How do you simplify 3.7 div 1.1?

Jun 25, 2017

$\setminus \approx 3.36363$ (if you want less digits then $3.364$)

Explanation:

First option
Rounding. $1.1 \setminus \approx 1.0$
$3.7 \setminus \div 1.0 = 4.0$, so $3.7 \setminus \div 1.1 \setminus \approx 3.7$
This is off by a pretty large interval, so it's better to use the second option.

Second option
You can write this quotient as a fraction by multiplying both numerator and denominator by $10$:
$\frac{3.7}{1.1} = \frac{3.7 \times 10}{1.1 \times 10} = \frac{37}{11} = 1 \frac{4}{11}$
