Accepted Solution

A:

What is 6/18 Divided by 87?
Methods
Breaking down the problem:
First, let’s break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 6/18, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 87:
Numerator of the dividend: 6
Denominator of the dividend: 18
Whole number and divisor: 87
So, what is 6/18 Divided by 87? Let’s work through the problem and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 6/18 Divided by 87, Step-by-step
First let’s set up the problem:
6
18
÷
87
\frac{6}{18} ÷ 87
18 6 ÷ 87
Step 1:
The first step of this solution is to multiple the denominator of the dividend, 18, by the whole number 87:
18 x 87 = 1566
Step 2:
The result of this multiplication will now become the denominator of the answer. The answer to the problem in fraction form can now be seen:
1566/6 = 261/1
A fraction that has 1 as its denominator is an improper fraction. So, we should simplify this to just the numerator. Since the numerator is a whole number, there is no reason to write the answer in decimal form.
So,
6 divided by 18/87 =
261
