Question description

Mr. Toms' 4th grade class just concluded a unit on the solar system. To celebrate how hard students worked, Mr. Toms decided to purchase Milky Way candy bars for students to share. The grocery store only had 17 of the king size candy bars, but there are 22 students in his class. If Mr. Toms buys the bars, about how much of a bar would each student receive?

Is the amount about 1/2, 1/4, 3/4, 2/3 or 1 whole?

Where could one cut be made that would be a nice approximate?
