**Unlock the Problem**

Maya collects stamps. She has 20 stamps in her collection. Four-fifths of her stamps have been canceled. How many of the stamps in Maya’s collection have been canceled?

Find \(\frac{4}{5}\) of 20.

- Put 20 counters on your Math Board.

Since you want to find \(\frac{4}{5}\) of the stamps, you should arrange the 20 counters in ________ equal groups. - Draw the counters in equal groups below. How many counters are in each group? _________

Each group represents __________ of the stamps. Circle \(\frac{4}{5}\) of the counters.

How many groups did you circle? ___________

How many counters did you circle? ___________

\(\frac{4}{5}\) of 20 = __________ , or \(\frac{4}{5}\) × 20 = ______

So, _________ of the stamps have been canceled.

Answer:

Put 20 counters on above Math Board.

Since I want to find 4/5 of the stamps, I should arrange the 20 counters in 5 equal groups.

Draw the counters in equal groups above. There are **4** counters are in each group.

Each group represents **1/5** of the stamps. Draw a circle 4/5 of the counters.

I circled **4** groups.

I circled **16 **counters.

4/5 of 20 =**16**, or 4/5 × 20 = **16**.

So, **16** of the stamps have been canceled.

**Example**

Max’s stamp collection has stamps from different countries. He has 12 stamps from Canada. Of those twelve, \(\frac{2}{3}\) of them have pictures of Queen Elizabeth II. How many stamps have the queen on them?

Draw an array to represent the 12 stamps by drawing an ✗ for each stamp. Since you want to find \(\frac{2}{3}\) of the stamps, your array should show __________ rows of equal size.

Circle _________ of the 3 rows to show \(\frac{2}{3}\) of 12. Then count the number of ✗s in the circle.

There are _________ ✗s circled.

Complete the number sentences.

\(\frac{2}{3}\) of 12 = ______, or \(\frac{2}{3}\) × 12 = _________

So, there are __________ stamps with a picture of Queen Elizabeth II.

Answer:

Draw an array to represent the 12 stamps by drawing an ✗ for each stamp. Since we want to find 2/3 of the stamps, our array should show **3** rows of equal size.

Circle **2** of the 3 rows to show 2/3 of 12. Then count the number of ✗s in the circle.

There are **8** ✗s circled.

The number sentences.

2/3 of 12 = **8**, or 2/3× 12 = **8**

So, there are **8** stamps with a picture of Queen Elizabeth II.

On your Math Board, use counters to find \(\frac{4}{6}\) of 12. Explain why the answer is the same as when you found \(\frac{2}{3}\) of 12.

Answer:

They are the same because **(4/6) = (2/3)**.

Explanation:

On the above Math Board 12 counters in 6 rows. In each row there are 2 counters. Draw a circle for 8 counters. The number sentences for (4/6) of 12 is 8 and (2/3) of 12 is 8. So both are because (4/6) is equal to (2/3).

**Problem Solving**

Out of their collections, \(\frac{3}{10}\) of Zack’s stamps, \(\frac{5}{6}\) of Teri’s stamps, and \(\frac{3}{8}\) of Paco’s stamps were from foreign countries. How many stamps were in their display? Explain how you solved the problem.

Answer:

9 + 15 + 9 = 33

In the display there are 33 stamps.

Explanation:

Zack, Teri, and Paco combined the foreign stamps from their collections for a stamp show. Out of their collections, 3/10 of Zack’s stamps, 5/6 of Teri’s stamps, and 3/8 of Paco’s stamps were from foreign countries. Multiply 3/10 with 30 the product is 9. Zack’s stamps are 9. Multiply 5/6 with 18 the product is 15. Teri’s stamps are 15. Multiply 3/8 with 24 the product is 9. Paco’s stamps are 9. I found the fractional part of each persons collection. I added the amounts together. So, 9 + 15 + 9 = 33.

Answer:

6 stamps have pictures of birds on them.

Explanation:

Paula has 24 stamps in her collection. Among her stamps, 1/3 have pictures of animals. Multiply 1/3 with 24 the product is 8. 8 stamps have pictures of animals. Out of her stamps with pictures of animals,3/4 of those stamps have pictures of birds. Multiply 3/4 with 8 the product is 6. 6 stamps have pictures of birds on them.
