# Joshua cuts 3 strings into a number of equal pieces. Each piece is 1/2 of a string into how many pieces does Joshua cut the 3 strings?

Since we are dividing the 3 strings into groups of $\frac{1}{2}$, the problem is:
$\frac{3}{1} \div \frac{1}{2} = \frac{3}{1} \cdot \frac{2}{1} = \frac{6}{1} = 6$
