How can one division expression have more than one answer?

My 5th grader is in Ag Math and they are to answer questions regarding math in their journal daily. Today's question is "Explain how one division expression can have many different answers and give an example to support your answer". We are truly stumped, we maybe overthinking the question. My daughter thinks that it could have different answers if the expression ask for an estimate or exact number. Please help!!

+ more- less

I agree with Kelly. As long as you keep the top and bottom of a fraction (a division expression) proportional, each answer remains equivalent. 1/2 equals 3/6 which equals 5/10.

Given the division expression "5 divided by 10," possible answers include 1/2, .5, and even 50%. What seems to be important in this question is that all these different looking numbers express the same quantity.

A half a pie is still a half a pie -- any way you slice it :)
