Accepted Solution

A:

What is 15/16 Divided by 75?
Methods
Breaking down the problem:
First, let’s break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 15/16, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 75:
Numerator of the dividend: 15
Denominator of the dividend: 16
Whole number and divisor: 75
So, what is 15/16 Divided by 75? Let’s work through the problem and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 15/16 Divided by 75, Step-by-step
First let’s set up the problem:
15
16
÷
75
\frac{15}{16} ÷ 75
16 15 ÷ 75
Step 1:
The first step of this solution is to multiple the denominator of the dividend, 16, by the whole number 75:
16 x 75 = 1200
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:
1200/15 = 80/1
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,
15 divided by 16/75 =
80
