**Reflect**

Question 1.

Communicate Mathematical Ideas 3 ÷ 4 can be written \(\frac{3}{4}\) How are the dividend and divisor of a division expression related to the parts of a fraction?

Answer:

Dividend and divisor are connected to the fraction as numerator and denominator respectively!

dividend – numerator;

divisor – denominator

Question 2.

**Analyze Relationships** How could you represent the division as a fraction if 5 people shared 2 blocks? if 6 people shared 5 blocks?

Answer:

If 5 people shared 2 blocks, we can represent this as:

\(\frac{5}{2}\)

If 6 people shared 5 blocks, we can represent this as:

\(\frac{6}{5}\)

Write each rational number as \(\frac{a}{b}\).

Question 1.

Sarah and four friends are decorating picture frames with ribbon. They have 4 rolls of ribbon to share evenly. (Explore Activity)

a. How does this situation represent division?

Answer:

This situation can be represented by division as each person gets same amount of ribbon, therefore they have to split it into equal parts!

b. How much ribbon does each person receive?

Answer:

If Sarah has 4 friends, that means that 4 rolls of ribbon will be shared equally only if each gets:

\(\frac{4}{5}\)

Write each rational number in the form where a and b are integers.

Answer:

Number – 15 belongs to set of Integers

Question 6.

5\(\frac{10}{11}\) ___________

Answer:

Please note that i wrote mixed number 5\(\frac{10}{11}\) as 65/11 since i cannot use alignment in picture editing!

Number 5\(\frac{10}{11}\) beLongs to set of Rational numbers.

**Essential Question Check-In**

Question 7.

How is a rational number that is not an integer different from a rational number that is an integer?

Answer:

Number that is Rational and not Integer can not be written as whole number or its opposite.

**List two numbers that fit each description. Then write the numbers in the appropriate location on the Venn diagram.**

Question 8.

Integers that are not whole numbers

Answer:

Integers that are not Whole numbers are opposites of Whole numbers: – 3, – 5

Question 9.

Rational numbers that are not integers

Answer:

Rational numbers that are not Integers are numbers that are not Whole numbers or their opposites: \(\frac{5}{3}, \frac{7}{8}\)

Please note that i wrote \(\frac{5}{3}\) instead of \(\frac{5}{3}\) and \(\frac{7}{8}\) instead of \(\frac{7}{8}\)

Question 10.

**Multistep** A nature club is having its weekly hike. The table shows how many pieces of fruit and bottles of water each member of the club brought to share.

a. If the hikers want to share the fruit evenly, how many pieces should each person receive?

Answer:

If hikers wanted to share 14 pieces of fruit evenly, each of them would get: \(\frac{14}{4}\)

b. Which hikers received more fruit than they brought on the hike?

Answer:

To calculate, which of hikers got more fruit than brought, we have to change the format of our number to mixed number We know how to do it:

\(\frac{14}{4}\) = \(\frac{4}{4}+\frac{4}{4}+\frac{4}{4}+\frac{2}{4}\)

= 1 + 1 + 1 + \(\frac{2}{4}\)

= 3 + \(\frac{2}{4}\)

= 3\(\frac{2}{4}\)

Now we can conclude that Hendrick and Baxer will get more pieces than they brought1

c. The hikers want to share their water evenly so that each member has the same amount. How much water does each hiker receive?

Answer:

As there are 17 bottles of water altogether, if they split it in 4 parts that means each hiker is going to get: \(\frac{17}{4}\) bottles.

As this is not Whole number, some hiker will have to bring that one extra bottle so they could share it between

themselves!

Question 11.

Sherman has 3 cats and 2 dogs. He wants to buy a toy for each of his pets. Sherman has $22 to spend on pet toys. How much can he spend on each pet? Write your answer as a fraction and as an amount in dollars and cents.

Answer:

As Sherman has 5 pets in total. That means he has to share $22 into 5 equal parts.

He will spend on each: $\(\frac{22}{5}\)

He will spend $4 and 40 cents for each pet!

Question 12.

A group of 5 friends is sharing 2 pounds of trail mix. Write a division problem and a fraction to represent this situation.

Answer:

Since 5 of them share 2 pounds of milk, that means each will get:

\(\frac{5}{2}\) pounds.

Question 13.

Vocabulary A _____________ diagram can represent set relationships visually.

Answer:

A Venn diagram can visually represent set relationships.

Financial Literacy For 14-16, use the table. The table shows Jason’s utility bills for one month. Write a fraction to represent the division in each situation. Then classify each result by indicating the set or sets to which it belongs.

Question 14.

Jason and his 3 roommates share the cost of the electric bill evenly.

Answer:

So, electricity payments bill splits into 4 equal parts!

We can express it via fraction as: $\(\frac{108}{4}\)

This number belongs to set of whole numbers as its equivalent to number: 27

Question 15.

Jason plans to pay the water bill with 2 equal payments.

Answer:

Jason is paying water bill with 2 equal payments.

That means he is going to pay: $\(\frac{35}{2}\)

This number belongs to set of Rational numbers.

Question 16.

Jason owes $15 for last month’s gas bill also. The total amount of the two gas bills is split evenly among the 4 roommates.

Answer:

As he owes $15 from last month, they will have to pay: $15 + $14 = $29

They split it into 4 parts and each pays: $\(\frac{29}{4}\)

This number belongs to set of Rational numbers.

Question 17.

Lynn has a watering can that holds 16 cups of water, and she fills it half full. Then she waters her 15 plants so that each plant gets the same amount of water. How many cups of water will each plant get?

Answer:

Glass can holds 16 cups of water, and she filled it half, so she filled it with 8 cups of water.

Now, we know that if she has 15 plants, and wants to split that water equally,

she will spend: \(\frac{8}{15}\)

This number belongs to set of Rational numbers.

**H.O.T. Focus on Higher Order Thinking**

Question 18.

**Critique Reasoning** DaMarcus says the number \(\frac{24}{6}\) belongs only to the set of rational numbers. Explain his error.

Answer:

Number \(\frac{24}{6}\) can be written without fraction as 4.

Therefore, it belongs to set of Integers and Whole numbers also.

Question 19.

**Analyze Relationships** Explain how the Venn diagrams in this lesson show that all integers and all whole numbers are rational numbers.

Answer:

Venn diagram shows that both ellipses named Integers and Whole numbers are included in one big ellipse called Rational numbers.

Question 20.

**Critical Thinking** Is it possible for a number to be a rational number that is not an integer but is a whole number? Explain.

Answer:

Number can not be Whole number without being an Integer, because all Whole numbers are included in Integers set!

We can also take a look to a task 19 and use Venn diagram to conclude this!
