Using Fraction Bars

7
1/2 of 1/3 is equal to 1/3 of 1/2 This is an example of the commutative property. In this case 1/2 × 1/3 = 1/3 × 1/2 = 1/6.

8
2/3 × 1/2 = 2/6

10
(1)1/2 × 1/3 = 1/6 (2) 1/2 × 1/4 = 1/8 (3) 1/3 × 1/2 = 1/6 (4) 2/3 × 1/2 = 2/6 Compare and look for relationships. Multiply the numerator times the numerator and the denominator times the denominator
