You are watching: 1/5 divided by 5

Divide: 5 : 1/3 = 5/1 · 3/1 = 5 · 3/1 · 1 = 15/1 = 15 splitting two fountain is the exact same as multiply the very first fraction by the reciprocal value of the 2nd fraction. The an initial sub-step is to discover the reciprocal (reverse the numerator and also denominator, reciprocal of 1/3 is 3/1) of the 2nd fraction. Next, main point the two numerators. Then, main point the two denominators.In other words - five separated by one third = fifteen.

Rules because that expressions with fractions: Fractions - just use a forward slash between the numerator and also denominator, i.e., for five-hundredths, enter

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

**The cut separates the molecule (number over a portion line) and also denominator (number below).Mixed numerals**(mixed fountain or combined numbers) compose as essence separated through one an are and portion i.e.,

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

**-5 1/2**.

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

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

**1.45**.

**The colon :**and also slash

**/**is the symbol of division. Can be provided to divide combined numbers

**12/3 : 43/8**or deserve to be supplied for write complicated fractions i.e.

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

**An asterisk ***or

**×**is the symbol for multiplication.

**Plus +**is addition, minus sign

**-**is subtraction and

**()<>**is mathematical 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• multiply fractions: 7/8 * 3/9• splitting Fractions: 1/2 : 3/4• indices of fraction: 3/5^3• fractional exponents: 16 ^ 1/2• including fractions and also mixed numbers: 8/5 + 6 2/7• dividing integer and also fraction: 5 ÷ 1/2• facility fractions: 5/8 : 2 2/3• decimal to fraction: 0.625• fraction to Decimal: 1/4• portion to Percent: 1/8 %• compare fractions: 1/4 2/3• multiply a portion by a entirety number: 6 * 3/4• square root of a fraction: sqrt(1/16)• reducing or simple the portion (simplification) - dividing the numerator and denominator of a portion by the very same non-zero number - equivalent fraction: 4/22• expression v brackets: 1/3 * (1/2 - 3 3/8)• link fraction: 3/4 the 5/7• fountain multiple: 2/3 of 3/5• divide to discover the quotient: 3/5 ÷ 2/3The calculator follows renowned rules for order that operations**. The most usual mnemonics for remembering this stimulate of work are:

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

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

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

**GEMDAS**- Grouping signs - base (), Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

**it is in careful, always do multiplication and also division**before

**addition and subtraction**. Part operators (+ and -) and (* and also /) has the same priority and also then need to evaluate indigenous left come right.
