Reasoning: Is the solution of w x 11/12=19 greater than or less than 19? How can you tell without solving the equation

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

The solution is greater than 19.

The first thing to think about is: The solution to the above equation is the value of  "w"

Also remember that 11/12 is less than one

So to get "w", you divide the right hand side of the above equation by 11/12 (actually the right hand side is 19), then you get that w is greater than 19.

It is more clear also if you solve it

w=19/(11/12)=20.7

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