Number of friends she gave it equally

= \(\frac{1}{2}\) Ã· 5

= 0.5 Ã· 5

= 0.1 or \(\frac{1}{10}\)

Question 2.

Kay has \(\frac{1}{3}\) of a pizza. She wants to give it to 4 friends and give each friend an equal amount. How much of the pizza will each friend get?

Answer:

Quantity of a pizza each friend gets = 0.0825.

Explanation:

Quantity of a pizza Kay has = \(\frac{1}{3}\)

Number of friends she wants to give it = 4.

Quantity of a pizza each friend gets = Quantity of a pizza Kay has Ã· Number of friends she wants to give it

=Â \(\frac{1}{3}\) Ã· 4

= 0.33 Ã· 4

= 0.0825.
