Accepted Solution

A:

What is 16/9 Divided by 32?
Methods
Breaking down the problem:
First, let’s break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 16/9, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 32:
Numerator of the dividend: 16
Denominator of the dividend: 9
Whole number and divisor: 32
So, what is 16/9 Divided by 32? Let’s work through the problem and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 16/9 Divided by 32, Step-by-step
First let’s set up the problem:
16
9
÷
32
\frac{16}{9} ÷ 32
9 16 ÷ 32
Step 1:
The first step of this solution is to multiple the denominator of the dividend, 9, by the whole number 32:
9 x 32 = 288
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:
288/16 = 18/1
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,
16 divided by 9/32 =
18
