An orange has about $\frac14$ cup of juice. How many oranges are needed to make $2\frac12$ cups of juice? Select all equations that represent this question.
 $ {?} \boldcdot \frac 14= 2\frac12$
 $\frac14 \div 2\frac12 = {?}$
 ${?} \boldcdot 2\frac12 = \frac14$
 $2\frac12 \div \frac14 = {?}$
Problem 2
Mai, Clare, and Tyler are hiking from a parking lot to the summit of a mountain. They pass a sign that gives distances.
 Parking lot: $\frac34$ mile
 Summit: $1\frac12$ miles
Mai says: “We are one third of the way there.” Clare says: “We have to go twice as far as we have already gone.” Tyler says: “The total hike is three times as long as what we have already gone.”
Can they all be correct? Explain how you know.
Problem 3
Priya’s cat weighs $5\frac12$ pounds and her dog weighs $8\frac14$ pounds. Estimate the missing number in each statement before calculating the answer. Then, compare your answer to the estimate and explain any discrepancy.

The cat is _______ as heavy as the dog.

Their combined weight is _______ pounds.

The dog is _______ pounds heavier than the cat.
Problem 4 (from Unit 4, Lesson 15)
Before refrigerators existed, some people had blocks of ice delivered to their homes. A delivery wagon had a storage box in the shape of a rectangular prism that was $7\frac12$ feet by 6 feet by 6 feet. The cubic ice blocks stored in the box had side lengths $1\frac12$ feet. How many ice blocks fit in the storage box?
 270
 $3\frac38$
 80
 180
