Personalized Online Tutoring

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 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
