"My daughter gets distracted easily"

"My daughter gets distracted very easily and Ms. Medini and other teachers were patient with her and redirected her back to the courses.

With the help of Etutorworld, my daughter has been now selected in the Gifted and Talented Program   for the school district"

- Nivea Sharma (via TrustSpot.io)

Let us examine the division of whole numbers by fractions now. The steps that are  listed below should be used to divide a whole number by a fraction:

Step 1 :  Keep the whole number the same.

Step 2 : Change the division sign into a multiplication sign

Step 3 : Flip the fraction you are dividing by.

Step 4 : Multiply the whole number by the number on the top of this flipped fraction.

Step 5 : Divide this result by the number on the bottom of the flipped fraction.


For Example  : Division of whole number 10 by ⅚

Step 1 : Keep the whole number the same. 10

Step 2 : Change sign to sign

Step 3 : Flip the fraction ⅚ to 6/5

Step 4 : Now, 10⅚ can be written as 10 6/5 . Multiplying 10 with 6 of the flipped Fraction 6/5 will give 60

Step 5 : 60/5 =12

So, 10⅚=12

There have been times when we booked them last minute, but the teachers have been extremely well-prepared and the help desk at etutorworld is very prompt.

Our kid is doing much better with a higher score.
