Use factor families to show that if a x b = c, then c / a = b. Reason that since there are b portions of 1/b in 1, then there must be a x b portions of 1 / b in a. See that dividing a whole number by a unit fraction determines how many of that unit fraction is in the whole number. Use factor families to show that a / 1/b = c so c x 1/b = a. Use visual fraction models to divide whole numbers by unit fractions. Divide whole numbers by unit fractions without visuals.
