Divide 4 1/2 by 2/3​

Answer:

6 3/4 or 27/4

Step-by-step explanation:

convert the mixed fraction to an improper fraction

4 1/2 = (2*4+1)/2 = 9/2

then divide 27/4 by 2/3; note that you have to find the reciprocal of 2/3 then change the operation to multiplication, therefore the new equation will be:

9/2 x 3/2 = (9 x 3) / (2 x 2) = 27/4 or 6 3/4

hope this helps
