Three neighbors are sharing a rectangular strip of land fir a garden. They divide the land into 24 equalsized pieces. What fraction of the land does each person get if they share it equally? Write the answer in more than one way

If there are 24 equalsized pieces, each gets 1/3 of them, which is 8 pieces. You can do the cutting up into 24 pieces in different ways.

If you take 24 divided by three it would equal up to eight.
Then if you multiply eight times three it would equal up to 24.
Finally if you take 8 and put it on top of 24 it would make a fraction.

Each person would get 8 pieces of land.

Hmm.. Hard question; but i hope my conjecture is right. First, you can cut the land strips into 24ths. Each person will get 8 pieces of it. Another way is to do the same thing but each person gets 3 pieces. By the way I have the same question for my homework, so I'm not exactly sure if this answer is right. Overall, I hope this helped!
