# Concept of Fraction as a Division

Fraction and division are related to each other. Let's see how.

*Example: *

Show that 3 ÷ 4 = | 34 | . |

Let's suppose we have 3 pizzas that are divided equally among 4 friends => 3 ÷ 4. |

We will show that each friend gets => | 34 | of a pizza |

3 pizzas are divided among 4 friends.

So, each of the friend gets 1/4 of each of the 3 pizzas.

3 ÷ 4

= 1

4of 3 (pizzas)

= 1

4× 3

= 1

4× 3

1

= 1 × 3

4 × 1

= 3

4

Therefore, each friend gets 3

4of a pizza.
