Each person will get $\frac{3}{16}$

#### Explanation:

There are 4 people altogether - Kelly and her 3 friends.

Decide on the operation first. If she had 12 sweets to share among 4 people, each would get $12 \div 4 = 3$

We do exactly the same in this question.

Share $\frac{3}{4}$ between 4 people.

$\frac{3}{4} \div 4 \text{ write as } \frac{3}{4} \div \frac{4}{1}$

To divide by a fraction, multiply by its reciprocal

$\frac{3}{4} \times \frac{1}{4}$

=$\frac{3}{16}$

Each person will get $\frac{3}{16}$
