# What times 6 equals 100?

Dec 3, 2016

$16 \frac{2}{3}$

#### Explanation:

The questions asks for a number, when multiplied by $6$ gives $100$

Let the number be $x$

Then,

$\rightarrow x \cdot 6 = 100$

Divide both sides by $6$

$\rightarrow \frac{x \cdot \cancel{6}}{\cancel{\textcolor{red}{6}}} = \frac{100}{\textcolor{red}{6}}$

$\rightarrow x = \frac{100}{6}$

$\rightarrow x = \frac{50}{3}$

color(green)(rArrx=16 2/3=16.bar6

By the way, $16. \overline{6}$ means $16.666 \ldots .$ repeating forever

Hopefully this helps!!! :)
