The question I am asked and trying to figure out how to solve step by step so I can understand Is: 25y divided by 1/5y. Thank you.

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

25y/(1/5)y

we can cancel the Ys because they appear in the numerator and denominator once. Therefore, we remain with:

25/(1/5)

but the denominator is a fraction, we can convert the division into multiplication and find the reciprocal of the deniminator, i.e a/(1/b)=a*(b/1)=a*b

=25*(5/1)

=25*5

=125
