## anonymous 3 years ago Multiply seven-eighths times twenty-eight

1. MathLegend

If I were you I would turn 28 into a fraction

2. MathLegend

You know any whole number is really what? Like for instance 7 as a fraction is really 7/1

3. MathLegend

So set up your multiplication of two fractions

4. MathLegend

7/8 * 28/1

5. anonymous

$\frac{ 7 }{ 8 } \times 28$

6. MathLegend

7. anonymous

8. anonymous

$\frac{ 196 }{ 8 }$

9. MathLegend

$\frac{ 7 }{ 8}*\frac{ 28 }{ 1}$

10. anonymous

196

11. anonymous

8

12. MathLegend

7*28 = 196 196 / 8= ?

13. anonymous

yep you're right. You can convert this into a mixed fraction or a decimal, whatever is asked.

14. anonymous

so it's 196 over 8?

15. anonymous

$24.5 / 24\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }$

16. MathLegend
