I was thinking that I have to multiply but that doesn't make sense. However, I am terrible at story problems.
A child's dose of medicine is 1/6 of a premeasured dose cup. If the bottle of a medicine is the size of 9 doses, how many children's doses are there in the bottle?

You're right. Multiply: 9 * 6

thank you. I actually was thinking I needed to multiply and then divide but I should divide first, which would inclue inverting the 1/6 into 6/1. Duh.

My thought processes were simpler.
We get 6 child's doses in one premeasured cup.
