You are watching: 5/8 divided by 5

## Result:

### (5/8) : (1/4) = 5/2 = 2 1/2 = 2.5

Spelled an outcome in indigenous is 5 halfs (or two and one half).Divide: 5/8 : 1/4 = 5/8 · 4/1 = 5 · 4/8 · 1 = 20/8 = 4 · 5 /4 · 2 = 5/2 dividing two fractions is the exact same as multiply the an initial fraction by the reciprocal worth of the 2nd fraction. The very first sub-step is to uncover the mutual (reverse the numerator and also denominator, mutual of 1/4 is 4/1) that the 2nd fraction. Next, multiply the 2 numerators. Then, multiply the two denominators. In the following intermediate step, cancel by a common factor of 4 gives 5/2. In various other words - 5 eighths separated by one quarter = 5 halfs.

Rules because that expressions v fractions: Fractions - usage the cut “/” in between the numerator and also denominator, i.e., for five-hundredths, enter

**5/100**. If you are using mixed numbers, be sure to leaving a solitary space between the totality and portion part.

**The slash separates the numerator (number over a fraction line) and also denominator (number below).Mixed numerals**(mixed fountain or mixed numbers) compose as non-zero creature separated through one an are and portion i.e.,

**12/3**(having the very same sign). An example of a an unfavorable mixed fraction:

**-5 1/2**.

**Because cut is both signs for fraction line and also division, us recommended use colon (:) together the operator of division fractions i.e., 1/2 : 3**.

**Decimals (decimal numbers) get in with a decimal point .**and also they are automatically converted to fountain - i.e.

**1.45**.

**The colon :**and also slash

**/**is the prize of division. Can be provided to divide blended numbers

**12/3 : 43/8**or can be used for write complex fractions i.e.

**1/2 : 1/3**.

**An asterisk ***or

**×**is the symbol for multiplication.

**Plus +**is addition, minus sign

**-**is subtraction and

**()<>**is math parentheses.

**The exponentiation/power price is ^**- because that example:

**(7/8-4/5)^2**= (7/8-4/5)2

**Examples: • including fractions: 2/4 + 3/4• individually fractions: 2/3 - 1/2• multiplying fractions: 7/8 * 3/9• separating Fractions: 1/2 : 3/4• indexes of fraction: 3/5^3• spring exponents: 16 ^ 1/2• adding fractions and mixed numbers: 8/5 + 6 2/7• separating integer and also fraction: 5 ÷ 1/2• facility fractions: 5/8 : 2 2/3• decimal to fraction: 0.625• fraction to Decimal: 1/4• fraction to Percent: 1/8 %• to compare fractions: 1/4 2/3• multiply a fraction by a totality number: 6 * 3/4• square root of a fraction: sqrt(1/16)• reducing or simplifying the portion (simplification) - dividing the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the very same non-zero number - equivalent fraction: 4/22• expression with brackets: 1/3 * (1/2 - 3 3/8)• link fraction: 3/4 that 5/7• fractions multiple: 2/3 the 3/5• divide to uncover the quotient: 3/5 ÷ 2/3The calculator follows well-known rules for order of operations**. The most usual mnemonics for remembering this order of to work are:

**PEMDAS**- Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

**BEDMAS**- Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction

**BODMAS**- Brackets, that or Order, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction.

**be careful, always do multiplication and also division**before

**addition and subtraction**. Part operators (+ and -) and (* and /) has the exact same priority and also then must evaluate from left to right.
