Ryan estimates that he uses 2/3 cup of syrup each time he eats pancakes. How many times will he be able to eat pancakes without running out of syrup if he has a giant bottle of syrup that contains 48 cups. Do you multiply
48x2/3 and get that he will be able to eat 32 pancakes?

No.
Divide 48 by 2/3.
Btw  you're not looking for the number of pancakes  but the number of times he'll eat pancakes with syrup from this bottle.

Suppose you used 2 cups every time you ate pancakes, you would divide 48 cups by the 2 cups. Right?
This is a division problem you will divide 48 by 2/3 which is the same thing as multiplying by 3/2, so you will multiply 48 times 3/2
Since you are using less than 1 cup each time then you should be able to eat pancakes more than 48 times.
