Accepted Solution

A:

What is 5/12 Divided by 35?
Methods
Breaking down the problem:
First, let’s break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 5/12, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 35:
Numerator of the dividend: 5
Denominator of the dividend: 12
Whole number and divisor: 35
So, what is 5/12 Divided by 35? Let’s work through the problem and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 5/12 Divided by 35, Step-by-step
First let’s set up the problem:
5
12
÷
35
\frac{5}{12} ÷ 35
12 5 ÷ 35
Step 1:
The first step of this solution is to multiple the denominator of the dividend, 12, by the whole number 35:
12 x 35 = 420
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:
420/5 = 84/1
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,
5 divided by 12/35 =
84
