### A 1foot plank of wood is cut into 8 equal parts What fraction names in feet 2 pieces of the plank of wood How is the numerator and denominator found?

If the plank is cut into eight equal parts then divide eight into 1 foot to get the length of one part. 1 &divide; 8 = 1/8foot. So one part is one-eighth of a foot long. Two parts therefore measure twice that length. 2 x 1/8 = 2/8 foot. But, two divides into both the numerator and denominator so the fraction can be simplified 2 &divide; 2 = 1 and 8 &divide; 2 = 4. 2/8 = 1/4 foot.
