How do you express 75 pies in dozens?

Aug 12, 2016

$7 \frac{4}{12} = 7 \frac{1}{3}$dozen.

Or simply, 6 dozen with 3 pies left.

Explanation:

To change a number of items into dozens, you need to group them in twelves. This is the same as dividing by 12.

It would not be a problem if we had 180 for example.
$\frac{180}{12} = 15 \mathrm{do} z e n$

But in this case 75 does not divide exactly by 12.

Do the same anyway..
$\frac{75}{12} = 6$ dozen with 3 pies left over.

This can be written as $7 \frac{4}{12} = 7 \frac{1}{3}$dozen.

Or simply by stating 6 dozen with 3 pies left.
