5/8 = x/40 Look at you denominators. What did you multiply 8 by to get 40? Multiply the numerator by that same number and you will have your answer. You could also multiply top to bottom across the equal sign then divide by the other number (like you were doing a proportion) (...
Okay, we can do it by leaving your 3 3/4 in fraction form. It is still a division problem, so you will have to use the reciprocal of the 3 3/4. 60,000 divided by 3 3/4...you must turn the 3 3/4 into an improper fraction..15/4. Now you have 60,000 divided by 15/4 In order to di...
I'd first turn the 3 3/4 acres into a decimal since this can be done easily. Then, divide the total amount by the number of acres. 60,000 divided by 3.75 should give you the price per acre. Good luck!
Okay. What grade are you in?
This isn't really about putting a fraction into simplest form but about turning a fraction into a decimal in order to campare two numbers. To do that, you have to divide. the bottom number slides to the outside of the divided by sign and the top number stays on the inside....
I'd set this up like a fraction with hits/at bats. Then, to turn it into a percent, just divide the numerator by the denominator. So... 104/325 = .320 88/275 = .320 Hope this helps!
17 out of 30 is 17/30. Divide the numerator by the denominator to get the percent. 17 divided by 30 is .5666. You should probably round to .57 which is 57%.
It is easiest to compare fractions when you have a common denominator. Just go ahead and multiply your denominators together and whichever numerator is bigger is the larger number. 13 x 15 = 195 (numerator) 17 x 15 = 255 (denominator) 12 x 17 = 204 (numerator) 15 x 17 = 255 (d...
Do one step at a time. First, take the 1/5 that is sawn off. 1 - 1/5 is the same as 5/5 - 1/5 = 4/5. Next, you have to take the 3/8 away from this. Remember when adding or subtracting fractions, you must have a common denominator...in this case, it will be 40. 4/5 - 3/8 or 32/...
