I need to show how to solve this:

Question - 50.50/ 0.5

The calculator shows the answer 101.00
Can you tell me how to solve it?

  • Math -

    The calculator is right. I am not certain what is your question.

  • Math -

    That should be a negative - 101.0.

    When you divide by a decimal, you need to more the decimal point in the numerator to make it a whole number. If you're working the problem on paper you'll divide -505 by 5 to get -101.
