This is the second problem in a series of three tasks involving fraction multiplication that can be solved with pictures or number lines. The first, 5.NF Running to school, does not require that the unit fractions that comprise 3/4 be subdivided in order to find 1/3 of 3/4. While multiplication of fractions (or decimals) yields appropriate solutions which should be recognized as such, students need to see and be able to produce the types of solutions represented here as well.
