When dividing fractions with a whole number and a fraction, remember to convert the whole into a fraction and always remember that when you convert it into a fraction, the denominator is always 1. Now, dividing fractions is the same thing as multiplying a fraction because you have to divide the numerator and the denominator with another fraction:

Here is a video of how to divide fractions:

Good Explanation! But I suggest you try adding in the pictorial representation for dividing fractions. And Learn how to make a link!

ReplyDeletegood job only problem is the link otherwise it good

ReplyDeleteI like the way you explained it to us and told us to convert the whole number when multiplying. You did a good job, but next time you should add a picture/drawing of it.

ReplyDeleteGood Explanation Reiner! Try to add maybe another picture (pictorial representation) and explain it a little more deeper(?) Also, good job on finding a video that's short but really helpful. You probably just need to change the link since it doesn't work, but overall you did great ☺

ReplyDeleteI like the way you explained it, simple but well done. I'd suggest you add a picture that shows the process of actually dividing the fractions and make sure the links work. Other than that, good job.

ReplyDeleteYou explained it well.The video and the picture is good, but you should explain the picture more. Your Scribe post is really good.

ReplyDeleteGreat post Reiner! Helped out!

ReplyDeleteEven though I saw the same video from Oliver, I liked it since it's a good video. Not a lot of examples so you can improve on that next time.

ReplyDeletegood job Reiner but next time please put in some more examples because with just words and one example of doing it is a little bit harder to understand as aposed to using 3 different ways

ReplyDeleteGood Job Renier! i liked how you made one of the important words a different colour and I think that if you had another picture it would explain a bit more on dividing fractions.

ReplyDeleteGood job Reiner! I like how you added a video and how you explained to us that we should convert whole numbers into fractions. Next time, you can improve by adding pictorial representations.

ReplyDeleteGood job Reiner you really explained dividing fractions well. Next time you should add pictures as an example so we know how it will look like, but it still a good job.

ReplyDeleteGood job, Reiner! I like how you explained it and the video really helped. Next time, I suggest you put more pictures to help us understand your work.

ReplyDeleteGood job! You explained it really well and your video was also good and very easy to get. You couldve embedded the links properly though and add more pictures next time. But you still did good.

ReplyDeleteGood job, you should have added a picture of the actual fraction but the way you wrote it was also great (: good job.

ReplyDeleteGood Job! I liked your picture representation but, maybe next time you should add more examples.

ReplyDeleteGreat job Reiner you explained it very well also you have a great video. Next time i suggest you create pictures so it's easier to understand. But everything else is great.

ReplyDeleteGood job Reiner! You explained it very well. Maybe next time, you should add more pictures.

ReplyDeleteGood job Reiner! You explained everything very clearly. Maybe next time you should add more pictures.

ReplyDeleteGood job Reiner! I like how you explained everything well and that you added a video. Next time you should add more pictures
