Breaking down the problem:
First, letβs break down each piece of the problem. We have the fraction, 17/10, which is also the dividend, and the whole number, or the divisor, which is 50:
Numerator of the dividend: 17
Denominator of the dividend: 10
Whole number and divisor: 50
So what is 17/10 Divided by 50? Letβs work through the problem, and find the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.
What is 17/10 Divided by 50, Step-by-step
First letβs set up the problem:
17
10
Γ·
50
\frac{17}{10} Γ· 50
10 17 β Γ· 50
Step 1:
Take the whole number, 50, and multiply it by the denominator of the fraction, 10:
10 x 50 = 500
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:
10
β
50
17
=
500
17
\frac{ 10 \cdot 50 }{17} = \frac{500}{17}
17 10 β
50 β = 17 500 β
To display the answer to 17/10 Divided by 50 in decimal form, you can divide the numerator, 500, by the denominator, 17. The answer can be rounded to the nearest three decimal points, if needed:
500
17
=
500
17
=
29.41
\frac{500}{17} = \frac{500}{17}= 29.41
17 500 β = 17 500 β = 29.41
So, in decimal form, 17 divided by 10/50 = 29.41
And in its simplest fractional form, 17 divided by 10/50 is 500/17
