Fraction Problems.

I have learnt how to use multiplication and division to solve a fraction problem.

E.g - Five people share an apple pie equally. Each person gets 1/5 of the pie.
25 slices of apples are put on top of the pie, which are also spread evenly amongst the slices of pie.
How many apple slices does each person get?

Answer: Each person gets 5 apple slices on each piece of pie.
5 divided by 25 = 5            5 x 5=25
