• 3 divided by 1/6 is like 3x6
• Yes, that is right.
• I'm in 8th grade and reviewing this :(
• its ok everyone has its own speed to school for me i do 4th grade reading insted of 5th
• You can just do 3 x 6 = 18 pieces.
• Makes VERY sense thank you
• A Mixed number has a whole number part and a fraction part.
Rather than simply having a fraction with a bigger numerator than a denominator (an 'improper fraction'), we sometimes write out the full number and the left part of a fraction. For example, we say "1 and 3/4 inches", rather than "7/4" of an inch.
• Should I write it to remember it
• Yes do it. If writing it down helps you
