Castor brought 6 3/4 cakes to share with 26 students. Did Castor bring enough for each student to have 1/4 of a cake? Explain your thinking and show your work

• fractions -

6 3/4 ÷ 26
= 27/4 ÷ 26
= mmmh, what do you think?

each student is to have 26 quarters = 26/4 and
we have 27/4 of them.
(I'll take the extra piece)

• fractions -

26 students and each gets 1/4 cake.
26 x 1/4 = 6 1/2 cales and Castor brought 6 3/4 cakes; therefore, he brought enough. There will be 1/4 cake left (enough for 1 more student).
