# Divide 1 2/5 by 21.

I got 15 as the answer.

## If that is 2/5

(2/5)/21 =

since 21 is actually 21/1

flip and multiply

(2/5)*(1/21)= 2/105= 0.01904

___________________________________

If it's

(12/5)/21= 0.1143

Please be more specific as to whether that is a #1 or 1 is part of the question because you put a space in between the 1 and 2/5 which would lead to different answers but not 15.

## Then again it could have been a fraction with

1 2/5 = 7/5 if this is true...

(7/5)/21= 0.0666

Writing it differently can mean alot of things you see.

## I also got 0.6666666666666 when I used a calculator. I typed 1.4 / 21.

## How'd you get 15?

## 1 is part of the problem.

1 and 2/5 divided by 21

The possible answers given are :

a. 1/15

b. 1 2/105

c. 15

d. 29 2/5

## It's a- 1/15 = 0.666666666

## (1 2/5)/21 = (7/5)/21 = (7/5)x(1/21) =

1/15.

## I just copied it as a decimal (I didn't copy all the 6's) but if I had used the fraction function I would have also gotten 1/15 which is the same.

## To divide the mixed number 1 2/5 by 21, you need to convert the mixed number into an improper fraction and then divide it by 21.

First, convert the mixed number 1 2/5 into an improper fraction:

1 2/5 = (5*1 + 2)/5 = 7/5

Now, divide the improper fraction 7/5 by 21:

7/5 ÷ 21

To divide fractions, you need to invert the second fraction (21) and then multiply:

7/5 ÷ 21 = 7/5 * 1/21

Multiply the numerators and denominators together:

7/5 * 1/21 = 7/105

So, the answer is 7/105.

However, you mentioned that you got 15 as the answer. If you believe that is the correct answer, then please double-check your calculations to ensure accuracy.
