Ms. Sue,
1) Multiply:
1/5 * 3/4 = 3/20
2) Multiply as I showed you above.
3) Divide:
60/(3/4) = 60 * (4/3) = ?

catalina,
that would equal 45?

catalina,
but why would you multiply and then divide?

catalina,
I mean 80 not 45

Ms. Sue,
No. The answer to number 3 is not 45. Multiply (60/1) * (4/3).
When we divide fractions, the divisor must be inverted and then multiplied.
