Accepted Solution

A:

What is 12/8 Divided by 57?
Methods
Breaking down the problem:
First, let’s break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 12/8, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 57:
Numerator of the dividend: 12
Denominator of the dividend: 8
Whole number and divisor: 57
So, what is 12/8 Divided by 57? Let’s work through the problem and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 12/8 Divided by 57, Step-by-step
First let’s set up the problem:
12
8
÷
57
\frac{12}{8} ÷ 57
8 12 ÷ 57
Step 1:
The first step of this solution is to multiple the denominator of the dividend, 8, by the whole number 57:
8 x 57 = 456
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:
456/12 = 38/1
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,
12 divided by 8/57 =
38
