santi890 4 years ago whats 7/4 / (3/2) Simplify

• This Question is Closed
1. anhhuyalex

multiply 7/4 by the reciprocal of 3/2, which is 2/3

2. MetalPen

anhhuyalex stated it perfectly but I just want to make sure that you actually understand this rather then just learning the answer: Dividing is always multiplying by the reciprocal so if a division problem is too hard multiply by the reciprocal. (The number inverted.)

3. santi890

but how do i put the answer in a fraction it gave me 1.16666666666667

4. MetalPen

Well if it's a repeating decimal it's a very long and tedious process which I am still learning. Also it is your judgement call on whether to use multiplication or division to solve a division problem.
