Methods
Breaking down the problem:
First, letβs break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 20/8, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 99:
Numerator of the dividend: 20
Denominator of the dividend: 8
Whole number and divisor: 99
So what is 20/8 Divided by 99? Letβs work through the problem, and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 20/8 Divided by 99, Step-by-step
First letβs set up the problem:
20
8
Γ·
99
\frac{20}{8} Γ· 99
8 20 β Γ· 99
Step 1:
Take the whole number, 99, and multiply it by the denominator of the fraction, 8:
8 x 99 = 792
Step 2:
The result of this multiplication will now become the denominator of the answer. The answer to the problem in fraction form can now be seen:
8
β
99
20
=
792
20
\frac{ 8 \cdot 99 }{20} = \frac{792}{20}
20 8 β
99 β = 20 792 β
To display the answer to 20/8 Divided by 99 in decimal form, you can divide the numerator, 792, by the denominator, 20. The answer can be rounded to the nearest three decimal points, if needed:
792
20
=
198
5
=
39.6
\frac{792}{20} = \frac{198}{5}= 39.6
20 792 β = 5 198 β = 39.6
So, in decimal form, 20 divided by 8/99 = 39.6
And in its simplest fractional form, 20 divided by 8/99 is 198/5
