45/8 (divided by) 5
when working with fraction, to divide is to multiply by the reciprocal of the fraction in the denominator: (45/8)*(1/5)=
can you type out the steps so can write them in my notes
begin with: (45/8)/(5) then: (45/8)*(1/5), since the reciprocal or 5 is 1/5 then multiply across: 45/40 finally simplify by dividing numerator and denominator by 5: 9/8
okay i get it, i was confused when they told me to multiply division
well now you are no longer confused, praise the lord
