### Course: Grade 6 (Virginia)>Unit 3

Lesson 8: Dividing mixed numbers

# Dividing mixed numbers

How do we divide mixed numbers? We can convert the mixed numbers to improper fractions, then simplify the division problem by finding the reciprocal of one of the fractions. This video also includes a demonstration of different ways of simplifying the final answer.

• why this have to be hard
• I don't like math that much either but in the real world shopping for food requires math so math is important. It will only get harder.
• Can anyone plz explain visually (3/2) / (5/3) =??
• ofcourse, 3/2 / 5/3 you can use the trick keep change flip so you would keep 3/2
change the division sign to a multiplication sign and flip 5/3 to 3/5 and then multiply straight across and you would get 9/10
• If it's multiple answers then it's probably not correct. (PEMDAS)
• How is 4 the same thing as 20/5?
• The equation was 4 4/5...you just need to so the whole number which is 4 times the denominator and that would be 4 x 5 = 20 so that is why he is saying 4 equals 20/5
• how do i do this its so confuesing
• You simplify the mixed number and the multiply the reciprocal.
• Hello! recently I have been having trouble in math- I am in 5th grade but am in AMP, meaning I skip a grade in math. But math is still very hard, and I have to re-watch these videos over and over as my other classmates understand eminently. I focus and stuff, but then forget a step, so I have to redo my problems a lot. I'm honestly really behind ... I have been working hard to catch up, but this happened in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade, too. I can't just quit AMP, either. I just want to say thank you and all, but--- Do any of you guys have tips to help me? I try, I really do, but... It's hard, you know? Anyways, thanks...
• It sounds like you are really working hard to study, do your assignments, and look for outside help, which are some of the best things you can do. I would recommend privately stating your concern to your teacher and also try studying with other classmates if possible.

• The multi-stage fitness test (MSFT), also known as the beep test, bleep test, PACER (Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular Endurance Run), PACER test, FitnessGram PACER test, or the 20 m Shuttle Run Test (20 m SRT), is a running test used to estimate an athlete's aerobic capacity (VO2 max).

The test requires participants to run 20 meters back and forth across a marked track keeping time with beeps. Every minute or so, the next level commences: the time between beeps gets shorter; participants must run faster. If a participant fails to reach the relevant marker in time, they are cautioned. A second caution ends the test for that runner. The number of shuttles completed is recorded as the score of that runner. The score is recorded in Level.Shuttles format (e.g. 9.5). The maximum laps on the PACER test is 247,[1] which former Central Middle School student Dennis Mejia achieved,[2] the only person to ever reach such a level.

The test is used by sporting organizations around the world along with schools, the military, and others interested in gauging cardiovascular endurance, an important component of overall physical fitness. The multi-stage fitness test is also part of most health-related fitness test batteries for children and adolescents, such as Eurofit,[3] Alpha-fit,[3] FitnessGram[4][3] and ASSOFTB.[5]

The multi-stage fitness test was first described by Luc Léger[6] with the original 1-minute protocol, which starts at a speed of 8.5 km/h, and increases by 0.5 km/h each minute. Other variations of the test have also been developed, where the protocol starts at a speed of 8.0 km/h and with either 1 or 2-minute stages, but the original protocol is nevertheless recommended.[7] The test appears to encourage maximal effort by children. Additionally, the test's prediction of aerobic capacity is valid for most individuals, including those who are overweight or obese.The multi-stage fitness test (MSFT), also known as the beep test, bleep test, PACER (Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular Endurance Run), PACER test, FitnessGram PACER test, or the 20 m Shuttle Run Test (20 m SRT), is a running test used to estimate an athlete's aerobic capacity (VO2 max).
