Accepted Solution

A:

What is 4/12 Divided by 81?
Methods
Breaking down the problem:
First, let’s break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 4/12, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 81:
Numerator of the dividend: 4
Denominator of the dividend: 12
Whole number and divisor: 81
So, what is 4/12 Divided by 81? Let’s work through the problem and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 4/12 Divided by 81, Step-by-step
First let’s set up the problem:
4
12
÷
81
\frac{4}{12} ÷ 81
12 4 ÷ 81
Step 1:
The first step of this solution is to multiple the denominator of the dividend, 12, by the whole number 81:
12 x 81 = 972
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:
972/4 = 243/1
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,
4 divided by 12/81 =
243
