What is 4 divided by n is 1/2?

  • 6th grade math - ,

    First, you set it up: 4/n=1/2

    then, multiply n to both sides so: (n)(4/n)=(1/2)(n)
    the n cancels out on one side so it should look like: 4=1/2(n)

    now you just solve for n:
    4(1/2)=n so n=2

    4/n = 1/2

    It's a proportion. The same relationship between 4 and 1 exists between n and 2. What is that?

    I still don't get it.

    4 x 1 = ??

    Whatever that number is, multiply it by 2 for your answer.

  • 6th grade math - ,

    That means 4 times 1 is 4 and then multiply by 2 and so the answer is 8?

  • 6th grade math - ,

    Yes, that's right. And you can prove it:

    4/8 = 1/2

    Thanks! :)

    YW!! =)

  • 6th grade math - ,

    4 divided by 1 = 1/2

  • 6th grade math - ,

    2+s-3=6
    - -
    7 7

    Doesn't matter anymore, but I had to correct myself. It's supposed to be 4*2; not 4*1/2, my mistake!
