This is the easiest problem in a series of three tasks involving fraction multiplication that can be solved with pictures or number lines. Students who solve this problem with a picture or using a number line do not need to subdivide the unit fractions that comprise 3/4 to find 1/3 of 3/4 since it is naturally composed of 3 pieces.
