• - [Instructor] In this video, we're going to try

• to figure out what 0.6 or 6/10 divided by two is.

• And I'll give you a little bit of a hint.

• We have 6/10 plotted on the number line right over here.

• And so one way to think about it is,

• if I wanted to go from zero to 6/10 in two jumps,

• how big would each of those jumps have to be?

• Pause this video and try to figure that out on your own

• before we work through it together.

• All right, so as I mentioned,

• one way to think about it is

• how can I go from zero to 6/10 in two jumps?

• Two equal jumps, I should say.

• Well, if we just eyeball it right over here,

• I could do one jump like that

• and then another jump like that.

• So I did one jump and then two jumps.

• And so one way to think about it is

• we've divided 6/10 into two jumps,

• and each of those jumps are how far?

• Well, each of those jumps are one, two, 3/10.

• So this is 3/10 or I could write it like this, 3/10.

• We have another one, two, 3/10.

• So this is going to be equal to 3/10.

• And we've thought about it in other ways.

• If you have six of something and you divide it by two,

• you're going to have two groups of three of that something.

• So if you have 6/10, and you wanna

• put it into two equal groups, well,

• each of those groups are going to be 3/10.
