# What is 20/2 Divided by 40?

Accepted Solution

A:

What is 20/2 Divided by 40?
Methods
Breaking down the problem:
First, let’s break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 20/2, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 40:
Numerator of the dividend: 20
Denominator of the dividend: 2
Whole number and divisor: 40
So, what is 20/2 Divided by 40? Let’s work through the problem and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 20/2 Divided by 40, Step-by-step
First let’s set up the problem:
20
2
÷
40
\frac{20}{2} ÷ 40
2 20 ÷ 40
Step 1:
The first step of this solution is to multiple the denominator of the dividend, 2, by the whole number 40:
2 x 40 = 80
Step 2:
The result of this multiplication will now become the denominator of the answer. The answer to the problem in fraction form can now be seen:
80/20 = 4/1
A fraction that has 1 as its denominator is an improper fraction. So, we should simplify this to just the numerator. Since the numerator is a whole number, there is no reason to write the answer in decimal form.
So,
20 divided by 2/40 =
4
