By taking a quotient, we conclude that each friend will get 4/35 gallons of popcorn.

### How much popcorn will each friend receive?

To solve this, we need to take the quotient between the total amount of popcorn, which we know is 4/5 gallons, between the total number of friends, which we know is 7.
So we just need to take the quotient between 4/5 and 7, it will be:
N = (4/5)/7
That can be rewritten to:
N = (4/5)*(1/7)
The denominators will be multiplied, so we get:
N = 4/(5*7) = 4/35
From this, we conclude that each friend will get 4/35 gallons of popcorn.
