Accepted Solution

A:

What is 3/9 Divided by 56?
Methods
Breaking down the problem:
First, let’s break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 3/9, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 56:
Numerator of the dividend: 3
Denominator of the dividend: 9
Whole number and divisor: 56
So, what is 3/9 Divided by 56? Let’s work through the problem and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 3/9 Divided by 56, Step-by-step
First let’s set up the problem:
3
9
÷
56
\frac{3}{9} ÷ 56
9 3 ÷ 56
Step 1:
The first step of this solution is to multiple the denominator of the dividend, 9, by the whole number 56:
9 x 56 = 504
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:
504/3 = 168/1
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,
3 divided by 9/56 =
168
