The purpose of this task is to show three problems that are set in the same kind of context, but the first is a straightforward multiplication problem while the other two are the corresponding "How many groups?" and "How many in each group?" division problems. It is important for students to see each of these types of problems. Computational fluency is best put to use when students solve problems set in appropriate contexts.
