# What is 3/15 Divided by 26?

Accepted Solution

A:

What is 3/15 Divided by 26?
Methods
Breaking down the problem:
First, let’s break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 3/15, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 26:
Numerator of the dividend: 3
Denominator of the dividend: 15
Whole number and divisor: 26
So, what is 3/15 Divided by 26? Let’s work through the problem and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 3/15 Divided by 26, Step-by-step
First let’s set up the problem:
3
15
÷
26
\frac{3}{15} ÷ 26
15 3 ÷ 26
Step 1:
The first step of this solution is to multiple the denominator of the dividend, 15, by the whole number 26:
15 x 26 = 390
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:
390/3 = 130/1
A fraction that has 1 as its denominator is an improper fraction. So, we should simplify this to just the numerator. Since the numerator is a whole number, there is no reason to write the answer in decimal form.
So,
3 divided by 15/26 =
130
