Find the greatest common factor of two whole numbers less than or equal to 100 and the least common multiple of two whole numbers less than or equal to 12. Use the distributive property to express a
sum of two whole numbers 1100 with a common factor as a multiple
of a sum of two whole numbers with no common factor. For example,
express 36 + 8 as 4 (9 + 2). 

How does representing quantities in different ways reveal different information about the quantities?

Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be
found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the
formulas V = l w h and V = b h to find volumes of right rectangular
prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving realworld
and mathematical problems. 

How is finding volumes with fractional units similar to and different from finding volumes with whole number units?
