Three neighbors are sharing a rectangular strip of land fir a garden. They divide the land into 24 equal-sized 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 equal-sized 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!

All your answer were great but I think there is only one way also I have this question in middle school Hackensack Mrs.Darling class 2015-2016 Kids in middle school.

Wait I you have to right in a different form I think you have to right the whole number the the fraction
P.S this is the same Anthony who said 2015-2016 Middle school Hackensack
P.P.S Just letting you know.
