# Lesson 13

Rectangles with Fractional Side Lengths

### Problem 1

- Find the unknown side length of the rectangle if its area is 11 m
^{2}. Show your reasoning. - Check your answer by multiplying it by the given side length (\(3\frac 23\)). Is the resulting product 11? If not, revise your previous work.

### Problem 3

A television screen has length \(16\frac12\) inches, width \(w\) inches, and area 462 square inches. Select **all** the equations that represent the relationship of the side lengths and area of the television.

\(w \boldcdot 462 = 16\frac12\)

\(16\frac12 \boldcdot w = 462\)

\(462 \div 16\frac12 = w\)

\(462 \div w= 16\frac12\)

\(16\frac12 \boldcdot 462 = w\)

### Problem 4

The area of a rectangle is \(17\frac12\) in^{2} and its shorter side is \(3\frac12\) in. Draw a diagram that shows this information. What is the length of the longer side?

### Solution

### Problem 5

A bookshelf is 42 inches long.

- How many books of length \(1\frac12\) inches will fit on the bookshelf? Explain your reasoning.
- A bookcase has 5 of these bookshelves. How many feet of shelf space is there? Explain your reasoning.

### Problem 6

Find the value of \(\frac{5}{32}\div \frac{25}{4}\). Show your reasoning.

### Solution

### Problem 7

How many groups of \(1\frac23\) are in each of these quantities?

- \(1\frac56\)
- \(4\frac13\)
- \(\frac56\)

### Solution

### Problem 8

It takes \(1\frac{1}{4}\) minutes to fill a 3-gallon bucket of water with a hose. At this rate, how long does it take to fill a 50-gallon tub? If you get stuck, consider using a table.
