how would 3 neighbors divide a sharing a rectangle piece of land divide it into 24 equal pieces and what fraction of land would each get

This is easy, divide 24 by 3, you should get 8, then you would have a fraction of 8/24 you would reduce that by finding out if 24 will go into eight, and if you do that right you should get 3, which we did in the top problem so you get 1/3.... :)
