# 5/8 DIVIDED BY 3/10 .Write answer in lowest terms.?

There's a few different ways to get your answer, but probably the simplest (without getting into details as to why this works) is just to invert and multiply. In other words, if you want to divide 5/8 by 3/10, just multiply 5/8 by 10/3. Multiply straight across - numerator by numerator, and denominator by denominator. You'll get 50/24. This reduces to 2 and 2/24, or 2 and 1/12.

Another way: convert to decimals and divide, then convert back to fractions. You'd get 0.625 / 0.3 = 2.08333 . . ., which again is equal to 2 and 1/12.
5/8 / 3/10= the first fraction stays the same but the second fraction you flip. so 3/10 turns into 10/3 then you multiply
5/8 * 10/3= 50/24= which is an improper fraction turns into 25/12 which is an improper fraction which turns into 2 1/12
5/8 / 3/10=
5/8 * 10/3=
50/24=
25/12=
2 1/12
(5/8)/(3/10)=(5/8)*(3/10)
cancel 5 and 10=> 10 bcoms 2
ie 1/8*3/2=3/16 or.1875

whenever you have a fraction divided by a fraction, multiply the top fraction by the recipricol of the bottom fraction. so in your case, multiply 5/8 by 10/3. (10/3 is the reciprical of 3/10). so, 5 times 10 is 50, and 8 times 3 is 24. that gives you 50/24. now, how many times can 24 go into 50? twice, because 24 times 2 is 48. then there is 2 left over (50-48=2). so your answer is 2 and 2/24, which reduces to 2 and 1/12. if you don't want it left as a mixed number, it is 25/12. hope this helps!
5/8 divided by 3/10

Ok, well firstly, when you divide a fraction by another fraction, it is the same as multiplyingby it's inverse.
For example, what' is 2 divided by 1/3? It's 6.
What is 2 mulitplied by 3? It's 6. (Three is the same as 3/1, which is the inverse of 1/3.)

So, 5/8 divided by 3/10 is the same as
5/8 * 10/3.

And now all you have to do is multiply the numerators and the denominators.

5/8 * 10/3

= 50/24

Now we simplify. What is the biggest number that goes into both 50 and 24?? It's 2. So divide both numbers by 2.

= 25/12

Now we convert it into a proper fraction. How many times does 12 go into 25?
Twice.
And what is left over?
Just 1 (25 - 12*2 = 1)

Good luck!
:-D
its 2 and 1/12
5/8 divided by 3/10 by ten goes like this

First let us make 3/10 become 10/3
because whenever you divide you are just multiplying by the reciprocal (the fraction flipped)

so now you 5/8 * 10/3

5*10=50
8*3=24

50/24 reduced is

25/12

or 2 1/12

or 2.0833333333333333333333333333...
