100 divided by 16 = 6.66 - How did I work this out? I used the SLEP short division techinque, Six 16s go into 100 with remainder 4, then six into 40 = 6 and I do it again and get 6.66.
I then multiply the answer to the top number 1 which = 6.66 but hang on a second... the correct answer to this sum is 6.25%
Next EAT FRUIT question
100 divided by 16 = 6.66
6.66 x = 6 = 39.6
However in this book of riddles it says 100 divided by 16 = 6.25 and 6.25 x 6 is 37.5%
So where am I going wrong? Why is my short devision techinque not working?
