Q:
# What is 60 Divided by 12/11?

Accepted Solution

A:

Let's consider a numerical problem: What is 60 divided by 12/11?

**Methods**

Before diving into the solution, it's important to understand the parts of the problem. We have the number 60 to be divided, named as dividend, and a fraction, 12/11, functioning as the divisor. Breaking the divisor into its components gives us:

- Dividend or whole number: 60
- Numerator of the divisor: 12
- Denominator of the divisor: 11

The problem reads: What is 60 divided by 12/11? Let's solve it, and present the answer in both fraction and decimal forms.

**Step-by-Step**

Setting up the problem:

\[ \frac{60}{\frac{12}{11}} \]**Step 1:** Multiply the dividend (60) by the denominator of the divisor (11)

**Step 2:** Make the numerator of the divisor the new denominator of the fraction, thus the answer becomes:

A fraction where the denominator is 1 is considered as an improper fraction, which can be simplified to just the numerator. Hence, as the numerator is a whole number, the answer in decimal form is not needed.

Thus,

\[ \frac{60}{\frac{12}{11}} = 55 \]
