1.)William fills 1/3 of a water bottle in 1/6 of a minute. How much time will it take him to fill the bottle?

(1/6) / (1/3) = x / 1 cross-multiply

1/6 = (1/3)x mutiply both sides by 3

3/6 minutes = x = 1/2 of a minute

2.) Michael plays 1/5 of a song in 1/15 of a minute. How much timw will it take him toplay an entire song?

(1/15) / (1/5) = x / 1 cross-multiply

(1/15) = (1/5) x multiply both sides by 5

5/15 minutes = x = 1/3 minutes

3.) Gabriel used 1/3 of a liter of milk to make 1/9 of a jug of tea. How much milk is required to fill the jug?

(1/3) / (1/9) = x / 1 cross-multiply

(1/3) = (1/9)x multiply both sides by 9

(9/3) liters of milk = x = 3 liters of milk
