# Question #838a1

Feb 3, 2018

The remainder is 21,666 & 2/3 or 21,666.666....

#### Explanation:

The amount taken away is 1/3, so what you have left is 2/3.

$\text{remainder} = \frac{2}{3} \cdot 32 , 500 = \frac{2 \cdot 32 , 500}{3} = \frac{65 , 000}{3}$

$\text{remainder} = \frac{64 , 998 + 2}{3} = 21 , 666 + \frac{2}{3}$

Or 21,666.666....

I hope this helps,
Steve
