1. Calculate each of the following quotients. Homework Help ✎

1. 9.82 ÷ 0.2

Begin by rewriting the mixed number as a fraction greater than one.

$7\frac{1}{4}\div\frac{3}{8}=\frac{29}{4}\div\frac{3}{8}$

Calculate the quotient by multiplying by the multiplicative inverse.

$\frac{29}{4}\div\frac{3}{8} = \frac{29}{4}\cdot\frac{8}{3}$

Carry out the multiplication and then reduce the fraction to its simplified form.

$\frac{58}{3} = 19\frac{1}{3}$

Solve through regular long division. Don't forget to count the decimal places and move the decimal point in the quotient!
