Modified by Fishtank Learning, Inc.Alice wrote the fraction $${{36\over5}}$$ as a mixed number. Here is her work:
$$\frac{36}{5} = \frac{35}{5} + \frac{1}{5}$$ | (Step 1) |
$$=\left(7\times\frac{5}{5}\right)+\frac{1}{5}$$ | (Step 2) |
$${=7+{1\over5}}$$ | (Step 3) |
$${=7{1\over5}}$$ | (Step 4) |
Explain what Alice did in each step.
