Accepted Solution

A:

What is 2/8 Divided by 71?
Methods
Breaking down the problem:
First, let’s break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 2/8, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 71:
Numerator of the dividend: 2
Denominator of the dividend: 8
Whole number and divisor: 71
So, what is 2/8 Divided by 71? Let’s work through the problem and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 2/8 Divided by 71, Step-by-step
First let’s set up the problem:
2
8
÷
71
\frac{2}{8} ÷ 71
8 2 ÷ 71
Step 1:
The first step of this solution is to multiple the denominator of the dividend, 8, by the whole number 71:
8 x 71 = 568
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:
568/2 = 284/1
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,
2 divided by 8/71 =
284
