Hey ssharish.
Basically what they have is factor 700 into 12. Doing so gives 700/12 = 58 remainder 4 or in other words: 700 = 58*12 + 4.
Doing a substitution we get:
700/12 = (58*12 + 4)/12 = 58 + 4/12.
Hello,
I been working through a set of excrise and I hit the problem
7/12 = ?%
And this is now it gets solved
=> 7/12 * 100
=> 700/12
=> 58 * 12 + 4 / 12
=> 58 4/12%
=> 58 1/3%
I see how its worked out, but however what I dont understand is this ( 58 * 12 + 4) / 12. Looking at it I can understand how 58 * 12 got derived. 700/12 will give 58.3. Following that the 12 in the numertor disappeares. I need to understand how? The only way i can think of doing that is striking of 12 from both numerator as well as in the denominator. But doing that it wont derive me 58 4/12%
I know its a simple question. I'm sure I would get an answer to it
Thanks!
