1. Question:

Felicia makes ½ gallon of fruit punch. She pours an equal amount into 8 glasses.

What fraction of a gallon fruit punch is in each glass?

The fraction of a gallon fruit punch is in each glass is 1/16

Step-by-step explanation:

Given

Size of fruit punch = ½ gallon

Number of glass = 8

Required

Fraction of a gallon fruit punch is in each glass?

To solve this question, the following assumption has to be made.

– The 8 glass cups are of equal sizes.

Having said that;

The interpretation of the question is that, the fruit is evenly distributed into the 8 glass cups.

Mathematically, the size of the fruit punch will be divided by the number of glass cups.

So, we have

Fraction = ½ ÷ 8 (convert ÷ to *)

Fraction = ½ * ⅛

Fraction = 1/16

Hence, the fraction of a gallon fruit punch is in each glass is 1/16
