234 over 16

Answer:

234 over 16 is a fraction which = 234 / 16, or 234 ÷ 16

This is called an improper fraction because the numerator is larger than the denominator.

1. Reduce the improper fraction to its lowest terms

Determine the prime factorization of both the numerator and denominator:

234 = 2 * 3 * 3 * 13

16 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 2

234 / 16 = (2 * 3 * 3 * 13) / (2 * 2 * 2 * 2)

Cancel factors which appear in both the numerator and the denominator

234 / 16 = (2 * 3 * 3 * 13) / (2 * 2 * 2 * 2)

234 / 16 = (2 * 3 * 3 * 13) / (2 * 2 * 2 * 2)

234 / 16 = (3 * 3 * 13) / (2 * 2 * 2)

234 / 16 = (117) / (8)

234 over 16, reduced to its lowest terms, is = 117 / 8

2. Show the answer as a decimal

234 / 16 = 234 ÷ 16, or 117 / 8

The decimal equivalent of 234 over 16 = 234 ÷ 16 = 14.625

3. Show the answer as a mixed number

234 / 16 = 234 ÷ 16, or 117 / 8

234 over 16, written as a mixed number:

234 / 16 = 14 + 10/16

14 & 10/16
