Thank you Steve for your help! I need help on another question. I have to show 10/8 divided by 5/8 on a number line. I don't know how to set this up. I am lost!!! Please help to explain this. Thank you

    Hmmm. Think of the 1/8 as a unit. You have 10 units divided by 5 units. The answer is 10/5 = 2

    Mark off 5/8 on the line, mark off another 5/8 and note that 5/8 + 5/8 = 10/8. So, 10/8 ÷ 5/8 = 2.

    arithmetically, 10/8 ÷ 5/8 = 10/8 x 8/5 = 80/40 = 2
