Multiplication with Non-Unit Fractions
by: Staff



Answer:


She has solved two sevenths of them


Problems Solved = “two sevenths of them”

Replace the words “two sevenths” with the fraction “2/7”


Problems Solved = “2/7 of them”



Replace the word “them” with the number “21”


Problems Solved = “2/7 of 21”

Replace the word “of” with a multiplication sign.


Problems Solved = (2/7) * 21



Compute the final answer by multiplying the numbers

Problems Solved = (2/7) * 21

Problems Solved = (2) * (21/7)

Problems Solved = (2) * (3)

Problems Solved = 6


>>> The final answer is: 6 problems
