Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, 75/100 = 3/4 and you can always write \[ {a over b} * c = a * {1 over b} * c = ac *{1 over b} = ac : b \] So, my trick is to divide whole number by denominator (this follows from the fact that dividing by factor is multiplying by reciprocal and vice versa) and then multiplying by numerator.
