Question

Divide the following fractions.
8 over 56 divided by 1 over 8

  1. 1 1 over 7
  2. 3 over 7
  3. 4 over 7
  4. 4 over 9

Hint:

The first step to dividing fractions is to find the reciprocal (reverse the numerator and denominator) of the second fraction. Next, multiply the two numerators. Then, multiply the two denominators. Finally, simplify the fractions if needed.

The correct answer is: 1 1 over 7


Here, we have to divide 8⁄56 by 1⁄8.
We have, 8⁄56 ÷ 1⁄8
= 8⁄56 × 8
= 8⁄7
=  1 1⁄7.
Hence, the correct option is A.

Dividing two fractions is the same as multiplying the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction.

Piper used 1 fifth meter of ribbon to create a border around a triangle. If each side of the triangle is the same length, find the ribbon Piper used for each side. Select the correct equation representing the ribbon Piper used

Here, we are given that piper uses 1/5 meter of ribbon to border around a triangle of equal side length. We have to find the expression that describes the side length of the triangle.
Total length of ribbon used = 1/5 meter.
Number of sides of a triangle = 3.
So, length of each side = 1⁄5 ÷ 3.
Hence, the correct option is C.

John has 12 gallons of water to fill buckets for field day. If each bucket needs ⅓ of a gallon to fill, find the number of buckets he can fill.

Here, it is given that John has 12 gallons of water to fill buckets and each bucket takes 1/3 gallons of water. we have to find the number of buckets that John can fill.
Let the number of buckets that John can fill be x.
Then, x × 1⁄3 = 12
=> x = 12 ÷ 1⁄3
=> x = 12×3
=> x =36.
Hence, John can fill 36 buckets and the correct option is C.
