Fill in the blank to make the equation true.
8/125*__ = 5/2.
I don't know how to do this with formulas and stuff, so I'll just kind of
talk through the way I blundered around and got the correct answer.
(5/2) • 125 = 312.5 then divide that by 8 to cancel out the 8.
We don't want to leave the answer (312.5) / (8),
that is, with a decimal fraction in the fraction, so
just double both the numerator and denominator.
That gives us 625/16. Now that I see the answer, I realize there was a better way to do it. Oh well.
Just to make sure, Check answer (8/125) • (625/16) = 5000/2000 = 5/2 so there you are.
