This video illustrates how to use an array as a visual model for solving a word problem involving the division of fractions and mixed numbers. The problem asks students to determine the width of a rectangular fennec fox den based on its length and area. In the accompanying classroom activity, students get additional practice solving another more difficult area problem featuring the division of fractions and mixed numbers. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
