Q:

What is 83 Divided by 9/20?

Accepted Solution

A:

The problem we are dealing with is 83 divided by 9/20. Here's how to break it down:

  • The whole number and the dividend is 83
  • The fraction's numerator is 9 and its denominator is 20

Now, let's solve the problem in both decimal and fractional forms. We can explain it through these steps:

In latex format, the problem is represented as:

\[ 83 \div \frac{9}{20} \]

Step 1 is to multiply 83 by the numerator, which is 20. This gives us 1660:

\[83 \times 20 = 1660\]

In step 2, the numerator becomes the denominator. It can be written in latex format as follows:

\[ \frac{ 83 \cdot 20 }{9} = \frac{1660}{9} \]

To represent the answer as a decimal, divide 1660 by 9 and round to three decimal points:

\[ \frac{1660}{9} = 184.44\]

Hence, 83 divided by 9/20 equals 184.44 in decimal form, and 1660/9 in fractional form.
