## Answers ( No )

well, she should eat then 1/5 ÷ 7, that way she’d split the 1/5 lb in 7 equal pieces, one for each day

So 1/5 pound for 7 days

1/5 ÷ 7

rewrite the 7 as a fraction of 7/1

1/5 ÷ 7/1

keep the first fraction, change the division sign to multiplication, flip the second fraction

1/5 * 1/7

multiply across

(1 * 1) / ( 5 * 7)

1/35

She should eat 1/35 of a pound each day to make her 1/5 of a pound last a week, or seven days.

Hope this helps
