what is 5/8 x 1 and 1/2 divided by 15/16
PLEASE ANSWER ASAP, IF U KNOW A FORMULA FOR HOW TO WORK THIS OUT PLEASE TELL ME, I NEED THE FORMULA FOR GCSE.
any number times 1 is itself. Therefore 5/8*1=5/8
Any number divided by a fraction in basically that number times the reciprocal of the second number. The reciprocal of a fraction is just the denominator and the numerator switched.
1/2 / 15/16 (note here the / in between the two numbers is divide)
= 1/2 * 16/15
