Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01000/1 * 1/6 = 1000/6...So, basically....1000 divided by 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(1/6)*1000 = one sixth of one thousand. If we evaluate that, it comes to 1000/6, both numerator and denominator can be divided by 2 for reduction: 500/3. Since a third of anything is equal to .33333333 to infinity, the more correct answer would be to leave it at 500/3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0However, because they asked us to get dollars: 500/3 is equal to 500 / 3 = 166.67 dollars. Hope that helps!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You only need to reduce if your answer winds up in a fraction form and is reduceable, which this one doesn't....This one is in decimal form...So, you're okay. :D
