# Math Clip Art--Dividing Fractions by Whole Numbers--Example 100--Two Eighths Divided by 5

## Topic

Fraction Operations

## Description

This math clip art image demonstrates the process of dividing two-eighths by 5. The image provides a fraction model showing the division operation visually, probably depicting a pie or a bar divided into eight parts with two parts highlighted to represent the fraction two-eighths. This is further divided into five equal sections, showing in a simple way how division by a whole number affects fractions.

In the broader context of teaching resources, this image is part of a collection designed to elucidate varied fraction operations. By presenting different numerical scenarios with fractions and whole numbers, students can explore patterns and solidify their comprehension of fraction division.

Using clip art in teaching mathematical fractions is essential. Visual aids like these transform abstract ideas into digestible, concrete visuals, making learning more accessible. For instance, to divide two-eighths by 5, the model would split each highlighted section representing two-eighths into five smaller portions, thereby demonstrating how fractions become even smaller when divided by whole numbers.

Here's an engaging script for teachers: "Let's observe our model showing two-eighths. Suppose we want to share these two-eighths among five people equally. How would you do that? Notice how each part needs dividing. Count these smaller parts - what fraction do they now represent? What does this tell us about our original fraction?"
