Dividing a 2-digit number by 2 2/3

  1. Select a 2-digit number.
  2. Multiply by 3.
  3. Divide by 8.
   Example:
  1. The 2-digit number chosen to divide by 2 2/3 is 32.
  2. Multiply by 3: 3 × 32 = 96
  3. Divide by 8: 96/8 = 12
  4. So 32 divided by 2 2/3 = 12.

  1. The 2-digit number chosen to divide by 2 2/3 is 61.
  2. Multiply by 3: 3 × 61 = 183
  3. Divide by 8: 183/8 = 22 7/8
  4. So 61 divided by 2 2/3 = 22 7/8.
