# Write each of the fractions below as a division expression. Then write each fraction as a whole number or mixed number

(I need help with this, because it confuses me as to how to write it as a division expression. Also sorry for no work saw.)

1. 5/4

2. 16/8

3. 14/3

4. 17/12

## All of those are shown as division problems. The sign / indicates division.

5/4 = 1 1/4

16/8 = 2

## 1/4

## To write each fraction as a division expression, we need to divide the numerator by the denominator.

1. 5/4 can be written as 5 ÷ 4.

2. 16/8 can be written as 16 ÷ 8.

3. 14/3 can be written as 14 ÷ 3.

4. 17/12 can be written as 17 ÷ 12.

Now, to write each fraction as a whole number or mixed number, we need to simplify the division expression to its simplest form.

1. 5 ÷ 4 = 1.25. Since the result is a decimal, we can also write it as a mixed number: 1 1/4.

2. 16 ÷ 8 = 2. This is already a whole number.

3. 14 ÷ 3 = 4 remainder 2 or 4 2/3 as a mixed number.

4. 17 ÷ 12 = 1 remainder 5 or 1 5/12 as a mixed number.
