You are making small pizzas. You have 12 cups of flour. Each pizza crust requires 3/4 cup of flour. How many pizza crusts can you make?
For these kinds of question, multiplication is the best way to go! Or even drawing a picture is helpful. What's 12 cups x (3/4 cup for each pizza crust)?
This would be a division problem. We need to divide the 12 cups into 3/4 cup individual serving. 12/(3/4) = 12 * (4/3) = 48/3 = 16 You can make 16 pizzas.
