Another Fraction divided by whole number. My answer is 54 but somehow I doubt that's right.
Question
2 1/3 : 18 = ?
2 1/3 2x3= 6 + 1 = 7
7/3 : 18 = 7/3 : 18/1 = 0/3 x 1/18 = 0/54
where'd the 0/3 come from?
remember the lesson learned here http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...hole-numb.html
(2 1/3)/ 18 = (7/3)/(18/1) = (7/3)*(1/18) = 7/54
I decided to explain anyway. And I found I did the one earlier wrong. -.- sorry about that. lol, this is how I did it:
Convert 2 1/3 into an irregular fraction:
7/3
Convert 18 into a fraction:
18/1
Change division to multiplication and use the reciprocal of 18/1 (flip it around):
7/3 X 1/18=7/54
Yeah, so it's 7/54.
