**Essential Question** What Are Some Ways to Multiply a on Fraction by a Whole Number?

**A.**

Joann wants to make 6 batches of fruit punch. How many cups of orange juice does she need?

**B.**

One way to represent 6 × \(\frac{2}{3}\) is to use repeated addition.

**C.**

You can think of \(\frac{2}{3}\) as 2 times \(\frac{1}{3}\).

\(\frac{2}{3}\) = 2 × \(\frac{1}{3}\)

So, 6 × \(\frac{2}{3}\) = 6 × (2 × \(\frac{1}{3}\)).

Use the Associative Property.

6 × (2 × \(\frac{1}{3}\)) = (6 × 2) × \(\frac{1}{3}\)

= 12 × \(\frac{1}{3}\)

= \(\frac{12}{3}\) = 4

**A.**

Claudia has 8 yards of fabric. She needs \(\frac{3}{4}\) of the fabric to make a banner. How many yards of fabric does she need?

You can use models to represent the problem.

You need to find \(\frac{3}{4}\) of 8.

**B.**

**Step 1**

Since you are finding \(\frac{3}{4}\) of 8, divide the model into 4 equal parts.

**C.**

**Step 2**

Since you are finding \(\frac{3}{4}\) of 8, take 3 of those parts to make 6.

Claudia needs 6 yards of fabric to make a banner.

Divide 2 into 4 equal parts.

Each part is \(\frac{1}{2}\). So 3 parts make \(\frac{3}{2}\).

**Essential Question** How Can You Use a Model to Multiply Fractions?

**A.**

There was \(\frac{1}{4}\) of a pan of lasagna left. Tom ate of this amount. What fraction of a whole pan of lasagna did he eat?

Find \(\frac{1}{3}\) of \(\frac{1}{4}\) to solve the problem.

**B.**

**One Way**

Divide one whole into fourths.

Divide \(\frac{1}{4}\) into 3 equal parts.

Divide the other \(\frac{1}{4}\)s into 3 equal parts.

12 parts make one whole, so one part is \(\frac{1}{12}\).

\(\frac{1}{3}\) × \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{1}{12}\)

**C.**

**Another Way**

Shade 1 of the 3 rows yellow to represent \(\frac{1}{3}\).

Shade 1 of the 4 columns red to represent \(\frac{1}{4}\).

The orange overlap shows the product.

1 out of 12 parts are shaded orange.

\(\frac{1}{3}\) × \(\frac{1}{4}\) = \(\frac{1×1}{3×4}\)

Tom ate \(\frac{1}{12}\) of the pan of lasagna.

**Convince Me! Reasoning** Find \(\frac{1}{4}\) × \(\frac{1}{5}\) using the model. Explain your work.

**Another example**

Find \(\frac{2}{3}\) × \(\frac{3}{4}\) using a number line.

\(\frac{1}{3}\) means 1 of 3 equal parts, so \(\frac{1}{3}\) of \(\frac{3}{4}\) is \(\frac{1}{4}\)

\(\frac{2}{3}\) means 2 of 3 equal parts, so \(\frac{2}{3}\) of \(\frac{3}{4}\) is 2 times \(\frac{1}{4}\).

\(\frac{2}{3}\) × \(\frac{3}{4}\) = \(\frac{2}{4}\) or \(\frac{1}{2}\)

**Essential Question** How Can You Find the Product Question of Two Fractions?

**A.**

Amelia takes pictures with her smartphone. Of the pictures, \(\frac{5}{6}\) are of animals. What fraction of all her pictures are of dogs?

You need to find \(\frac{3}{4}\) of \(\frac{5}{6}\) to answer the question.

**B.**

**Step 1**

Estimate \(\frac{3}{4}\) × \(\frac{5}{6}\).

Since both fractions are less than 1, the product will be less than 1.

**C.**

**Step 2**

Multiply the numerators. Then multiply the denominators.

\(\frac{3}{4}\) × \(\frac{5}{6}\) = \(\frac{3 \times 5}{4 \times 6}\)

Since \(\frac{15}{24}\) < 1, the answer is reasonable.

So, \(\frac{15}{24}\) or \(\frac{5}{8}\) of all Amelia’s pictures have dogs in them.

\(\frac{15}{24}\) and \(\frac{5}{8}\) are equivalent fractions.

**Convince Me! Model with Math** \(\frac{1}{10}\) of the animal pictures on Amelia’s smartphone are of cats. Write and solve an equation to find what fraction of all her pictures have cats in them.

**A.**

Jenny has a rectangular garden. What is the area of her garden?

The area of a rectangle is found by multiplying the length by the width.

