2. anonymous

first!

3. anonymous

Divide by 16. What is $$\ \huge 36 \div 16?$$

4. anonymous

2.25?

5. anonymous

Yes, or in fractional terms: reduce $$\ \huge \frac{36}{16}$$

6. anonymous

Okay

7. anonymous

$$\ \huge = \frac{9}{4}$$. I divided both sides by $$\ \huge 4$$.

8. anonymous

take 16 to the right hand side of the equality sign 16 will be divided with 36 and the lowest term will be 9/4

9. anonymous
