An old "trick" question......
30 / (1/2) = (30/1) / (1/2) =
(30/1) * (2/1) = 60/1 = 60
That is wrong answer CPhill. A half is a half is 50% only. You sure got tricked.
Stu that is not the wrong answer!
here im doing what CPhill did once again
30 devided by half so out here we have 30 and now half, we will take our half as 1/2 (which we all know what half is 1/2)
30 ÷ 1/2 (now here we will reciprocate the fraction on the right side as well as chnge division sign to multiplication one)
=30/1 x 2/1 (now look carefully here we have to multply 2 and 30 which will then give us our answer )
=60/1 ( as 60/1 means whole we will just write 60 as we dont need 1 out here)
If theres still some doubt left , im sure CPhill will help me correct it Stu!
Hope this helps!
. Ok thanks. I knew how to solve it, I am more refering to words being literal.
