Fractions of a Set

I was learning about unit fractions of a set.

One thing that worked for me was turning a fraction into a division. The line in the middle means that it's divided by so if it was 3/5 of 30 you would have to go 30 divided by 5 = 6, and then 6 x 3 = 18.

One thing that was tricky for me was when the numbers are big and I don’t know the basic facts that go with them.
