A school garden had been divided into \(\frac{7}{8}\) square meter plots for students. If the area of the garden is 210 square meters, how many students can get plots?



Since the 210 square meter garden has been divided into plots of area \(\frac{7}{8}\) square meter each, the number of plots is 210 divided by \(\frac{7}{8}\). To divide by \(\frac{7}{8}\), flip the fraction to \(\frac{8}{7}\) and multiply.
\(210 \times ( \frac{8}{7}) = 240\). So there are 240 plots.
