I need help with this question: 7.24÷7

Sep 2nd, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

7.24 is the same as 724/100

therefore the question can be written as:

724/100 ÷ 7 

Now solve 

724/100 x 1/7 = 724/700

724/700 = 1.0343

Ans = 1.0343


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

There are three steps to divide fractions

Step 1. Turn the second fraction (the one you want to divide by) upside down 
(this is now a reciprocal).

Step 2. Multiply the first fraction by that reciprocal
Step 3. Simplify the fraction (if needed)

example 1/2 

1/2 ÷ 1/6

Step 1. Turn the second fraction upside down (it becomes a reciprocal):1/6 becomes 6/1

Step 2. Multiply the first fraction by that reciprocal:

1/2 x 6/1 = 6/2

Step 3. Simplify the fraction:

6/2 = 3
