(1.) How many s are in 1?

(2.) How many s are in 1?

(3.) How many s are in 1?

Activity #3

Use a Tape Diagram to Represent a Division Equation. • Read the question below and use the tape diagram to provide your response. Show your working clearly.

We can think of the division expression 10 ÷ 2 ½ as the question: “How many groups of 2 ½ are in 10?” Complete the tape diagram to represent this question. Then find the answer.

Challenge #1

How many groups of are in 1?

Complete the tape diagram to represent the question: “How many groups of 2 are in 7?” Then find the answer.

Challenge #2

How many groups of day are in 1 week? Draw a tape diagram to show the relationship between the quantities and to answer the question. Use the graph paper below if needed.
