A piece of land measures 3 3/4 acres and is for sale at $60,000. What is the price per acre?

How do I set this up?
3*4+1=15/4
15/4 divided by 60,000/1????

  1. 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!

  2. I can not use decimals yet I need to work this out in fraction form and that is why I am stuck.

  3. 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 divide a fraction, you must invert or use the reciprocal of the "divided by" and change it to multiplication. So we have
    60.000/1 x 4/15 = 240.000/15
    Now, divide the numerator by the denominator and you will have your answer.

  4. okay now I see what I was doing wrong. I was multiplying 1/60,000 by 15/4 instead og 60,000/1

    my final answer is $16,000

  8. 3 3/4 divided by 60,000
    3 3/4 * 1/60,000 because you change to the reciprocal
    change 3 3/4 to 15/4
    SO 15/4 * 1/60,000
    I THINK THAT IS CORRECT
