Question

# Jonathan has 3 pints of syrup. He wants to split the syrup evenly into -pint containers. Find the number of containers Jonathan will need.

- 24
- 3

Hint:

### The first step to dividing fractions is to find the reciprocal (reverse the numerator and denominator) of the second fraction. Next, multiply the two numerators. Then, multiply the two denominators. Finally, simplify the fractions if needed.

## The correct answer is: 24

### Here, it is given that Jonathan has 3 pints of syrup. He divides it in into containers of 1⁄8 pints. We have to find the number of containers needed by him.

Number of containers needed = 3 ÷ 1⁄8

= 3 × 8

=24.

Hence, the correct option is C.

Dividing two fractions is the same as multiplying the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction.
