    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?

    Answer:

    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
