How many 1/6s are in 1?

How many 1/6s are in 1/2 ?

• 6th grade math - ,

6/6=1 so there is 6 1/6 in one and 3/6=1/2 so there is 3 1/6 in 1/2

you have to divide,,
for the first one, 1 divided by i/6
1 / (1/6)
when you have to divide by a fraction, get first its reciprocal, that is interchange the numerator and denominator:
1/6 --> reciprocal is 6/1
then the operation now becomes multiplication:
1 / (1/6) becomes
1 * 6/1
*now solve for this one. :)

for the second one, it's almost same with the first, except that it's 1/2 divided by 1/6
(1/2) / (1/6)
(1/2) * (6/1)
*now solve for this one. :)

hope this helps~ :)
