# Servings of Rice

A pot contains 2$\frac{1}{3}$ cups of rice. How many $\frac{1}{2}$-cup servings does the pot contain?

- Write a division problem to represent this situation.
- Solve the problem using any method you wish.
- Check your answer.

Ask yourself:

- What is the total amount of rice in the pot? You should divide the total amount of rice into equal groups of what size? How many equal-sized groups are there?
- Did you write 2 1 3 as a fraction? Would rewriting both fractions so they have a common denominator help you find the answer?
