Question 7.
Yolanda has $$\frac{1}{4}$$ of a box of markers. She wantsÂ  to divide the markers among 4 people. She wants each person to get an equal share of the markers. How much of the box of markers should each person get?
Number of box of markers each person gets = 0.625.

Explanation:
Number of boxes of markers Yolanda has = $$\frac{1}{4}$$
Number of people she wants to divide them =Â  4.
Number of box of markers each person gets = Number of boxes of markers Yolanda has Ã· Number of people she wants to divide them
= $$\frac{1}{4}$$ Ã· 4
= 0.25 Ã· 4
= 0.625.

Question 8.
Brian has $$\frac{1}{5}$$ of a bag of grapes. He wants to divide the grapes among 7 people. He wants each person to get an equal share of the grapes. How much of the bag of grapes should each person get?
Number of bags of grapes each person gets = 0.029.

Explanation:
Number of bags of grapes Brian has = $$\frac{1}{5}$$
Number of people she wants to divide them = 7.
Number of bags of grapes each person gets = Number of bags of grapes Brian has Ã· Number of people she wants to divide them
= $$\frac{1}{5}$$ Ã· 7
= 0.2 Ã· 7
= 0.029.

Question 9.
Sherri, Andy, and Grace are painting $$\frac{1}{6}$$ of a fence. They want to paint an equal share of the fence. How much of the fence should each person paint?
Length of of the fence each person paints = 0.056.

Explanation:
Length of painting of a fence Sherri, Andy, and Grace are painting = $$\frac{1}{6}$$
Number of people = 3.
Length of of the fence each person paints = Length of painting of a fence Sherri, Andy, and Grace are paintingÂ  Ã· Number of people
= $$\frac{1}{6}$$ Ã· 3
= 0.17 Ã· 3
= 0.056.

Question 10.
Mona and Eli are washing $$\frac{1}{2}$$ of the dishes after dinner. They want to wash an equal share of the dishes. How much should each person wash?
Length of dishes for wash each person gets = 0.25.

Explanation:
Length of dishes are washing Mona and Eli after dinner = $$\frac{1}{2}$$
Number of people = 2.
Length of dishes for wash each person gets = Length of dishes are washing Mona and Eli after dinner Ã· Number of people
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$Â  Ã· 2
= 0.5 Ã· 2
= 0.25.

Question 11.
Jack and two friends are washing $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of a car. They each want to wash an equal portion of the car. How much of the car should each person wash?
Length of the car Jack and two friends are washing = $$\frac{1}{3}$$
= $$\frac{1}{3}$$Â  Ã· 3
