Work problems 1-18 with Fraction Circles. With fractions, the times sign may be thought of as the word “of.” For example, 1/2 x 1/4 means 1/2 of 1/4. Also, since 1/2 x 1/4 = 1/4 x 1/2, 1/2 of 1/4 means the same as 1/4 of 1/2, so the problems below can be worked from either the left or the right. Think of a rule to work the starred problems without Fraction Circles.
