cheryl,rita and four of their friends go to a movie and share equally a 48ounce bag of popcorn and three 48inch licorice laces. find the fraction of popcorn each gets and the fraction of licorice each gets.

Each gets 1/6 of the goodies.
1/6 * 48 = ? ounces
1/6 * 3 = ? piece of licorice 
divide 6 into 48.. you get 8

3 x 48 inch = 144 inch
each will get 144/6 inches of licorice
=> 24 inch. 
they will each get

I had the exact same math question in my ace section in the bits and pieces book and I am in 5 th grade but I had trouble with that too
