# How do you simplify 50000 div 0.001?

Aug 14, 2016

$50 , 000 , 000$

#### Explanation:

When we are faced with a division by a decimal, change the denominator to a whole number.

$\frac{50 , 000}{0.001} \times \frac{1000}{1000} = \frac{50 , 000 , 000}{1}$

=$50 , 000 , 000$

Notice that $\frac{1000}{1000} = 1$ so by multiplying by 1, we are not changing the value of the fraction at all, just what it looks like.
