Dividing A Number By 1 1/5

Dividing a number by 1 1/5

  1. Select a number.
  2. Multiply it by 5
  3. Divide the result by 6.
   Example:
  1. The number chosen to divide by 1 1/5 is 24.
  2. Multiply by 5: 5 × 24 = 120
  3. Divide by 6: 120/6 = 20
  4. So 24 divided by 1 1/5 = 20.

   See the pattern?

  1. The number chosen to divide by 1 1/5 is 76.
  2. Multiply by 5: 5 × 76 = 350 + 30 = 380
  3. Divide by 6: 380/6 = 63 2/6
  4. So 76 divided by 1 1/5 = 63 1/3.
