Dividing a 2-digit number by 1 1/7

  1. Select a 2-digit number.
  2. Multiply it by 7.
  3. Divide the product by 8.
   Example:
  1. The number chosen to divide by 1 1/7 is 26.
  2. Multiply by 7: 7 × 26 = 140 + 42 = 182
  3. Divide by 8: 182/8 = 22 3/4
  4. So 26 divided by 1 1/7 = 22 3/4.

   See the pattern?

  1. The number chosen to divide by 1 1/7 is 61.
  2. Multiply by 7: 7 × 61 = 427
  3. Divide by 8: 427/8 = 53 3/8
  4. So 61 divided by 1 1/7 = 53 3/8.
