What is 3/4 Divided by 5/8?

Accepted Solution


To understand the problem of dividing fractions, we need to break down each part. For the fraction 3/4 divided by 5/8, we first identify the numerators and denominators:

Numerator of the first fraction (dividend): 3  
Denominator of the first fraction (dividend): 4  
Numerator of the second fraction (divisor): 5  
Denominator of the second fraction (divisor): 8  

Now let's find the answer step by step:

Step 1: First thing to do in any division problem involving fractions is actually to multiply. Multiply the numerator of the first fraction by the denominator of the second fraction. That is,

3 * 8 = 24  

This becomes the numerator of the answer.

Step 2: Then, multiply the denominator of the first fraction by the numerator of the second fraction:

4 * 5 = 20  

This becomes the denominator of the answer.

Step 3: Combine the two answers to form a fraction, which is the result of the division:

24 / 20 = 6 / 5 (when simplified)

To find the decimal form, divide the numerator of the answer by the denominator:

24 / 20 = 1.200 

Thus, the fraction form of 3/4 divided by 5/8 is 6/5 and the decimal form is 1.200.
