**Mathematical Processes**

Explain how you would model 45.8 ÷ 4 using base-ten blocks.

Answer:

Explanation:

45.8 ÷ 4 is done in base ten blocks method

above figure shows how it was done

step 1:

4 is shared among 4 groups no ones left over

step 2:

5 tenths shared among 4 groups 1 tenths left over

1 tenths cannot be regrouped

so, converted to hundredths

18 hundredths shared among the 4 groups

4 shared among groups and 2 left over

(A) 4.78 feet

(B) 0.64 foot

(C) 0.50 foot

(D) 4.14 feet

Answer: B

Explanation:

The school in town is building a track around its football stadium.

The principal must decide whether to build a track with 6 lanes or 7 lanes.

A 6-lane track will be 28.68 feet wide, 28.68 ÷ 6 = 4.78

and a 7-lane track will be 28.98 feet wide. 28.98 ÷ 7 = 4.14

If all lanes are of equal width in each track,

4.78 – 4.14 = 0.64

the lanes in a 6-lane track than in a 7-lane track is 0.64
