Most people initially get hung up on the Division of fractions and Look at the above example and ask "How can 1⁄2 be divided by 1⁄6 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.

About Video tutorials contributor - Zita Schmitt:
I'm a Certified Pharmacy Technician and have been conducting PCTB Review Sessions since 2001. My work in Pharmacy started in October of 1986 under the gentle guidance of a great mentor: John R.
Pharmacy provided me with a home away from home, with a second family and place where I grew as a person. Working for the same company for 23 years gave me the opportunity to develop my skills and knowledge and move up gradually. By the time I left, I had been a pharmacy trainer for 29+
retail stores. Each had an average of 4-5 Techs which received guidance from me on a regular basis.
After seven years in this position, I had interacted with many great technicians, cashiers, pharmacists, store staff and management. This is the interaction that I miss! Through my Youtube Channel, I hope to serve as guidance to those seeking to pass the PTCB Exam.
