1/2 divided by 5/8

 

How many 5/8 of a chocolate bar is in 1/2 a chocolate bar

 

               

 

is in 1/2 a chocolate bar

 

               

 

 

Well it fits less than 1 time.

I can see that it fits only 4/5 times

 

Check:

\(\frac{1}{2}\div \frac{5}{8}\\ =\frac{1}{2}\times \frac{8}{5}\\ =\frac{4}{5}\)

 

that is great :)
