Most people initially get hung up on the Division of fractions and Look at the above example and ask "How can1⁄2 be divided by1⁄6 and equal 3?"
So, let's think about a large Pizza. Now envision half (1⁄2) of a large pizza sitting next to one with just one slice left (1⁄6). How many of those (1⁄6) slices would it take to equal the Half (1⁄2) of a pizza.
Some people use the wording "how many times will __ Go Into __." In this case it would be: how many times will one sixth go into one half.
The reason it seems wrong when you look at it is because only fractions behave this way and we usually use whole numbers.
