    the unit rate for kilograms of leaves per bag is 5 1/4 kilograms

    part = 7/3

    ratio of 7/3 = 4/9

    to get the whole, we must divided the part by its corresponding ratio.

    7/3 : 4/9

    Steps in dividing fractions.

    step1. get the reciprocal of the 2nd fraction

    1st fraction = 7/3

    2nd fraction = 4/9 ⇒ reciprocal = 9/4

    step2. multiply the 1st fraction to the reciprocal of the second fraction

    7/3 * 9/4 = 7 * 9 / 3 * 4 = 63/12

    step3. simplify the fraction

    63/12 = 5 3/12 or 5 1/4
