## McGraw-Hill Math Grade 5 Answer Key Chapter 8 Lesson 2 Dividing Fractions by Whole Numbers

**Divide**

**Find each quotient. Use multiplication to check your answers.
**Question 1.

\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 5 = ____________

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 5 = 0.1.

Explanation:

\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 5 = 0.5 ÷ 5

= 0.1 or \(\frac{1}{10}\).

Check:

Dividend = Quotient × Divisor

\(\frac{1}{10}\) × 5 = 0.5 or \(\frac{1}{2}\).

Question 2.

\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 4 = ____________

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 4 =

Explanation:

\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 4 = 0.5 ÷ 4

= 0.125.

Check:

Dividend = Quotient × Divisor

=> 0.125 × 4 = 0.5 or \(\frac{1}{2}\).

Question 3.

\(\frac{1}{3}\) ÷ 3 = ____________

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{3}\) ÷ 3 =

Explanation:

\(\frac{1}{3}\) ÷ 3 = 0.33 ÷ 3

= 0.11.

Check:

Dividend = Quotient × Divisor

0.11 × 3 = 0.33 or \(\frac{1}{3}\)

Question 4.

\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ 6 = ____________

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ 6 = 0.0417.

Explanation:

\(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ 6 = 0.25 ÷ 6

= 0.0417.

Check:

Dividend = Quotient × Divisor

0.0417 × 6 = \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Question 5.

\(\frac{1}{5}\) ÷ 3 = ____________

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{5}\) ÷ 3 = 0.2.

Explanation:

\(\frac{1}{5}\) ÷ 3 = 0.2 ÷ 3

= 0.67.

Check:

Dividend = Quotient × Divisor

0.67 × 3 = 0.2 or \(\frac{1}{5}\)

Question 6.

\(\frac{1}{3}\) ÷ 5 = ____________

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{3}\) ÷ 5 = 0.67.

Explanation:

\(\frac{1}{3}\) ÷ 5 = 0.33 ÷ 5

= 0.67.

Check:

Dividend = Quotient × Divisor

0.67 × 5 = 0.33 or \(\frac{1}{3}\)

**Question 7.

Yolanda has \(\frac{1}{4}\) of a box of markers. She wants 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?

Answer:

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 = 4.

Number of box of markers each person gets = Number of boxes of markers Yolanda has ÷ Number of people she wants to divide them

= \(\frac{1}{4}\) ÷ 4

= 0.25 ÷ 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?

Answer:

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 ÷ Number of people she wants to divide them

= \(\frac{1}{5}\) ÷ 7

= 0.2 ÷ 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?

Answer:

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 painting ÷ Number of people

= \(\frac{1}{6}\) ÷ 3

= 0.17 ÷ 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?

Answer:

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 ÷ Number of people

= \(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ 2

= 0.5 ÷ 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?

Answer:

Length of the car each person washes = 0.11.

Explanation:

Length of the car Jack and two friends are washing = \(\frac{1}{3}\)

Number of people = 3.

Length of the car each person washes = Length of the car Jack and two friends are washing ÷ Number of people

= \(\frac{1}{3}\) ÷ 3

= 0.33 ÷ 3

= 0.11.
