Hi Katie-Leigh,

I like seeing you one the forum. :)

I am not sure if you understand.  It is good to say thank you but if you do not really understand it is very important that you say so.  :D

One and 7/10 is 6 and 4/5 of what number?

Just give the unknown number a letter untill we work out what it is.  N is good :)

so the question becomes:

One and 7/10 is 6 and 4/5 of N?

of means times so we have

One and 7/10 is 6 and 4/5 x N?

$$\frac{7}{10}=6\frac{4}{5}\times N\\ \frac{7}{10}=N\times 6\frac{4}{5}\\$$

Now the opposite of multiply is divide so to get N all by itself you will need to divide by that mixen numeral

$$\frac{7}{10}\div 6\frac{4}{5}=N\times 6\frac{4}{5}\div 6\frac{4}{5}\\ \frac{7}{10}\div 6\frac{4}{5}=N\\ N=\frac{7}{10}\div 6\frac{4}{5}\\$$

You can finish it on the calculator or by hand :)

Do you completely understand?

If you don't, try and explain what is bothering you about it .......................... Jan 21, 2016

Convert the mixed fractions into just fractions. Ex. one and two thirds = 5/3. "is" means equal, and "what number?" would be an unknown variable x.

1 7/10=17/10

6 4/5=34/5

Let the number be N

17/10N=34/5, solve for N
