## Of course! Here's a word problem involving the division 12 divided by 1/4:

"Tom has 12 cookies and wants to divide them equally among his 3 friends. However, his friends can only eat ¼ of a cookie at a time. How many times will each friend need to eat to finish all the cookies?"

To solve this problem, first understand that dividing by a fraction is the same as multiplying by its reciprocal. Therefore, we can rewrite the division as multiplication:

12 ÷ 1/4 = 12 * 4/1

Now, multiply the numerator (12) by the reciprocal of the fraction in the denominator (1/4), which is 4/1:

12 * 4/1 = 48/1

So, each friend will need to eat 48/1 (or simply 48) times to finish all the cookies.