**B.**

**Step 1**

\(\frac{1}{4}\) × \(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{1}{12}\) because 12 rectangles each \(\frac{1}{4}\) wide and \(\frac{1}{3}\) high fit in a unit square.

**C.**

**Step 2**

A rectangle of width \(\frac{5}{4}\) yards and height \(\frac{2}{3}\) yard is tiled with 5 × 2 rectangles of area \(\frac{1}{12}\).

so, \(\frac{5}{4}\) × \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{5 \times 2}{4 \times 3}\) = \(\frac{10}{12}\)

The area of Jenny’s garden is \(\frac{10}{12}\) square yard.

**Essential Question** How Can You Find the Product of mixed Numbers?

**A.**

A clothing factory has machines that make jackets. The machines operate for 7\(\frac{1}{2}\) hours each day. How many jackets can Machine A make in one day?

**B.**

**One Way**

You can use an area model to find the partial products. Then add to find the final product.

**C.**

**Another Way**

You can also use an equation to find the product. Rename the mixed numbers, then multiply.

7\(\frac{1}{2}\) × 2\(\frac{3}{4}\) = \(\frac{15}{2}\) × \(\frac{11}{4}\)

= \(\frac{165}{8}\)

= 20\(\frac{5}{8}\)

Machine A makes 20 jackets each day.

Since 20 is close to the estimate of 24, the answer is reasonable.

• check to be sure my work and answer make sense.

**C.**

Find the area of the family room.

A = 17\(\frac{1}{3}\) × 13\(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{52 \times 27}{3 \times 2}\) = \(\frac{1,404}{6}\) = 234

The area of the family room is 234 square feet.

Find the area of the kitchen.

A = 12 × 10\(\frac{3}{4}\) = \(\frac{12 \times 43}{1 \times 4}\) = \(\frac{516}{4}\) = 129

The area of the kitchen is 129 square feet.

Add to find the total area. 234 + 129 = 363

Calculate the total cost. 363 × 12 = 4,356

The total cost is $4,356.

Find 4 × \(\frac{2}{3}\) using a number line.

Each jump is \(\frac{2}{3}\).

1 × \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{2}{3}\)

2 × \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{4}{3}\) = 1\(\frac{1}{3}\)

3 × \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{6}{3}\) = 2

4 × \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{8}{3}\) = 2\(\frac{2}{3}\)

So, 4 × \(\frac{2}{3}\) = 2\(\frac{2}{3}\)

This makes sense because \(\frac{2}{3}\) is less than 1, so 4 × \(\frac{2}{3}\) should be less than 4.

Rename fractions, then multiply.

\(\frac{7}{2}\) × \(\frac{23}{8}\) = \(\frac{161}{16}\) = 10\(\frac{1}{16}\) The product 10\(\frac{1}{16}\) is close to the estimate, 12.

An area model can also represent the product of mixed numbers.

A rectangular field of crops is 4\(\frac{2}{3}\) miles by 2\(\frac{3}{4}\) miles. Calculate 4\(\frac{2}{3}\) × 2\(\frac{3}{4}\) to find the area.

Estimate: 4\(\frac{2}{3}\) × 2\(\frac{3}{4}\) is about 5 × 3 = 15.

Use an area model to find the partial products.

Add the partial products.

8 + 1\(\frac{1}{3}\) + 3 + \(\frac{1}{2}\) =

8 + 1\(\frac{1}{6}\) + 3 + \(\frac{3}{6}\) =

8 + 3 + 1\(\frac{2}{6}\) + \(\frac{3}{6}\) = 12\(\frac{5}{6}\)

So, 4\(\frac{2}{3}\) × 2\(\frac{3}{4}\) = 12\(\frac{5}{6}\)

The area of the field is 12\(\frac{5}{6}\) square miles. The product is close to the estimate of 15, so the answer is reasonable.

**Remember** to compare your answer with your estimate.

Estimate. Then find each product.

**Set G**

pages 361-364

Multiplication can be thought of as scaling, or resizing, a fraction.

Will the product of 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) × \(\frac{3}{4}\) be greater than or less than 4\(\frac{1}{2}\)? How can you tell without multiplying?

Since \(\frac{3}{4}\) < 1, 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) × \(\frac{3}{4}\) < 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) × 1

Will the product of 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) × 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) be greater than or less than 4\(\frac{1}{2}\)? How can you tell without multiplying?

Since 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) > 1, 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) × 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) > 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) × 1.

So, 4\(\frac{1}{2}\) × 2\(\frac{1}{3}\) will be greater than 4\(\frac{1}{2}\).

**Remember** that a fraction is equal to 1 if the numerator and denominator are the same.

Without multiplying, decide which symbol belongs in the box: <, >, or =
