# How do you divide rational numbers with variables?

Jan 9, 2015

Your question should be more specific but i will give you answer which i think you are looking for

Suppose we are give something like this;

Divide $\frac{36}{5}$ by $3 x$

First things first take the MI of $3 x$ that is $\frac{1}{3} x$

so now multiply both the terms $\frac{36}{5} \cdot \frac{1}{3} x$

Which is nothing but $\frac{12 x}{5}$

if u want to break it into a decimal $2.4 x$

So id you meant anything other than this plz comment i will come up with a different answer
